The Department of Mathematics was founded in 1956, under the name Department of Applied Mathematics. It started with only undergraduate program offering to engineering students. Mathematics play an important role in engineering and it is clearly reflected from the fact that it conducts all the mathematics courses offered in different branches of engineering, management, pharmaceutical sciences, architecture and the University polytechnic.
Currently, Department of Mathematics consists of 10 regular faculty members with expertise in both pure and applied mathematics. In addition to the regular faculty members, the department has 11 other faculty members who have joined through TEQIP. They are all well qualified, highly motivated towards teaching and always attempt to cooperate students inside and outside the classroom. Faculties are also involved in research activities and have published their articles in highly impact journals. They are also skilled in writing books on Optimization, Mathematical Modeling, Differential Equations, Operations Research, Vedic Mathematics, Discrete Mathematics, Music and Mathematics and Algorithmic Complexity.
The Department runs Ph.D programme, 2-year M.Sc. programme in Mathematics and 5-year Integrated M.Sc. programme (Mathematics and Computing). It has also been actively engaged in organizing conferences, workshops, summer and winter schools, invited lecture series. It also has initiated organizing seminars (two seminars in each month) aiming at distribution of knowledge about research areas among graduate and Ph.D students.
The Department is equipped with a modern computer laboratory with latest scientific software such as Matlab, Mathematica, Mathcad, Minitab, SPSS, LINGO etc.
Many of the graduate students have gone for higher studies in reputed academic institution within India and abroad. Our students are getting selected for internship and in-campus/off-campus placement at IIT Bombay, infosys, Wipro, Capital Float, Intutent Incl., Pricewaterhouse coopers, Mu Sigma, Deloitte, TCS, Azim Premji foundation, SAP Labs, Blackberry, Tredence, Hangout Store.
To become a globally recognized centre of excellence in teaching and research, producing excellent academicians, professionals and innovators who can positively contribute towards the society.
1. Imparting strong fundamental concepts to students in the field of Mathematical Sciences and motivate them towards innovative and emerging areas of research.
2. Creation of compatible environment and provide sufficient research facilities for undertaking quality research to achieve global recognition.
