The department organizes technical symposia at national and international levels at regular intervals. Apart from stressing on consistent and good academic performance, the department encourages participation in co-curricular and extracurricular activities to bring out the latent talents in its students. The students are provided with ample opportunities to improve their organizational skills and group dynamics.

About the Programme

The MSc Applied Mathematics programme was started in the year 1975. The objective of this programme is to acquaint the students with various principles of Mathematics and train them to build & administer mathematical models to the problems in science and technology. This programme is also designed to expose the students to the various development and the applications of software, catering to the needs of the industries and R&D sectors. The programme is a perfect blend of Pure and Applied Mathematics with supporting laboratory courses to strengthen the knowledge of the students Programme follows meticulously planned curriculum based on Choice Based Credit System, updated regularly to meet the challenging requirements of the industry. The programme comprises a mini-project and a major project. The mini - project is to be done during the summer vacation at the end of the second semester. A six month major project is taken in the final semester at research institutions or software industries, thereby enabling them to have an opportunity to work in challenging environment. MSc Applied Mathematics alumni are well placed in top - notch industries, reputed academic institutions and research labs.


Candidates for admission to the M.Sc. Applied Mathematics are required to have a pass in B.Sc. (Mathematics / Mathematics with Computer Applications / Applied Science) or an examination of any other University or authority recognized by Anna University equivalent there to. Candidates, who have appeared for the final semester examination in April/May of the academic year 2019-2020, are also eligible to apply (However, such candidates if selected for admission will have to produce the final examination mark sheet and the proof of having passed the degree at the time of admission).

Shortlisted candidates with an excellent academic record in undergraduate examination will be called for online video call counselling to identify the spark and the commitment of the applicant to study 2 year Master programme (M.Sc Applied Mathematics) at PSG College of Technology.

Schedule of the counselling will be intimated to the applicant through the application's registered email.

Candidates from other Universities will have to provide an Eligibility Certificate issued by Anna University, Chennai.

A call for Interview does not however confer any right of admission.

How to Apply

Application can be made only online by entering all the particulars including marks along with on-line payment through the Net banking/Credit card/Debit card.
All dates are subject to change based on university examination results.

Dr. Balasubrmanian Narasimhan
Senior Research Scientist Stanford University, USA.
M.Sc. AM (1982 - 1984)

I came of age mathematically in the two years I took to complete the MSc programme. Not only did I benefit from the discussions with caring professors, I spent a lot of time wandering the book and journal stacks in the PSG tech library. This provided a broad background that subsequently helped me in my research career.

Prof. U. Dinesh Kumar
Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore
M.Sc. AM (1988-1990)

It is an ideal programme for research in Mathematics and its application in computer fields. It broadens the scope for research. It cultivates decision making and analytical skills which helped me grow as a Data Scientist.

Mr. N. S. Babu
Director - Products
Navi Technologies Pvt Ltd, Bengaluru.
M.Sc. AM (1992-1994)

To me good mathematics skill and knowledge creates strong foundation for analytical ability and problem solving skills. In turn, this helps to develop excellent programming and computing skills to solve business problems applying latest computing technologies. This programme, Applied Mathematics, offers right combination of mathematics and computer science subjects the industry looking for.

Mr. Kannan Thangam
Vice President, GoldmanSachs, USA.
M.Sc. AM (1993 -1995)

The proficiency of time obtained during the Applied Mathematics programme is exceedingly transferable which opens opportunities for the career in industry or for further advanced study in diverse areas ranging from engineering, energy to finance or scientific research. The combination of the applied nature of the mathematics that is taught, with the masters level of this programme, makes this qualification highly attractive to industries.

Dr. Suganya Eliot
Research Scientist in Portland House Groups Limited,
Melbourne, Australia.
M.Sc AM (2001-2003)

Applied Mathematics gives a strong understanding of Modeling and Mathematical thinking, which are very important for quantitative reasoning. Applied Mathematics takes mathematical techniques and ideas and uses them to explore and predict the behaviour of physical, biological, technological, industrial and other fields. Hence, Applied mathematics skills allow us to work and contribute in a wide range of disciplines such as Engineering, Finance, Economics etc.

Dr. V. Natarajan
Post doctoral fellow, University of Bristol, UK.
M.Sc. AM (2008 - 2010)

MSc Applied Mathematics programme is perfectly structured in three main aspects: fundamental mathematics essentials, applied mathematics and computer applications thus bridging the gap between pure and applied mathematics, allowing a student to adjust well to a challenging industrial environment.

Amrutha Preeth
Associate Digital Innovation Engineer – Data Science, Buckman Laboratories, Chennai
M.Sc. AM (2016-2018)

Being the part of the prestigious college and department has nurtured me to an independent individual. The technicalities and the emerging technologies I learnt from the programme has supported all through out my career. The strong foundation in mathematics and complete knowledge in programming is always an aid to my professional day to day life.
