Manipal Institute of Technology launches B.Tech in Mathematics and Computing

Manipal Institute of Technology

The Department of Mathematics in collaboration with the Department of Data Science and Computer Applications has created and launched the B. Tech in Mathematics and Computing undergraduate programme at Manipal Institute of Technology, a constituent unit of Manipal, MAHE, one of India’s top higher education institutions.

The topics from mathematical, computer science, and statistical applications were combined to create this programme. It was introduced by Professor Arthur T. Benjamin during his visit to MAHE on March 3, 2023, and will be put into use starting with the 2023–2024 academic year.

This program’s objective is to provide graduates with both theoretical understanding and hands-on experience in scientific, statistical, and mathematical computing. The main focus of this programme is to give students a solid foundation in classical topics to get them ready for research institutes and programmes both in India and abroad. To prepare graduates for the workplace and help them land lucrative jobs at reputable companies, the programme places an emphasis on both basic subjects and particular themes.

Dr. (Cdr) Anil Rana, Director of Manipal Institute of Technology, MAHE, commented on the introduction of the new programme, saying, “Through this new programme, we intend to provide training in the application of mathematics to a wide range of situations. This programme was created as a result of the realisation that both contemporary scientific research and technological advancement require the use of profound mathematics. By opening positions with the Indian Statistical Services Commission (ISSC), National Sample Survey Organisation (NSSO), Ministry of Statistics & Programme Implementation (MOSPI), Union Public Service Commission (UPSC), and Statistical Officer (SO) in States Public Service Commission, among others, we hope that this course will assist students in expanding their career prospects.

Key features of the courses:

  • Duration of the program: 8 semesters
  • The graduates will gain theoretical knowledge of and practical training in mathematical, statistical, and scientific computing
  • Open Electives from various departments across the institute during 5th, 6th, and 7th semesters
