About the Department

The Mathematics department is one of the major departments in the university and has been in the forefront, providing quality education and training in the field for past 25 years even from the times of the institution having been a college, to start with.  The department stands for academic excellence, intellectual integrity and holistic development of students.

The department of Mathematics started functioning in the year 1997 and offers Mathematics for the undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in all disciplines of science, Engineering and technology..It  was elevated into a research department in the year 2012 and offers M.Phil (Full Time & Part Time) and Ph.D. ( Part Time) Programmes. The department has been expanded  with an  undergraduate programme in Mathematics (Full Time) from the academic year 2017.Now, the Department stands  recognized as a PG Department since  2020.

Vision & Mission

VISION of the Department:

• To impart students of graduate studies with a broader  understanding of the basic concepts of Mathematics, providing quality instructional methods
• To enrich the Mathematical and Analytical skills of students.
• To produce quality Mathematical science researches
• Topersuade  students to apply  theoretical Mathematics to bring out Mathematical models
• Our vision is to provide exhaustive knowledge in all areas of Mathematical Sciences and to apply their principles in  career-oriented pursuits.
• To initiate  students to know the beauty of Mathematics by their deep involvement in the subject.
• To publish research papers and articles in  international journals to let fellow scholars  know the application of Mathematics.
• To apply the knowledge obtained to develop the society.
• To empower students to envisage and conquer the real world problems

MISSION of the Department:

• To develop a  community that values mathematics and its applications
• To provide  a foundation for critical thinking by developing skills in logic and problem solving
• To  offer a broad selection of courses that can be tailored to diverse student needs; and
• To develops close mentoring relationships among faculty and students through small classes, student-faculty research projects, and a drop-in study lab staffed by mathematics faculty.

Student Activities

With the constant encouragement of our staff, many of our students have participated in inter-collegiate competitions in academics and won overall championships and various prizes. These activities have helped our students to go for higher studies abroad. They have won prizes in sports and cultural competitions conducted in our college. Some of our students have attended the Aptitude training programme conducted by our Faculties to improve their skills.

Remedial programmes are conducted successfully for the academic betterment of students. Highest number of students in our department has been placed in reputed companies through campus recruitment Special programmes are conducted to improve their academic performance as well as to motivate and encourage students to become aware of the job opportunities available and to know about the higher studies for their future.

Staff Activities

At present the department has 21 Faculty Members with 9 Research Guides and 45 Students enrolled for PhD research program and 100 Students enrolled for M.Phil research program To create more interest on the subjects, students are motivated by being given more examples, diagrammatic representations, their applications in real world using modern techniques and various clippings. The department has conducted workshops, Webinars, FDPs for faculties to improve their teaching skills and knowledge.

Research Activities

The thrust areas of research are Graph Labeling and Coloring, Theoretical Computer Science and graph theory ,Fuzzy sets, Algebra, Rough Set Theory, Fractals and Operations Research.
