Introduction and Overview

The department of Mathematics is one of the inaugural and pioneer departments in the radius of 200 kilometers in Rahim Yar Khan, which has been established at Khwaja Fareed University of Engineering and Information Technology (KFUEIT) in September 2017. The philosophy of department is to educate mathematics in much more interactive and conceptual point of view. Investigations and conceptual learning allow one to see mathematics being created by oneself. Our aim is to provide a new generation of innovative researchers and quality teachers to the nation. We provide mathematics instruction to students in a broad range of undergraduate, graduate academic programs in Mathematics, Engineering, Information Technology, Physics, Chemistry, Business and many other disciplines.

The Master of Science in Mathematics (MSc Mathematics) and Bachelor of Science in Mathematics (BS Mathematics) program at Khwaja Fareed University of Engineering & Information Technology are specially designed for students who are interested to pursue their career in mathematics in order to fulfill demands in the area of science and mathematics after completing FSc & BSc (Two years Bachelor Degree). The MS Mathematics (Master of Science in Mathematics) program is designed to prepare students keeping in view of the modern trends in industry and academia. The mission of the programs is to provide a rigorous introduction to graduate level mathematics by offering a balanced blend of pure and applied mathematics courses. The programs will enable the students to increase their knowledge in the subject, pursue the doctoral studies in their areas of interest and keep on increasing their carrier opportunities in the relevant industry.

Vision & Mission

The vision of mathematics department is to become a hub of mathematics in the region that revives and nourishes the mathematics culture, and generates high caliber individuals who are pivotal to the development of regional economy.

The mission of the mathematics department is to graduate qualified cadres who are equipped with insight and research skills in the field of mathematics and provide learning opportunities of unmatched breadth and depth by providing an environment where students can learn and become competent users of mathematics and mathematical applications. Moreover, the department will contribute to the development of students as mathematical thinkers, enabling them to become lifelong learners, to continue to grow in their chosen professions, and to function as productive citizens.

Scope and Associated Career

Our graduates will find numerous opportunities of working at research and teaching institutes in Pakistan and abroad. Depending on the concentration that a student select during study, various job opportunities are available after degree completion. Some of most visible ones are top academic and industrial research position, Software Development, Education Sector, Consultants and many more.
