GCU Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Hassan Amir Shah proudly holding three conferences this week which provided them opportunities to establish research and academic linkages with national and international universities.
GCU Mathematics Department had been the most elderly place of learning and imparting knowledge of Mathematics in Pakistan.
GCU was the only centre of teaching Mathematics in this part of the subcontinent until 1920 when the Punjab University established its Department of Mathematics.
Mathematics was very an enormous field of science but unfortunately youth studied mathematics without knowing its applications which resulted in decline in their interest as well as understanding.
Modern research had become multifaceted and multidisciplinary so universities needed to puddle in their resources and expertise.
