The mathematical sciences are a group of areas of study that include, in addition to Mathematics, those academic disciplines that are primarily mathematical in nature but may not be universally considered subfields of mathematics proper. Statistics, for example, is mathematical in its methods but grew out of scientific observations which merged with inverse probability and grew through applications in the social sciences.
Mathematical sciences work is becoming an increasingly integral and essential component of a growing array of areas of investigation in biology, medicine, social sciences, business, advanced design, climate, finance, advanced materials, and much more. This work involves the integration of mathematics, statistics, and computation in the broadest sense, and the interplay of these areas with areas of potential application; the mathematical sciences are best conceived of as including all these components. These activities are crucial to economic growth, national competitiveness, and national security.
Thus, mathematics is an essential part of the educational system of an advanced society. Indian Society has embraced the knowledge economy and its economic growth rate is one of the highest in the world. India has shown highest level of progress in engineering, space, nuclear, aeronautics and information and communication technologies. The subject of mathematics has played a major role in the development of the country and Manjul Bhargava is a Canadian-American mathematician of Indian origins has won Field Medal which is equivalent to Nobel Prize in mathematics.
In this context, Universities across the country offer Mathematics as a subject at undergraduate and Mathematics as a program at postgraduate level.
M.Sc. (Mathematics) at REVA UNIVERSITY has been designed to meet the human resources needs of existing and futuristic research establishments, industries and academic institutions. The program is designed to produce graduates with higher-order critical, analytical, problem-solving and research skills; ability to think rigorously and independently to meet higher-level expectations of industries, research organization and academic institutions.
The program deals with analysis, algebra, topology, complex analysis, differential equations, discrete Mathematics, mechanics and numerical analysis. Besides, greater emphasis is laid on methods of Mathematics, fluid mechanics, mathematical modelling, graph theory, fuzzy logic, cryptography, operation research and Mathematics of multimedia.
The program acts as a foundation degree and helps to develop critical, analytical and problem-solving skills at first level. The foundation degree makes the graduates employable in scientific organisations and also to assume administrative positions in various types of organisations. Further acquisition of higher-level degrees help the graduates to pursue a career in academics or scientific organisations as a researcher.
The Program Educational Objectives are to prepare the students to:
On completion of this program, a student will be able to:
Students completing M.Sc. in Mathematics will have job opportunities in higher educational institutions, R&D sectors and industries of varied types. They also have opportunities in Government, Public & Private Sectors.
