M.Sc. Mathematics provides advanced research skills and provides in-depth knowledge of reasoning and problem-solving skills to the students. It incorporates the foundation of mathematical thinking and teaches both pure and applied mathematics to the core. Students will be taught core mathematical subjects which includes probability theory, theoretical computer science, algebra, number theory, algebraic geometry, global analysis, dynamical systems, differential equations and many more. People who have a knack for mathematics and want to make a career out of it should pursue this course. If one has an analytical ability and can carry out complex activities with an applicative approach, they should go for this course. The course teaches applications of mathematical principles so that students can adapt to collecting big data and analyze those using different tools and methods. The curriculum includes projects, assignments, analyzing a large amount of numerical data and seminars. It also includes designing surveys and experiments. The evaluation of a student is done through an Internal Assessment and External Assessment.
