The Department of Applied Mathematics was started as a Department of the Bharathiar University during June 2008. The Department aims to train people who are Oriented towards research and teaching in advanced areas of Applied Mathematics and its strategy is to promote development out of subjects of current excellence into exciting new areas of Applied Mathematics, whenever the opportunity arises.
Research activities in the Department have covered the various Fields in Applied Mathematics. The Department aims to carry out research of world-class excellence in important areas of Applied Mathematics and for advancing research collaborations both Nationally and Internationally. The Department is strong in many areas, particularly Fluid Dynamics, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Magnetohydrodynamics, Ferro fluids and Numerical Techniques.
The faculty of the Department collaborates with strong groups nationally and internationally and participates in various projects and programmes.They have research collaborations and communications with the faculty of the distinguished institutions such as DRDL Hyderabad, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Madras, IISC Bangalore, Technical University, Berlin, Germany, University of Baltimore, USA, University of Maryland, USA, University of West Indies, Doshisha University Japan and Cambridge University, UK, Max Planck Institute, Bremen, Germany and University of Regina, Canada.
The Department is offering M.Sc Mathematics with Computer Applications course with a motivation to bring out
recent developments in Applied Mathematics and as well as to provide good knowledge in the Computer oriented
subjects. The course also provides opportunity for the students to know about the direct applications of Mathematics
in several fields of practical interest and to do further research in Applied Mathematics and write codes
and computer algorithms for dealing with several physical systems.
The Department offers M.Phil. and Ph.D research programs in Applied Mathematics of recent interest.
