Maths dept

Department of Mathematics at IIT Kharagpur was established in 1951. It is one of the earliest department of IIT Kharagpur. Since its inception, this department has been actively engaged in teaching and research in various disciplines of Mathematical Sciences. Department offers various courses related to pure mathematics and computer science. Graduates from this department have proved their excellence in both academia and industry.


Department of Mathematics offers many courses related to pure mathematics , applied mathematics and computer science. It offers degree in 6 programs carried out by department.

M.Sc(5 yr) Mathematics and Computing[edit]

In order to cater to the needs of producing computer software professionals with strong foundation in mathematical analysis, logic and discrete mathematical structures, 5-Year M.Sc. program in Mathematics and Computing was started replacing the 5-year Integrated M.Sc. program in Mathematics (through the relentless effort of Prof. G. P. Bhattacharjee) to train bright students in the field of Computer Science with strong mathematical background. Curriculum for this course includes intensive mathematics and computer science related disciplines. Admission to this course is done on basis of IIT-JEE ranking. This is one of the most prestigious program and has been tremendously successful in placements of it's graduate in both academia and industry.

M.Sc. Statistics and Informatics (upto 2008 admissions)[edit]

The purpose of this new courses on Statistics and Informatics is primarily to prepare the students with in-depth knowledge of various branches of Statistics together with applications using modern tools of Informatics .After successful completion of the course, they may be holding positions in various companies dealing with IT, finance, bioinforamtics, medical informatics, research and development organizations, etc. The course is also designed to prepare students for further graduate work at the Ph.D. level, which in turn prepares students for research level careers in Statistics whether in industry, government, or academia.

M.Sc.(2 yr) - Mathematics (upto 2008 admissions)[edit]

2-Year M.Sc. programme in Mathematics was also introduced from the session 1999-2000. This course is designed to train the graduates from various universities and colleges for taking up advance studies in different areas of Pure and Applied Mathematics, Statistics, and Operations Research or taking up jobs in government / private organizations

M.Sc.(2 yr) - Statistics and Informatics (upto 2008 admissions)[edit]

The purpose of this new courses on Statistics and Informatics is primarily to prepare the students with in-depth knowledge of various branches of Statistics together with applications using modern tools of Informatics.

M.Sc. Ph.D. Dual Degree - Mathematics (with effect from 2009 admissions)[edit]

M. Tech. Computer Science & Data Processing[edit]

The successful students of this new Postgraduate programm are getting suitable job offers from various R and D organizations and software companies.

Research Projects[edit]

Intensive research in several fields of mathematics and computer science is going on in this department. Research Project spans pure mathematics , applied mathematics , quantum mechanics , algorithms ,graph theory etc.
