Welcome to the Department of Mathematics and Statistics of Bangladesh University of Business and Technology(BUBT).
History cannot specifically locate when people started using mathematics. But nobody will disagree that the application of mathematics has started from the very primitive stage of civilization. In contrast to Mathematics, Statistics is relatively a new branch of knowledge. Though it is new but Statistics is as much important as Mathematics. Mathematics and Statistics have been used in modern age and will also be used in the future too as their application have been rapidly increasing world-wide.
Department of Mathematics and Statistics is a community of scholars committed to achieve academic excellence like other departments of this prestigious University. It started functioning from Fall 2005 with M.Sc. in Mathematics (1 year) program. From Summer 2007, M.Sc. in Mathematics (2-year) program was introduced. The department also conducts different courses on Mathematics in all the departments under the Faculty of Business and the Faculty of Engineering & Applied Sciences.
