The Department of Mathematics hosts the following degree Programs, namely:
(a) M.Sc. (Mathematics) Program,
(b) M.Sc.- M.Tech. (Mathematics & Data Science) Program
(c) M.Tech. (Data and Computational Science) Program, and
(d) M.Tech.- Ph.D.  (Data and Computational Science) Program,
(e)  Ph.D. Program with specialisation in Mathematics.

While the B.Tech. (System Science) and Ph.D. Programs were existing, M.Sc. (Mathematics) Program is being rolled out from July 2015 onwards. The motivation to start this program and its outline are, as below.

Scientific and technological advances have brought us to the level, where today we are increasing dealing with the following:
 1. Situations where nonlinearity plays a central role,
 2. Situation where understanding of risk and uncertainty is imperative,
 3. Application of clever algorithms for security of digital contents and encrypted communications, and
 4. Network based phenomena getting ubiquitous, etc.

While the classical aspects of mathematics are providing foundations for analysis of key principles behind such modern and emergent technologies, modern aspects of mathematics coupled with computational capabilities are opening new avenues for further explorations. The M.Sc. (Mathematics) Program at IIT Jodhpur aims at tapping these opportunities by developing workforce specialized in mathematical aspects of key technologies.

The M.Sc. (Mathematics) Program is planned towards mathematics for key technologies. With this inclination, the program strives to balance between analysis and application aspects of mathematics. In this four-semester program, the first two semesters have basic course work, and the last two semesters have project. The course work covers the following:
 1. Fundamental aspects of real analysis, complex analysis and functional analysis, and abstract algebra,
 2. Foundations of application-oriented topics like linear algebra, ordinary and partial differential equations, probability and statistics, and optimization techniques, and
 3. Computational aspects of programming techniques and numerical analysis.

The students can explore further in their area of interest with an elective course.

As a part of two-semester long project work, the students of this program will carry out research in mathematical aspects of key technologies and emerging areas. This will give them an opportunity to apply their mathematical skills to solve real life problems. The program aims at enhancing such real-life problem-solving skills by collaborating with industry and R&D laboratories.
Due to this, apart from the traditional academic and research employment avenues, graduates of this program will have openings in industries,like mathematical modelling and simulations (domain specific), image and signal processing, industrial optimization and automation, data analysis, risk management and cyber-security.
