Combining Years of Industrial Expertise & Academic Capabilities to Deliver Contemporary Courseworks
Growing steadily since its establishment as an independent entity in 2015, the School of Mathematics (SOM) is a dedicated academic unit contributing to the mission and vision of Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology (TIET). School offers two programs at PG level, namely M.Sc. in Mathematics and Computing and M.Sc. in Mathematics. The masters’ programs are designed to build strong foundations in core areas of higher mathematics and to provide extremely strong technical knowledge to the students who would typically take up careers – in academia or in industry. School offers Ph.D. program in various specializations of both pure and applied mathematics. School provides students with experiences that will assist them in achieving their career goal as leaders in mathematics.
The faculty in the School is committed for quality teaching & research in mathematics and its related areas with modern infrastructure and syllabus. Along with the stand alone research in pure mathematics, we also focus on industrial and real life applications of mathematics. Working on cutting edge of the science and technology, our faculty and students are committed to be at par with the academic fertinity and industrial R&D on international level.
As a part of infrastructural project of Department of Science & Technology (DST), Government of India, under FIST funding, a budget of Rs. 54 lakh has been allocated for the setting up of the School’s own library and research lab.
At SOM, we strongly believe in a holistic growth of our affiliates which further fosters a vibrant and sustainable academic ecosystem. The role of mathematics research and education has evolved over the decades. It is imperative to adapt to the changing demands of industry and the society at large by training the next generation of students with modern era skills and competence. The development of skilled employable student graduates is at the heart of what we strive towards on a continuous basis. This includes development of updated curricula on a regular basis as well as continuously updating our laboratory and computing infrastructure. Towards this effect, let me share with you an important milestone achieved by SOM recently in successfully bidding for a Department of Science and Technology (DST-FIST) sponsorship that will be used over the next five years to further modernize our computational laboratory and departmental library facilities.
Currently, we are offering our flagship Masters in Science MSc (Mathematics and Computing) and M.Sc.(Mathematics) programs with the objective of integrating advanced mathematical learning with computing skills. The idea is to prepare graduates who are ready to be absorbed by the booming software industry all along having the extra edge of having a strong mathematical foundation. Within a decade since its commencement, we have had measurable success in terms of placement of our graduates in industry as well as students who have continued their academic profession as PhD scholars in different international universities.
We have a dedicated team of well qualified faculty, all of whom have PhDs from reputed universities in India and abroad, who are constantly pushing the boundaries of cutting edge research and teaching methodologies. Once again, I invite all of you to connect with us and explore the plethora of opportunities that we have to offer to you.
