is one of them.
The Department of Mathematical Sciences offers three-degree programs: a four-year
undergraduate program leading to BS degree in Mathematics, two-year postgraduate program leading

initiated in Fall-2014 and PhD program in Mathematics was initiated in Fall-2019. Whilst BS
Mathematics is newly introduced by the Department at the university. The first intake of BS
Mathematics is being taken in Fall-2023.
