Department of Basic Science and Humanities
Knowledge of basic science forms the fundamentals of almost every engineering and technical course. Value-based education, communication, and management skills are essential to provide a finishing touch to a budding engineer. IIIT Bhagalpur is currently running UG (B.Tech.) programs in Computer Science and Engineering, Electronics and Communication, Mechatronics and Automation Engineering, and Mathematics and Computing. All of these curricula need some common courses in Mathematics, Physics, Humanities, and Management as essential components. The Department of Basic Science and Humanities was formed in 2019 to cater to these needs under a single umbrella of departmental structure. Well-experienced and highly qualified faculty members of the department aspire to make consistent and fruitful efforts to improve the students' learning, research, and development processes. In addition to the common courses for various streams in UG engineering, the department has also started a New B.Tech program in Mathematics and Computing from 2023. The department is also running a Ph.D program in Mathematics.
Current Programs Running in the Department
1) B.Tech in Mathematics and Computing
Mathematics is often considered as the foundation of Science and Technology. Moreover, knowledge in computing helps in better understanding mathematical problems. Graduates in this program shall have solid mathematical foundations with technical abilities that are currently and will remain in great demand as industries have started using Data Science and Artificial Intelligence in our day-to-day life. Admission to this program started from 2023 through CSAB/JOSAA only.
2) PhD in Mathematics
Currently, the Department is having PhD scholars with CSIR(JRF), UGC(JRF) NFOBC/NFSC fellowships.
Requirement to apply for PhD: Master's degree in Mathematics or equivalent with a minimum CGPA of 6.5 and/or 60% of marks or first class or equivalent.
