Mathematics is the language of the Universe and the Queen of all sciences. Statistics is the grammar of Data science.
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at IIT Tirupati established in August 2019 offers mathematical, statistical and computing courses for all engineering disciplines of IIT Tirupati at Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Research levels.
The Department has young, energetic, dynamic and committed faculty members with teaching and research experience from the academy and industries in various topics of Mathematics and Statistics. Our faculty members have expertise in analysis, algebra, number theory, linear algebra, ill-posed problems, scientific computing, differential equations, numerical analysis, numerical linear algebra, high-performance computing, statistical finance, statistical signal processing, environmental statistics, machine learning, design of experiments, and generalized linear models.
The Department currently offers M. Sc (Mathematics and Statistics) and PhD programmes. The Department is active in research areas of pure and applied mathematics, industrial mathematics and statistics, machine learning and data sciences.
Our M. Sc programme is designed in such a way that students could join the industry or academia to choose their careers. The major scope of this program is to introduce the basic principles behind pure mathematics on a par with statistics and then enlighten them with advanced theory and practice. This program contains a few advanced statistics and mathematical elective courses including machine learning, statistical finance, biostatistics, statistical simulation, mathematical modelling and a few computational mathematics courses. Apart from this, the students will acquire a good knowledge of R, numerical analysis with scientific computing and stochastic processes. At the end of this master’s degree, our students will be in mastered both mathematics and statistics and could get an opportunity across the globe to go for research studies or to choose their career in academia and/or industry.
Practices with high-quality research and education
Our department faculty has more than 30 good quality publications in the short span of 4 years.
The department offers PhD programmes in mathematics and statistics. Currently, 12 students are pursuing active research in the field of mathematics and 6 students are actively conducting research in statistics.
Every year, the department actively conducts a winter workshop during the month of December.
The aim of this workshop is to train and enlighten the young minds of India from the basic needs to the recent development of the respective research field with the help of experts from top institutes of India.
The participants are selected across India with travel and accommodation support.
