The Program

The role and usages of mathematics have increased manifold in the last few decades with the setting in of information revolution which has resulted in substantial changes in several other disciplines also. With the nation-wide thrust on information technology and the need for self-reliance in various important sectors, the scientists and engineers with advanced computing skills are on higher demands. Thus the expectations from mathematics from the point of view of teaching, learning, research and applications have increased manifolds and the skills in computational mathematics are needed more than ever before. Keeping this in mind, the Department of Mathematics JIIT Noida had introduced its M. Tech program in Applied and Computational Mathematics in the year 2008. So far Seven batches have been passed out. The alumni are well placed in various academic and research institutions of repute.

The curriculum and the course contents of the program are designed keeping in mind the interdisciplinary nature of the program. It provides a broad understanding of the different aspects of the pure and applied mathematics on one hand while their computer applications on the other. The lecture-based courses cover a wide spectrum of topics including advanced linear algebra, functional analysis, applied numerical methods, operations research, wavelets and its applications, fractals and chaos, linear statistical models etc. Some branches of mathematics like Number Theory, Wavelets, Fractals, etc. are now part of the main stream. This program is designed to strengthen and to substantially enhance the background and also to instil needed new effective communication skills in mathematics. It would be possible for a student to choose from areas like, Statistics, Operation Research, Numerical Mathematics and Computing. Students are also required to take suitable courses from engineering, science and humanity departments. The lab courses provide necessary training in advanced techniques of software and simulation. Experience and expertise gained in these labs, giving the students lab-based application oriented courses and the use of softwares such as Mathematica, Matlab, Maple, etc., will comprise an important feature of the program. An important component of the programme is its computational science dissertation project work that will be done by the student on any important and emerging topic.

The primary objective of this programme is to equip the students with advanced topics in Applied Mathematics; Computer Science and Advanced Computing Methods; Simulation and Modeling so that they can efficiently deal with the problems faced by industry and other sectors through knowledge of mathematics and scientific computation.

On the successful completion of this program the candidates will be better suited for the

  • Jobs in the software industry and in research laboratories (like ISRO, DRDO, NAL, etc.)
  • Academic career in institutions of science and technology.
  • Pursuing research leading to a Ph. D. Degree.
  • Taking up consultancy and special projects with industry and corporations.
