Mathematics & Statistics

Department of Mathematics is a constituent department of the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Sciences (FEAS). Mathematics is one of the oldest academic disciplines of the basic sciences. It is considered the basis for learning and understanding the science subjects. This is why it is called “Mother of All Sciences”. Mathematicians can contribute in diverse fields, such as in all Basic Sciences, all branches of Engineering, Industry, Management, and Metro logy in Teaching and Research. We believe that if we have good and Competent Mathematicians, we can bring revolution in our Education, Industry, and the latest Modern Technologies. The department endeavors to educate its students by providing them exposure to real-life problems, and inculcating in them a problem-solving approach. They are encouraged to explore, solve problems, break new ground, and cultivate leadership qualities. The department aims to establish and promote Riphah as a leading University for teaching and research in Mathematical Sciences both within Pakistan and Internationally.

Aims & Objectives

The importance of Basic Sciences in Universities is like a life-saving drug. Basic Sciences are essential for proper understanding the technical subjects, promoting research work, widening the vision for the future, and enhancing the quality and authenticity of Sciences.

The subjects of Basic Sciences: Mathematics, Physics, Statistics, and Economics, play a vital role in the development of a Country. We intend to produce competent, motivated, and socially responsible Mathematicians, Physicists, Statisticians, and Economists so that they can build good traditions through education and participate actively in the development of our country.

It is our objective to promote educational “Jihad” to establish an ethically motivated, committed, hardworking, knowledgeable, and sensible society.


The department aims to establish and promote Riphah as a leading University for teaching and research in Mathematical Sciences both within Pakistan and Internationally.

Statistics conceive pragmatic solutions in the presence of uncertainty. Think critically – particularly with respect to conceiving multiple explanations for observed phenomena (this is key in the understanding of most statistical concepts e.g. statistical testing, inference, design, model construction and diagnostics, etc.), and choosing between these: Appropriate data collection; Formulate analysis suitable to answer their own or their clients’ questions, both under ideal data or within the constraints of available data; Identify data limitations with respect to their ability to answer specific questions; Convey potentially complex results simply every nation for the development of its Socio-Economic setup. To meet such challenges department of Statistics started M.Phil classes in 2001. The study of M.Phil is based on two years of training. During the first & second semesters, students undergo the course work and in their remaining year, they are given research tasks. Moreover, this M.Phil. is a leading Program towards Ph.D.
