Department of Mathematics

The Department of Mathematics is one of the oldest departments of the University of the Punjab. It was established in 1880s and has produced many brilliant graduates, some of whom have acquired eminence in Mathematics and allied fields like Mathematical and Theoretical Physics. For many years teaching in this department was conducted on inter-Collegiate basis whereby teachers from local colleges like Government College, F.C. College, Dyal Singh College, Islamia College Civil Lines and M.A.O. College, Lahore used to come and take the M.Sc. classes in the University premises. In 1956, the University took the important step of building up the department as an independent institution, two whole time teachers: one reader and one senior lecturer were appointed.
Since then the department has been growing in strength. Presently department conducts BS (4 years), M.Sc. (Morning/ Evening), M.S./ M.Phil. and Ph.D. programmes.
