 B.Sc in Computational Mathematics is offered in Department of Mathematics of Kathmandu University. This interdisciplinary program mostly sits at the intersection of Mathematics and Computer Science. In this program, students will gain rigorous mathematical knowledge and develop efficient computational skils to break down every complex real-world problems.

Student enrolled in this program will be exposed to wide range of problems in Science, Engineering, Technology and Industries. Graduates of this program will be able to deploy a wide range of mathematical and computational techniques effectively and efficiently to solve the problems. The programs enhances and maintains the relevant software tools; and communicates results of complex modeling and simulation to end-users.

Kathmandu University has launched B.Sc in Mathematics with specialization in Computer in 199 and as a continuation of this program KU has started B.Sc in Computational Mathematics since 2017 with updated curriculum structure for the first time in South Asia.

It is a degree which prepares a student either for direct employment in industries or for higher studies in Mathematics and IT fields after graduation.
