M.Sc (Mathematics) - Applied Mathematics

DETAILS

M.Sc Mathematics with specialization in Applied Mathematics focuses on the innovative creation and imaginative use of mathematical concepts to present and solve problems over the various field of natural sciences, engineering sciences, medical sciences and emerging fields such as data sciences and artificial intelligence. The Applied mathematics program is designed to provide students an increased knowledge and comprehensive understanding of mathematics, particularly in algorithms, fluid mechanics, differential equations, probability and stochastics, and optimisation. 

The full term of two years and the syllabus for the Applied Mathematics program is divided into four semesters. This Master’s program in Applied Mathematics is also an ideal preparation for various PhD programs in basic sciences and engineering.

UPES’ curriculum framework is holistic in its overall structure and yet focuses on the individual need of the student to discover, experience, explore and challenge. Along with the core subject, students have the option to choose from subject-focused specialisations. They are also allowed to choose minor/exploratory subject from other schools at UPES that are: School of Engineering, School of Computer Science, School of Law, School of Business, School of Health Sciences, School of Design, School of Modern Media, and School of Liberal Studies.

Further, based on the multifaceted needs of the global workplace and evolving lifestyles, the curriculum offers Signature and Life-Skills courses through School for Life. To round off this learning experience, students are required to do mandatory internships in the social sector, government/public sector, and industry. The combinations available for students to pick and choose from are endless, ensuring both depth and width of knowledge.

PEO-1: Students will have significant opportunities in various service domains at national and international level, and can work as scientist, analyst, quality controller in academic and research organizations. 

PEO-2: Students will have leadership quality to handle all kind of circumstances in diversities by providing interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary learning environment. 

PEO-3: Students will be continuous learner to learn and adopt new skills and techniques to overcome the problem related with new technologies. 

PEO4: Students will be able to formulate, investigate and analyze scientifically real life problems along with ethical attitude, which works in multidisciplinary team. 

PSO-1:Understand the advanced mathematical concepts and applications in the field of algebra, analysis, computational techniques, optimization, differential equations and engineering. 

PSO-2:Demonstrate advanced understanding of techniques in algebra, analysis, computational techniques, optimization, differential equations, and engineering to analyze and design algorithms solving variety of problems related to real life problems. 

PSO-3:Execute new ideas in research and developments in mathematics through seminar and dissertation.
