In the modern world, computational simulations are everywhere and the amount of data available for many enterprises is increasing exponentially. The Internet makes these large quantities of data readily available for many enterprises. Many areas of science, engineering, and industry are now concerned with building and evaluating mathematical models, exploring them computationally, and analyzing enormous amounts of observed and computed data. These activities are all inherently mathematical in nature.

Thus, the modern computerized world demands the human resource having all three – analytical ability, data processing capability and fast computing efficiency, i.e., the combined knowledge of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science and Information Technology. The practice has shown that such human resourse cannot be produced by the present system of education in Nepal.

Tribhuvan University has quite recently taken up this as a challenge and has decided to run Bachelor and Master Degree Program in Mathematical Sciences (B.Math.Sc. and M.Math.Sc.) that will help produce at least a critical mass of experts with sound knowledge of fundamentals of mathematics, statistical and analytical capability and fluent computational skills.

**What is Mathematical Sciences ?**

Mathematical sciences is a group of disciplines involving mathematics. The mathematical sciences tends to be invisible, but it is prevalent wherever

- computers are used,
- data are available,
- physics or chemistry is applied,
- geometry is significant,
- statistics is employed,
- processes or designs are optimized.

Mathematical sciences is used in almost every type of business – large or small. Studying mathematical sciences means you can work in other fields, such as Chemistry, Biology, Earth Sciences, Computing, Economics, Finance, Engineering, Physics, Electronics, Banking and Meteorology, to list just a few disciplines.

**Mission statement of the School**

The School of Mathematical Sciences, Tribhuvan University (TU SMS), is committed to help the learners not only knowing and understanding the modern world but also making them able to combine the development of knowledge and practical skills in solving real-world problems encountered in various disciplines.

**Vision Statement**

School of Mathematical Sciences, Tribhuvan University (TU SMS), is born to provide students with extensive and diverse knowledge in the Mathematical Sciences, i.e. a unique interdisciplinary learning environment for high quality education and research through a blending of the three disciplines: mathematics, statistics and computer science, and thrives to become a Centre of Excellence.
