DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS
Our vision is to become a world leading department in both teaching and research. We guide, teach, and support students of all mathematical abilities and interests. We welcome students into our community of mathematical scholars. We share our ideas, grow in our knowledge, and learn from one another. We discover new mathematics using creativity and ingenuity. The Mathematics Department provides a wide range of programs of study in mathematics including courses, curriculum, and instructional practices that support effective student learning. A range of courses and curriculum relevant to particular focus areas, such as courses for students who are undergraduate and graduate mathematics. The goal of these programs of study is to equip all of our students with the conceptual understanding, computational skills, and persistent disposition required to use quantitative reasoning and analysis effectively in their personal and professional lives. For mathematics majors and graduate students, we aim to provide stimulating mathematical experiences that will bolster their future careers, whether that be the application of mathematics in practical contexts or contributions to the mathematical profession through teaching, productive scholarship and active participation in professional organizations. We also aim to promote and sustain an environment that fosters creativity, critical thought, enquiry, and active learning equity, inclusion, and diversity amongst our staff, faculty, and students, aiming to increase participation from groups that are historically underrepresented in Mathematics. The continued growth of faculty as both teachers and scholars of mathematics with active programs of research and professional involvement. The opportunities for close interaction between students and faculty, both within and beyond the classroom, including student mentoring and research opportunities.
The Department includes a departmental Library stocked with useful books on different fields of Mathematics. This mini library is stocked with almost 700 books of Mathematics for the use of Faculty Members/ Researchers and students. These books includes books on Differential Equation, Quantum Mechanics, Functional Analysis, Group Theory, Number Theory, Integral Equations, Fluid Mechanics, Algebra, Calculus, Topology, Numerical Analysis, Relativity, Astrophysics, Business Math and much more.
Mathematics is basically the study of quantity, structure, and change. Those who study Mathematics are known as Mathematicians. Mathematicians make use of variables, products, sums, and sequences to study number theories and perform mathematical analysis. There are vast applications of Mathematics in our daily life, such as from managing budgets to making computer graphics.
Even measuring food recipes for designing haircuts and making sense of medical scans, all involve counting, measuring, order, and relation. Mathematicians are detail-oriented as they perform quantitative reasoning and apply theories to real-world situations. Arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and calculus are branches of mathematics for study.
You can specialize in Economics and Mathematics or Statistics and Mathematics to gain jobs in the business, finance and accountancy services. Nowadays, there is a great demand for mathematicians in government and private districts due to rising technological advances and educational awareness. Due to vast applications of Mathematics in various fields, many petroleum and nuclear industries, operational research firms, engineering, and pharmaceuticals companies hire mathematicians.
Space science and astronomy fields also hire mathematicians along with IT and insurance agencies. As a Mathematician, you can also work in educational establishments as a postsecondary teacher. If you are good at coding and decoding, encryption, and computer skills, there are opportunities in cybersecurity areas. You can work as a cryptographer or a data security analyst.
