The B.Math.(Hons.) degree programme offers comprehensive instruction in basic mathematics along with rudimentary courses in probability, Statistics, Computing and Physics. It is so designed that on successful completion, the students would be able to pursue higher studies in the areas of Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Science, Mathematical Physics or take up a career in applications of Mathematics. The total duration of the B.Math.(Hons.) programme is three years.


The M. Math. Programme offers advanced level training in Mathematics. On successful completion of the course, students would be able to pursue a research/academic career in Mathematics. Depending on the choice of the optional subjects, the students would also be able to work in the fields of Probability Theory and Theoretical Computer Science. The total duration of the M. Math. Programme is two years.

M.S. (LIS)

This is an advanced programme in Library and Information Science with special emphasis on ‎applications of Information Technology. On completion of the programme, the students will be able to ‎pursue an academic career or take up responsible positions in various private and public sector ‎organizations in Library and Information field.

M.S. (QMS)

This is a two-year programme in Quality Management and its applications with a special emphasis on Quantitative Methods. It also includes Dissertation in the third semester and a live Project work in the fourth semester under the direct guidance of the faculty.

Students aspiring to undertake this programme will enhance their career options by gaining the contemporary knowledge and perspective required of Quality Analysts, Quality Managers and those who are responsible for one or more aspects of quality improvement.

Ph.D. Program

The centre runs doctoral programs in:

Computer Science at System Science and Informatics Unit;

Development Studies at the Economic Analysis Unit (EAU);

Library and Information Science at Documentation Research and Training Centre; and

Mathematics and Statistics at the Statistics and Mathematics Unit.

Part-time Certificate Course

This course is intended to provide intensive training in the theory and practice of Statistical Quality Control (SQC) to working executives. Emphasis is on equipping the students with the basic practical skills in SQC approach with sufficient theory to understand the principles involved and to develop in them the power of systematic thinking, practical approach and exposition.

The course is held twice a year: sessions starting in January and July. Classes are scheduled on Saturday/Sundays and runs spanning a period of around 9 months.
