Our programmes lay emphasis on current developments in mathematical sciences including those in interdisciplinary areas. Every year at least 3 to 4 students from the Department secure ranks in the top 10 ranks in the GATE. In the last 5 years, more than 50 students have qualified for the CSIR-UGC Junior Research Fellowship/NET. Most of these students join the Ph.D. programme either at our University or at institutions like TIFR, CMI, IMSc, ISI's and IIT's. The Department runs a very successful and rigorous Ph.D. programme. In the last 20 years all our Ph.D. students have held CSIR-UGC/NBHM fellowships.
