Mathematics is study of numbers, equations, projections, calculations in linear, 2 and 3 dimensions. Mathematics is the basis of all physical and social sciences and has applications in all spheres of life including engineering, statistics, finance, business, medicine, biology and environment management. The students are exposed to subjects like Calculus, Modern algebra, geometry, differential equations, operational research, etc. An undergraduate degree in mathematics opens up the scopes in the field of engineering, business studies, defence, medical sciences, insurance, research and similar fields.
B.Sc. Mathematics is a 3-year program spread over six semesters. The students are expected to earn a minimum of 120 credits from in six semesters. The students who take up studies in life sciences will get practical experience in molecular and cellular life.
The University undertakes a choice based credit system laid down by University Grant Commission (UGC). Students choose Core and elective subjects in Mathematics. They are expected to choose two additional subjects from Physics, Chemistry, Electronics, Business studies and Computers Science. The students also expected to complete four skill enhancement and ability enhancement courses like English and Environmental Sciences.
A continuous evaluation system is followed to assess understanding of the subject. Internal assessment shall be conducted through midterm examinations, assignments and class tests. End of the term Final semester theory and practical examinations are conducted by the external examiners. The minimum qualification for enrolment for the program is qualifying Senior Secondary School examination. Lateral entry in second, third is allowed for the program after appropriate credit transfer.
