Mathematics is one of the oldest academic subject. It has developed greatly during the last two centuries and still a massive developments and research is being done in this subject. It is considered to be a basic key in the learning and understanding of science and engineering subjects in general. The advent of computers and data acquisition facilities has stretched the limits of what is possible in mathematics to all branches of human endeavor. Mathematics is one of the most mature and well developed discipline of the basic sciences. The study of mathematics is not only exciting, but important. Mathematics have an opportunity to make a lasting contribution to the society by helping to solve problems in such diverse fields as astronomy, medicine, biology, management, economics, computer sciences, physics, psychology, food sciences, agriculture, earth sciences, engineering and social sciences etc.
The department of mathematics was established in October, 2013 and it is now one of the pioneer department at AUST. The department has excellent connections with many other disciplines within the university and provide services to the entire campus both at under-graduate and graduate levels to enhance the quantitative and mathematical skills of the students. Beside this, the department is currently running BS (Hons) and MSc program in mathematics successfully. The objectives of department are to produce qualified and competent graduates which meet the requirements of a developed and a civilized nation. Having highly qualified experienced and young talented faculty members, the department aims to establish and promote AUST as a leading institution for teaching and research in mathematical sciences both at national and international level.
