Mathematics has had a big role in the development of Computer Science and Information Technology. There are myriad applications of mathematics in technology. It is hard to conceive any aircraft, any robot, or any future technology to be produced only with a high level of mathematical precision. In recent years, the influence of mathematics in other fields has also grown enormously. Economics and social sciences, once impervious to mathematics, are coming increasingly under its influence. 

The need for understanding mathematics is necessary in all walks of life – whether engineers or scientists, or those working in the world of industry, finance or social sciences. Its role in other human endeavors apart, There is an aesthetic component to its pursuit and it inculcates the habit of rational thought and promotes what our visionaries call “scientific temper”. It is important that studies of mathematics are promoted amongst the young generation.
