In the present paper, we introduce the Stancu type generalisation of Lupas-Schurer operators based on (p, q)-integers. We are concerned with the basic convergence of the constructed operators based on Korovkin's type approximation theorem. Further, we obtain the rate of convergence for the new operators in terms of the modulus of continuity, with the help of functions of Lipschitz class and Peetre's K-functionals. Then, we present three significant numerical mathematical algorithms. Finally, in order to confirm our theoretical results we obtain error estimation and illustrate the convergence of the (p, q)-Lupas Schurer-Stancu operators to certain functions by using MATLAB.
