Chairman's Message

Welcome to department of Basic Sciences and Related Studies!

The active faculty of the department is fervent about imparting high-quality teaching and skills of cutting-edge research. The department currently comprises of 33 academic staff of Mathematics, Pakistan and Islamic Studies (including 6 PhDs and 13 M.Phil.) and 08 non-academic staff. Research interests of the faculty are engulfed in fields like Computational Fluid Dynamics, Nano-fluids, Magneto hydrodynamics, Differential Equations, Numerical Analysis, Mathematical Statistics, Perturbation Techniques, Engineering Mathematics, Operations Research and Fractional Calculus.       

The faculty of the department teaches various fundamental and compulsory courses including Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Science, Pakistan Studies and Islamic Studies/Ethics. Students are also assisted to understand theoretical work of Mathematics with the help of programming languages such as C++ and MATLAB in well-equipped computer laboratories of the department. The courses of Mathematics and Computer Sciences are also taught to the Postgraduate students of the University by the faculty of Basic Sciences and Related Studies. In this way, this department is helping students to equip with necessary mathematical expertise to deal with problems being occurred in current technological era. The department also participates in offering short courses for MATLAB, Maple, Mathematica, Mathcad, Ansys-Fluent and LaTeX. The department also offers a 2-year M.Phil. and 4-year PhD program in Applied and Computational Mathematics. This will help the students of Mathematics, Statistics, Physics and Engineering to further improve their qualifications and knowledge in Applied Mathematics and relevant fields. Presently, number of students are enrolled in M.Phil. and PhD program offered by the department whereas many have been awarded the degrees in recent past.

The extensive research work is also being carried out by qualified faculty members of this department. One Ph.D project has been approved by HEC under National Research Program entitled “Finite Element Modeling of Blood Flow”. The department was awarded for Research Productivity by Pakistan Council for Science & Technology in the year 2003-2004 on the basis of research conducted during the year 2002.
