Dear Students & Parents,

Welcome to Dr. Vishwanath Karad MIT World Peace University, School of Mathematics and Statistics, Pune.

Carl Friedrich Gauss one of the greatest mathematicians, is said to have claimed: “Mathematics is the queen of the sciences and number theory is the queen of Mathematics.”

Mathematics is the heart of thousands of different careers and underpins almost every discipline. Employers greatly value the strong analytical and problem-solving skills that Mathematics graduates have. A degree in mathematics open doors to various careers like finance, medical technology, teaching, software development, research and many more. Department of Mathematics was established in the year 1983 together with the establishment of MIT, Pune which from 2017 is known as the School of Mathematics and Statistics.

The school offers postgraduate programs in mathematics and statistics, as well as a doctoral research program for highly motivated students looking to pursue an academic or industrial career in Mathematics or Statistics. The department has introduced a new Bachelor of Science (BSc. CMS) program in computational Mathematics and Statistics. Apart from that we also offer courses starting from basic undergraduate Mathematics to specialized courses on advanced Mathematics and Statistics for BTech, MTech and B.Sc.(Computer Science) students. The curriculum of all the programs is rigorous as per international standards. We believe in holistic development of students and therefore yoga, peace study and rural immersion program are important key features of all our programs. Our unique MIT-WPU Teaching Methodology includes MOOC courses, Industry and Teaching internships, two teacher method and specialized lab courses.

The faculty members and research scholars are engaged in research covering some of the frontline topics of Mathematics and Statistics, collaborating with reputed academicians in India and abroad. There are groups in the department engaged in different areas of pure and applied mathematics including Algebra, Analysis, Lattice Theory, Combinatorics, Graph Theory, Matroid Theory, Discrete Mathematics and Statistics.

MIT-WPU believes in ‘Career Services’. This includes placements, higher studies, internships, entrepreneur support as well as career guidance and advice. We at MIT-WPU believe that there are multiple facets to each individual and that we must foster them all for their progress.
