Mathematics is considered as one of the academic disciplines of the basic sciences. It is the basis for learning and understanding the other science subjects. This is why it is called “Mother of All Sciences”.

Mathematics can contribute in all branches of Engineering, industry, Management, Metrology, Teaching, and Research. We believe that, if we have good and CompetentMathematicians, we can bring revolution in our Education, Industry and latest Modern Technologies.

The aim of the department of mathematics and statistics is to pursue excellence in teaching and research by developing appropriate curricula and teaching practices, acquiring highly talented faculty and providing an environment conducive to teaching and learning.

Presently, Department is offering MSc, MPhil and Ph.D. programs and from Fall Semester, 2018, the department is also offering BS-4Year Program in mathematics. The department provides service to the entire university, from undergraduate students to graduate students in mathematics courses and other departments who need to upgrade the quantitative and mathematical skills of their students.

Teaching and Research faculty:

Department of mathematics has well qualified and experienced faculty. It also has access to foreign faculty members through the HEC foreign faculty hiring program. The faculty at the department of mathematics is not limited to a narrow range of mathematical specialties; the specializations of the faculty are spread throughout the mathematical spectrum, so students can inquire about any mathematical topic.

Career in Mathematics

Mathematics has a wide spectrum and variety of important applications, there is, therefore a constant demand for well-trained mathematicians in a wide range of career choices. The academic programs are designed in such a way that they meet the international standards and also provide a wide variety of jobs, in teaching, Industry, Accounting, Research, Organizations, such as, PIEAS, PAEC, SUPARCO, AQ Khan labs, PIA, Meteorology, etc.
