Some people feel that Mathematics problems have no real use in life. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Mathematics is very important in our lives and without realizing it, we use mathematical ideas in solving daily problems. The concepts of mathematics govern everything around us, and without a good understanding of them, one could encounter significant hurdles in life. Studying Mathematics helps one to develop skills in logical thinking, problem-solving and decision-making, which are valued by employers across many job sectors.
A good mathematician reduces any system to a set of equations which then is solved based on the constraints placed by the system. One can pursue his/her PhD in a challenging area like financial research or algorithm development in Communications or signal processing and achieve remarkable success. Engineering fields like AI, machine learning, cryptography and communications require mathematicians. Video game developers and computer animators are just two examples among many that use calculus.
show more... show less...Mainly we employ chalk-talk method as it gives time to the students to assimilate what has been discussed. We focus on Research based pedagogy and also encourage flipped class techniques. We believe that Mathematics learning takes place by individuals constructing it themselves in their mind with proper guidance. Cooperative learning is one of the better methods that helps students to master the topic which is encouraged during practical sessions.
A degree in Mathematics opens lots of doors. Employers trust Mathematics majors for their smartness and ability to learn new abstract ideas. Insurance companies, engineering firms, software companies, the FBI, NSA, CIA, and schools all need and value people with expertise in mathematics. The pay ranges, job security is usually excellent, level of challenge and interest is usually good to excellent. Mathematics is a multi-faceted subject that emphasizes logic and encourages innovation. The ability to apply mathematical concepts and principles can be useful in virtually any industry. There are many options after B.Sc./M.Sc. few of which is listed below:
One can choose to pursue research (become a scientist) in his/her area of interest in Mathematics. And if one chooses research, he/she could go into the teaching sector as well. Research Institutes like TIFR Mumbai, IMSc Chennai, Harish Chandra Research Institute Allahabad, IISER Pune etc. offer good quality research for interested students.
After BSc Mathematics one can apply for M.Sc. enabling him/her to face the NET exam to become an assistant Professor. Attractive salary and lots of research are the two major incentives to the candidate.
Banking is another sector that one can get into with Mathematics.
If one loves data and Mathematics, actuarial sciences could be a great field for it.
If one wants to work in the private sector, one can look at these profiles.
Mathematics degree could also help one to work in the military sector. Scientists are always required to work with military and development (DRDO, ISRO, NAL, SETS, etc.). One could also join the navy as a Commissioned Officer in their education or logistics branch.
