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 May/June of the academic year 2021-2022, 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 counselling in college campus 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.

M.Sc Applied mathematics is a fascinating study of mathematical and computer science. It equipped me to understand complex models in real life and in software engineering. The tools and techniques learned in Applied mathematics are readily useful for day to day jobs. Be it future in mathematics or in software engineering, we have a unique advantage in knowing the best of both worlds. As much as learning rigorous mathematics is necessary, don't lose the fun in making good friends, working as a team and getting things done. In the end, that is what matters most. We enjoyed it and were successful because we worked as a whole class and had fun at it.

M.Sc. AM (2019–2021)

The application of mathematics to actual concerns is the focus of this subject. This major is a fantastic decision I've made. It sits at the intersection of theoretical academics and technical science. It greatly aids me in developing mathematical models to address physical and theoretical issues. We developed the greatest amount of growth both in mathematical and computational with an enormous quantity of information in both theoretical and practical with the support of magnificent professors’ direction. And we accomplish a lot thanks to the tremendous assistance of all faculty members who have extensive exposure both on and off the PSG Tech campus. All of my classmates are standing in their own uniqueness as they identify their strengths through this incredible course.

M.Sc. AM (2008-2010)

I joined PSG Tech with a dream of getting a doctorate. I completed my BSc Applied sciences and joining MSc Applied Mathematics at PSG Tech was one of the best decisions I have made. The course prepared me for my future. I did my research at NIT Calicut in AI based stock market decision making. The MSc program made me a versatile person balancing intellect both in Mathematics and Computer Science. The result being able to teach linear algebra and data structures for BTech Computer Science Engineering. The best foundation for the future of a person who loves both Math and technology equally. MSc Applied Mathematics will equip you with strong foundations in both areas. The course under the brand PSG Tech is always a treasure. My batch mates are also proud scientists, professors and IT professionals.
