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.

As per the Government Order, this programme is equivalent to M.Sc (Mathematics) for the purpose of employment in public services and higher studies. ( Click here to view the GO )

    Applied Mathematics is one of the finest course in the PSG College of Technology.In TamilNadu only few colleges having this course, were many unaware of it. The "Applied Mathematics" course seems to have only maths to deal with, but its not as all think of it, the course actually deals with other technology too especially computer oriented languages,programming,etc. Even myself thought the same once I heard the course name. Later I felt its a unique course with the combination of Maths and Computer syllabus which adhere to the current technology and providing the practice to the students by experienced staffs.
