The Department of Applied Mathematics came into existence with the Institute of Armament Studies’ inception in 1953 as the Faculty of Applied Mathematics. The faculty is constituted of three departments: (1) Applied Mathematics (2) Ballistics (3) Statistics, and (4) Data Sciences.  In 1991 the three departments merged into one and named it as Department of Applied Mathematics. The Department of Applied Mathematics offers a two-year Interdisciplinary programme: M. Tech. (Modelling & Simulation) and M. Tech. (Data Science) and also offers a Doctoral Degree programme in the areas of Applied Mathematics. The admissions to these programmes are open for under-sponsored (DRDO, DPSUs, Industry, and Tri-services, etc.) and all civilian students (Through GATE). The present strength of the Department is five. All faculties are experienced and well qualified from IIT / NIT with post-doctoral experience.
