About Us

The School of Mathematics & Statistics (SMS) was established in 2020 for providing teaching, research and training in theoretical and applied areas of mathematical sciences with interdisciplinary applications.  In the present data driven world all types of research, decisions and planning are deep rooted in mathematics and statistics.

Mathematics and Statistics are fundamental disciplines of study and constitutes most important tools for all programs of study and research as well as industry and management. India had a rich heritage of Mathematicians and Statisticians like Srinivasa Ramanujan, Prof. Harish Chandra, Prof. P.C. Mahalanobis, Prof. C. R.  Rao, Prof. SRS Varadhan etc. Kerala had a rich heritage of a School of Mathematics and Astronomy during 14th century,  founded by Madhava of Sangamagrama  which included among its members  Parameshvara, Neelakanta Somayaji, Jyeshtadeva, Achyuta Pisharati, Melpathur Narayana Bhattathiri and Achyuta Panikkar.

Kerala has produced a  number of reputed statisticians at international level like U.S.Nair, K.R.Nair, KCS Pillai, R.N.Pillai, T. Kailath, Vijayan Nair, A.M. Mathai, Bovas Abraham, Thomas Mathew, Peethambaran Kartha etc. Moreover the study of mathematical sciences is to be encouraged in order to make people more literate in Mathematics ad Statistics. At national level the MHRD, DST, NBHM, CSIR etc are encouraging mathematics education and research with good financial support. The Govt. of Kerala, SSA, KSCSTE etc  are making all efforts to create interest in mathematics education  to students. The Ministry of Statistics and Program Implementation (MOSPI) and Central Statistical Office is striving to revamp the Official Statistical System and Teaching, Research and  Training  in Statistics and related areas.The Central Statistical Commission was formed to monitor these quality enhancement drive. Every year, Govt. of India has been celebrating National Mathematics Day on 22 December since 2012 and National Statistics Day on 29 June since 2006, in order to create interest  in Mathematics ad Statistics among children and public.

Large number of  students of  this university have been successful  in UGC-CSIR NET/JRF examination and  Indian Statistical Service examination conducted by UPSC every year.. Statistical Research Methodology and Data Analysis using advanced level statistical softwares like SAS, SPSS, SYSTAT, Statistica etc as well as open softwares like Python, R etc is essential for advancement of research and quality publications in international journals. Statistical methods are widely used in biological and social sciences as well as commerce and management sciences. Large scale funds for research projects and infrastructure development are provided by DST, UGC, MOSPI, NBHM etc.
