Department of Mathematics started simultaneously with that of Abdul Wali Khan University Mardan in Feb 2009. The Department initially started M.Sc. in Mathematics and later introduced BS (Hons), M. Phil and PhD programmes. The department intends to introduce M.Sc (Statistics) in near future.
Mathematics has played and is playing a vital role in a rapidly changing world of science and technology. It has developed tremendously in the last century and these developments have further been accelerated by the use of information technology in every walk of life. This motivated to the discovery of various new techniques in mathematics. The modern era of science and technology has proved that not only the natural sciences but the social and administrative sciences have also been developed to the extent that they also need an input of mathematics.
The mission of the Department:
Mathematics is, undoubtedly, essential for nature, life and social sciences. Therefore, the main mission of the Mathematics Department is to offer high-quality instruction and research to all its undergraduate and graduate students to prepare them life-long learners and responsible citizens of the community. Also, the department offers consultations in Statistics and Applied mathematics to other faculties and graduate students.
Aims of the Department
• To convert the department into a mathematical research institute.
• Strengthen the number and quality of PhD faculty (at least 30 PhD doctors).
• To start new programmes in different field of Mathematics such as Mathematical Biology,
Mathematical Finance, Parallel Computing, Economics etc.
• To establish an institute for Fluid Mechanics.
• To establish numerical simulations labs, computing labs in the department.
The department strives not only to teach the main ideas and methods of mathematics but also to build up a student’s mathematical reasoning and analytical skills in a friendly and comfortable environment. As the department offers mathematics courses to students of other degree programs, our mission in this regard, is to make sure that these courses are taught at high standards and meet the needs of these programmes.
Vision Statement of the Department
