The Ramanujan School of Mathematical Sciences comprising of the Departments of Mathematics and Statistics was established on 23.03.04 as per the Academic Ordinances of the Pondicherry University. The School aims at imparting quality education in Mathematics and Statistics, which are realized by the various post graduate study programmes in Mathematics and Statistics offered by the School. All the two departments of the School have distinguished faculty, and well equipped laboratories with excellent computing facilities. Research activities in emerging research disciplines are being carried out in the Departments. About 12 research scholars mentored by experienced supervisors are currently pursuing their research works in these disciplines. Research projects funded by NBHM, DST and UGC add to the credit of the School. The School also paves way for a plethora of employment opportunities to the students by organizing Campus Placement Programmes by inviting various companies.

From the academic year 2007-08, the School offers a five year integrated M.Sc. programme in the three branches of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science . The intake of students for each subject is 16, aggreating  to  a total of 48 for the  five-year integrated M.Sc. programme.

Course Pattern : 
During the first three years, a candidate of M.Sc. integrated programme has to take a total of 33 hard core courses of 3 credits each (11 hard core courses in each of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science) and a minimum of 5 soft core courses of 3 credits each covering all the three subjects viz. Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science. In addition, all the candidates have to compulsorily take 2 courses in English and one course in Environmental Science of 3 credits each. The course of study during the first three years is common for all the students offering the branches of Mathematics, Statistics or Computer Science. The students of the 4th and 5th years of this programme have to take the courses in the respective departments of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science.
Infrastructure: 
A seperate building called LEcture Hall Complex houses all five -year integrated programmes offered on the campus. The Integrated Programme has seminar halls/ class rooms with modern audio/ video facilities and well-equipped computer laboratory.
