The Minor Programmes

The Minor Programme in Mathematics

The minor programme in Mathematics is designed to allow engineering and science students to pursue a more rigourous education in mathematics. The minor courses have been selected to represent the different basic areas of mathematics. A student completing these courses will achieve a better understanding of the mathematical techniques used in the sciences and engineering disciplines and will also be well equipped for further advanced mathematical education. Twenty (20) students will be admitted in the courses offered under this programme.

Note that the institute mandates that at least 30 credits need to be earned in order to obtain a minor in a given discipline.

The Minor programme in Statistics

Statistical analysis, modeling and inference are required in almost all areas of the natural and social sciences, technology and industrial research and development. There has always been a demand for trained graduates and specialists in different branches of Statistics.

The M.Sc. (Applied Statistics and Informatics) offered by the Mathematics department caters to this need. For the benefit of B. Tech. students interested in applying statistics in their discipline of graduation or for those aspiring for jobs that require statistical analytics and decision making, the Department also offers a minor programme comprising of the following important foundational courses to a limited number (maximum 20) of selected students of B. Tech. at IIT Bombay.

Note that the institute mandates that at least 30 credits need to be earned in order to obtain a minor in a given discipline.
