The Department of Applied Mathematics was awarded the status of a full-fledged department in 1985, which had earlier been functioning in the capacity of a section ever since 1968. Its importance lies in the fact that it caters to the needs of the undergraduate as well as post-graduate students of the Institute. In addition, the Department runs its own 5 year integrated M Tech course in Mathematics & Computing. ——————–

**Q1. What is the branch all about at IIT(BHU) Varanasi?** ** **

This branch is designed to provide students with in-depth theoretical background and practical training in computer science, numerical computing and the more abstract applications of mathematics. It enables students to handle problems in industries and government organizations through the combined use of mathematical and computer techniques.

**Q2. Many other IITs offer a course with similar names. Are they similar to the course offered at IIT(BHU) Varanasi?** ** **

MnC offered at different IITs are not same. For example: IIT Kanpur offers Mathematics and Scientific Computing which is mostly Mathematics and very little computing. MnC at IIT(BHU) Varanasi is likely to be best for people who enjoy mathematics and open to work in computer science field due to having equal portion of Math and computing. Placement are awesome with every major recruiter opening for the branch.

**Q3. How is the future prospects if some one graduates from this branch at IIT(BHU) Varanasi?**

The scope of a MnC graduate from IIT(BHU) Varanasi goes from software industries, financial institutions, and investment banks to government organizations or you can go for higher studies. MnC at IIT(BHU) Varanasi gives you a chance to branch out either into Applied Mathematics research or Computer Science. It surely has got a lot of opportunities and scope in the market and research.

**Q4. Which are the courses covered under it?**

Some of the typical courses in the program are computer architecture, computer graphics, image processing, DBMS, programming languages, theory of automata, parallel algorithms, optimization methods and applications, statistical methods and algorithms, neural computing, fuzzy sets and applications, scientific visualization, cryptography, etc.

**Q5. What is the placement scenario of MnC at IIT(BHU) Varanasi?**

MnC students at IIT(BHU) Varanasi are offered amazing packages from companies of repute. Being small in number everyone gets good jobs so naturally the average package is among the highest in the college. The placements are similar to that of IIT BHU CSE and hence this comes out to be one of the most rewarding branches in terms of placement. Honestly, it’s the result of your own interest. Companies offering placements include Microsoft, Epic Systems (US), Visa, Walmart, NetApp, Zynga Arista Networks, Qualcomm, Open Sol, SISO, Citrix R&D, Whizdom Edu, etc.

*Average Package:* 21.94 LPA

**Q6. How the course offered at IIT(BHU) Varanasi is similar or different from CSE?**

MnC is a combination of mathematics, applied math and modelling and computing. It involves more of science and integral maths while in CSE, the main focus is in algorithms.

**Q7. What are opportunities for internships in areas of research?**

*Kindly refer answer 3* * *

**Q8. Mnc offered at IIT(BHU) Varanasi is 5 years integrated masters course. Is it a good option to go for 5 years integrated MnC masters course at IIT(BHU) Varanasi?**

i) There are a lot of fields in MnC. Doing a Masters course narrows down your path to a specific field of your interest for choosing which you get 4 years. Hence you can pursue your research better when knowing exactly what you like if you want to do research. Or you could narrow down the choice list of companies you want to work with depending on your new found interest!

ii) There are companies which look for people with in-depth knowledge in a specific field, because for them it makes selecting right man for the job easier! In short, you are a getting an integrated M.tech in only 5 years which will usually take 6 years ( 4 for B.Tech + 2 for M.Tech). Also, you know what kind of jobs suits you due to doing an specialization and it makes the job of recruiter easier. That’s reflected in fantastic placement for MnC at IIT(BHU) Varanasi.

**Q9. Can I expect to secure a seat at IIT-BHU MnC if my JEE rank is in the range of 1000-2000?** J

Many students in last few years didn’t prefer IIT-BHU just because it was not an IIT. Last year there was just an anticipation that IT-BHU “MIGHT” become IIT and then we saw closing rank’s jump of around 600 for MnC. This year when IIT status has been accorded and placements have been awesome, a similar or larger out-sized jump is expected. Last year many students didn’t anticipate a jump while filling the order of their choices. As result, few were assigned some unexpected options. So make sure that you consider this fact before filling the choices of your seats. It will depend on how many students ranked higher than you opt for IIT-BHU MnC. If your rank is in the range of 1000-1500 then it’s safe to assume that you will get MnC at IIT(BHU) Varanasi.
