Introduction
TOP
The Department is the oldest centre of Mathematics in the
northwestern Subcontinent. It was founded by eminent Mathematician,
Prof. W. H. Crank in 1864, after he took over as Officiating Principal
of Government College Lahore. The Department maintained high standards
ever since its inception. Celebrated Number Expert of the Subcontinent,
Dr. S. Chawla was a Prepartition old Ravain who later became
Chairperson of the Department and served from 1935 to 1947. He conducted
research in collaboration with leading Mathematicians of his time
including C. Bose and Prof. Artin and his contributions were
acknowledged by the American Mathematical Society.
The year 1966 marked the advent of a new era for the
Department where Master Programme was launched independently at
Government College Lahore, on the initiative of a competent teacher and
administrator, Prof. L. M. Chawala, who had earlier launched the
publication of the journal of "Natural Sciences and Mathematics" in 1961.
An esteemed Ravian (session 19441946), a great mathematician of the
20th century, and later Chairperson, Department of Mathematics (1951
1952), Prof. Salam earned international distinction by receiving over 20
prestigious awards, finally winning the Nobel Prize for Theoretical
Physics in 1979.
During the last 70 years, the Department has had the following
Professors as Chairpersons:
Prof S Chawla (1935  47)
Prof S A Hamid (1947  51)
Prof Abdus Salam (1951  52)

The
torch of GCU continues to burn with the flame of the Courage to Know
here at the Department of Mathematics. One of our recent graduates, Mr.
Muhammad Ali Khan, has been awarded the lzazeSabqat, 2002 and
the Rhodes Scholarship, 2003 for DPhil at the University of Oxford.
Facilities
TOP
Computing Laboratory
The University provides a network of PCs and internet
facilities for the needful computing in research. The facility is also
available in the Department and has its own computing research lab,
which includes latest PCs, projectors, scanners and laser printers etc.
The lab is equipped with internet and all the necessary packages for
computing and processing. The Math Sci. net facility which is to be set
up soon, will be available in addition to the electronic resources.
Career Scope / Opportunities
The programmes are designed in such a way that the
graduates can work in banking sector, industries and education
department. Research of the graduates and faculty members is recognized
worldwide and published in international journals.
