Department of Mathematics & Statictics , Faculty of Engineering & Applied Sciences

 

Department of Mathematics is constituent department of Faculty of Engineering and Applied Sciences (FEAS). Mathematics is one of the oldest academic disciplines of the basic sciences. It is considered the basis in learning and understanding the science subjects. This is why it is called “Mother of All Sciences”. Mathematicians can contribute in diverse elds, such as in all Basic Sciences, all branches of Engineering, Industry, Management, and Metrology in Teaching and Research. We believe that if we have good and Competent Mathematicians, we can bring revolution in our Education, Industry and latest Modern Technologies. The department endeavours 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 grounds 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.

 

Message from the Dean
It is my pleasure to introduce you to the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Sciences (FEAS), Riphah International University, Islamabad. I am both humbled and honoured by the great responsibility bestowed upon me to take the FEAS to greater heights in academic and research excellence. FEAS is one of the oldest and leading faculties of the University which presently consists of following departments: 1. Department of Electrical Engineering 2. Department of Biomedical Engineering 3. Department of Mathematics & Statistics 4. Department of Physics Both the undergraduate programs i.e. BSc Electrical and Biomedical Engineering are duly accredited by Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) under Washington Accord and are in-line with Higher Education Commission (HEC). By virtue of this accreditation, the degrees conferred by the FEAS would be reckoned as substantially equivalent to the degrees awarded in the signatories of the Washington Accord members (USA, UK, Australia, Canada, Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea, Hong Kong, Russia and China etc.) In addition, postgraduate programs including MS and PhD Electrical Engineering, MS and PhD Biomedical Engineering are also offered. The undergraduate and graduate programs are being taught under semester system of education. The curricula of the programs are designed and developed as per guidelines and recommendations of the PEC and HEC. In order to cater for the practical and research requirements of the programs, state-of-the-art labs have been developed and maintained. It is ensured that our graduates get comprehensive hands-on-experience on the latest equipment in the respective areas. Besides, the students are groomed to get expertise on solving of engineering and applied sciences complex-problems in real-life. Therefore, the students are trained in such a way that they meet the market requirements and thus get absorbed at earliest in the respective industries. The importance of Basic Sciences in the Universities is like a heart-beat in human body. The 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 in Sciences. The subjects of Basic Sciences: Mathematics, Physics, Statistics play a vital role in the development of a country. We are committed to produce competent, motivated and socially responsible Mathematicians, Physicists and Statisticians that they can build the good traditions through education and to participate actively in the development of country. PhD, MPhil, MSc and BS Programs are simultaneously offered in Mathematics, Statistics and Physics department. Presently, there are about 3505 undergraduate and graduate students in FEAS. Highly qualified teachers including 55 PhDs are hired in the faculty who got rich academic and research experience. Various research groups are involved in research activities which produce quality work in their respective areas. Our faculty is actively involved in thematic, applied and multi disciplinary research and thus FEAS is the highest research-producing faculty of the University. I assure you of quality education, cutting-edge research and conducive environment so please have a “seeing is believing visit” of our campus.

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 training. During the first & second semesters, students undergo the course work and in their remaining year, they are given research task. Moreover, this M.Phil. is a leading Programme towards Ph.D.

 

Aims and Objectives:

 

The importance of Basic Sciences in the 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 in Sciences.

 

The subjects of Basic Sciences: Mathematics, Physics, Statistics, Economics, play a vital role in the development of a Country. It is our intention to produce competent, motivated and socially responsible Mathematicians, Physicists, Statistician and Economists that they can build the good traditions through education and to 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.
