Department of Applied Mathematics:
Department of Applied Mathematics of The Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda, has been recognized as one of the most active and distinguished department in India.The department was established in the year 1973, in the Faculty of Technology and Engineering which is located in the central part of the Vadodara city. The M. S. University of Baroda, is most favouritelocation for study of Mathematics as well as Applied Mathematics. The Department encourages its staff and students, not only to study Mathematics for its own sake, but also to explore the applications of Mathematics in science, engineering and industry.
Besides teaching in Under Graduate and Post Graduate Courses in various branches of engineering in the Faculty as well as in Pharmacy Faculty, Department of Applied Mathematics is offering number of post graduate degree programs like:
- Ph. D. in Applied Mathematics.
- M.Sc. in Applied Mathematics with specialization in Industrial Mathematics,(2 Year programme).
- Post Graduate Diploma in Computer Applications(PGDCA),(1 Year programme).
- M.Sc. in Financial Mathematics.(2 Years Self-finance programme under HPP)
- Part-Time Post Graduate Diploma in Computer Applications(3 semesters self-finance evening programme under HPP)
However, the Department is uniquely identified because of its intense involvement in Industrial Mathematics. The Department initiated collaborative projects with Industries in and around Vadodara, since 1983 and since then Department has interacted with number of Industries like ONGC, ABB, Appolo Tyres, Patwa Kinariwala, Metal Powers, Mumbai, Jyoti Ltd. etc. and team of this Department along with Expert from industry have made tremendous efforts to solve this industrial problems up to the satisfaction level of each industry. In this direction Since 1994 department, in collaboration with Industrial Mathematics Group (IMG) of Department of Mathematics, I. I.T. Bombay and Oxford centre for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, U.K., has organized number of National and International Modelling weeks and Study group meetings on Live Problems of Industrial Mathematics.All these activities truly Justify that the department is recognized at the national level as one of the few departments offering professional courses in Industrial as well as inFinancial Mathematics.
On research front, Various topics are explored intensively by faculty and students in the Department of Applied Mathematics,which include Industrial Mathematics, Bio-Mathematics, Relativity Theory, Tribology, Soft Computing, Fractional Differential Equations, Optimization, Numerical Methods for Partial Differential Equations, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Neural Networks and Fuzzy Analysis, Wavelets, Signal and Image Processing, Control Theory and Fourier Analysis.
The Department has well established three computer laboratories with latest computer facilities. Masters students with an interest in applications can have free access to these laboratories and have the opportunity to work on their own problems of current interest. Department is giving enhanced training by giving compulsory Seminar/Modelling Seminar to the M.Sc.(Applied mathematics) students in which group of students are preparing write-up on latest areas of Applied Mathematics under the supervision of teachers of the department and finally presenting the same during University examination.
M.Sc.(Industrial Mathematics)/M.Sc.(Financial Mathematics)/D.C.A. students are getting guidance and motivation to work for their project work with some industry/organization. Department is also motivating and guiding Interdisciplinary collaborative Research work and M.Sc./D.C.A. Project, with faculty members from various departments of our university like: Micro Biology, Economics, Textile Engineering, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Applied Physics, Computer Science.
