Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) in Mathematics and Computing

The 4-year programme, B.Tech. in Mathematics and Computing, is a unique programme and the first of its kind in the country. The curriculum for this program is designed to meet the need of sophisticated mathematics in modern scientific investigations and technological innovations. The programme has three components: mathematics, computing and financial engineering which are perfectly blended so that the strong mathematical and analytical components that are in-built in the curriculum form the basis on which the technological aspects of computing and finance are developed. Consequently, the programme, which is run by a team of committed faculty as instructors, produces a group of students with multiple skills in mathematics, computer science and financial engineering.

Though the programme is relatively new, its success has already been manifested through internships and job placements, and admissions for higher studies at premier institutions in the last three years. Further, I am happy to state that many of the students of current batch have completed internship in industry, academia and financial institutions, both within India and abroad. The students are admitted through JEE.
