Mathematics and Physics play an important role in understanding the fundamental laws of nature and it directly correlates the other fields of engineering and natural sciences. Understanding the importance and necessity of acquiring knowledge about the most exciting and interesting branch of science and engineering, Department of Mathematics and Physics belongs to the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences.
The Department of Mathematics and Physics is one of the dynamic departments of North South University, which incorporates fundamental, experimental and mathematical study. We are committed to excellence in teaching and research. All our faculty members are highly qualified and they are responsible for teaching the Mathematics, Physics and Statistics courses offered by the University. Fifteen of our twentyfour fulltime faculty members are Ph.D. s from North America, Australia or Western Europe. The breadth of expertise of our faculty members covers almost the entire range of mathematics and physics, pure as well as applied. They are active in all branches of stateofart research which include, but not limited to, the following topics:
To equip the students of our university with a Mathematics and Physics background that is essential to study their own disciplines under various departments across the university.
To run the existing Mathematics minor program and take it to a level so that it attracts the best caliber Engineering, Economics, Business and Environmental sciences majors.
To create and spread knowledge in Mathematics through research and teaching so that it can serve as a resource center of Physics and Mathematics expertise at least at the national level.
Currenty the department runs a 21 (twenty one) credits "Math Minor" program. A 23 (twenty three) credits "Physics Minor" progarm is submitted for academic review. We hope to launch this very soon. However, a complete program of MSc in Applied and Computational Sciences (AMCS) is under preparation. Our vision is to transform our department from present course offering position to a fullfledged department which among other things will offer a major in Mathematics as well as a major in Physics.
Department of Mathematics and Physics (DMP), North South University (NSU), celebrated the pimoment of the century at the campus. Pi is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. It is symbolized by the greek letter pi in the lower case (π). This is a fixed quantity, which is usually taken to be 3.14. The number of digits after the decimal is infinite. In the western countries, especially in the US, March 14 (written 3/14 in the American style) is celebrated every year as the piday. March 14 this year is a bit more special. The first ten digits of the value of pi, i.e., 3.141592653 can be arranged as March 14, 15, 9:26:53. We call this special moment as the pimoment. This moment will come again in 2115, one hundred years later.
At this precise moment (according to Bangladeshtime) of this century, students from various departments of NSU participated in a celebration of the moment. They formed a human circle with a diameter. Then dividing the number of people in the circumference by the number of people in the diameter yielded a value close to the actual value of pi. They did the same thing with chairs. At the end a large number of people formed the shape of the symbol π.
Professor Partha Pratim Dey, the chairman of the Department was present at the event along with a few other faculty members, namely, Kazi Abu Sayeed, Hasina Akter, and Muhammad Asaduzzaman. A few part time faculty members were present as well as Golam Dastegir Al Quaderi, a faculty member of the Physics Department at Dhaka University, who participated as a guest. The initiative was taken by Naureen Ahsan, a part time faculty member at NSU and a full time faculty member at Dhaka University.

Department of Mathematics and Physics (DMP) is going to celebrate the International Piday on Thursday, 14^{th} March, 2019. Pi is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. It is symbolized by the Greek letter pi in the lower case (π). This is a fixed quantity, which is usually taken to be 3.14. The number of digits after the decimal is infinite and nonrepeating.
This year DMP would like to celebrate the Piday on a larger scale. The celebration includes three contests mentioned below from 10am to 12pm on 14^{th} March, 2019, followed by the prize and certificate giving ceremony from 2pm to 4pm in Audi 801.
Contests:
A contest for the students to memorize number of digits of pi after the decimal point
A contest to find the area of a circle using a ruler and string only
Pi Sketching Contest
We are expecting maximum 50 contestants chosen on the first come first serve basis. If you are interested in participating, please collect the registration from DMP main office or the following link.

Tasmia Rahman Shahidi, from the department of ECE and Tasfea from Civil and Environmental Engineering, respectively won the 4th and 7th position in the 2nd Women's Mathematics Olympiad 2018. The competition was organised in cooperation with Department of Mathematics, the University of Dhaka and Women’s Mathematics Olympiad Committee and A. F. Mujibur Rahman Foundation. 180 students from 20 different universities from all over the country participated. Honourable faculty members from the Department of Mathematics, University of Dhaka judged the event. The winner from NSU has praised their faculties for being supportive and to encourage them to participate in such activities. Ms Tasmia said 'Mathematics is one of her favourite subjects and Dr. Hasina Akhter, faculty of Mathematics department at NSU specially guided her for the event. Rather than testing students’ ability to recall facts, the competition was designed to test students’ mathematical creativity and their ability to formulate and defend their conclusions. Every student has some potential abilities and skills, participating in different competitions is one of the ways to hone the skills and take one to the next level.
The Department of Mathematics and Physics is one of the dynamic departments of North South University, which incorporates fundamental, experimental and mathematical study. We are committed to excellence in teaching and research. At present the department does not offer any major program, but it offers the mathematics and physics courses for all undergraduate students of different disciplines across the university. The department runs a 21 credit Mathematics minor to attract the most talented Engineering, Economics, and Business and Environmental sciences majors.
The strength of the department is grounded not only in the transmission of ideas and knowledge through quality teaching, but also in the cuttingedge research and scholarly achievements of our faculty members. Fifteen of our twenty four fulltime faculty members are Ph.D. s from North America, Australia or Western Europe. The breadth of expertise of our faculty members covers almost the entire range of mathematics and physics, pure as well as applied. They are active in developing new ideas and results exploring the latest knowledge of mathematics and physics with modern computation skills profound to solve problems in the engineering and computational sciences, physical and biological sciences, economics and business.
The Department of Mathematics and Physics is located on the 10^{th} floor of the SAC building of NSU. Currently we have fulltime and parttime faculty members in our department. The parttime faculty members are from among the best faculty members of the reputed universities in Dhaka like Dhaka University, Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology etc.
We have a plan to transform our department from present service position to a fullfledged Department of Mathematical Sciences, which among other things will offer a major in mathematics as well as a major in Physics. I believe, given our faculty strength, this transformation should be a piece of cake.
