About the School

The School of Mathematics and Statistics was a part of the School of Mathematics and Computer/Information sciences, as a department which was established in February 1978 with Prof. M. Venkata Raman, formerly Head, Department of mathematics, Madurai University, as the first dean of the school. The Department of Mathematics and Statistics was upgraded to School of Mathematics and Statistics on 22nd January 2013.  Currently there are 18 faculty members and four adjunct faculty with research specialization cutting across the broad areas of Algebra, Analysis, Geometry, Number theory, Applied mathematics, Statistics and Operation Research. 

 
We have a distinguished faculty which has research collaborations with other prestigious institutes in India and abroad. Some reputed institutions visited by our faculty are ICTP (Italy), Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton (USA), Warwick University (UK), Weizman Institute (Israel), Technion- Israel Institute of Technology (Israel), The Center for Nuclear Studies, Grenoble, France, among others. We also have research collaborations with other leading research institutes like TIFR, IMSc., ISI and IISc. We have also entered into an MoU with Indian Statistical Institute, to enhance mutual visits and collaborative research work. 
 
The school has been able to receive recognition from various funding agencies. DST has selected this school under its FIST (Funds for Infrastructure in Science and Technology) (Level ll) scheme. This grant is to support research in areas under Cryptology, Modelling & Simulation and Dynamical Systems. The school has also been chosen by the UGC for support under COSIST (Committee for Strengthening Infrastructure in Science & Technology) programme. It is also a recipient of the Special Assistance Programme (SAP) of the UGC. The National Board of Higher Mathematics, (NBHM) has recognized our library as a regional library of the NBHM. And thus provides library grant each year for subscribing journals in Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics.
 
Our teaching is oriented towards preparing the students to go for research in Mathematics/Statistics. Thus the students who join here get a strong background in mathematics at the M.Sc. level. Consequently students of this school consistently perform well in examinations or interviews for research fellowships in various prestigious institutes in India. Because of the through training that students receive here, they are also highly sought after in the job market even with their M.Sc. degree. Students find it a privilege to be here because of the academic environment and the facilities they have here. Of course our's is a very pleasant and a beautiful campus! 
  
Our Ph.D. students also receives post doctoral fellowships in other reputed institutes in the country or abroad. Many of them (click here to see our alumni list) have excelled in their careers in various organizations within the country and abroad.
