This is a five-year programme that introduces students to various areas in Mathematics and its applications. The programme trains students with varied backgrounds and career aims by offering a solid foundation in mathematics. This programme provides students with the opportunity to explore and nurture interdisciplinary interests by allowing them to take courses in other disciplines of science and engineering. In the final year of the programme, each student undertakes a project in an advanced topic, under the supervision of a faculty member. This is aimed at helping students make a well-informed decision about pursuing a career in academia, or otherwise.


Students enrolled in this programme undergo rigorous training in traditional areas of mathematics such as algebra, analysis, and topology, before exploring a specialized topic of interest from a broad spectrum of areas.
