The Department of Mathematics was established in 2004. The department has competent faculties with wide knowledge in pure & Applied Mathematics. The department offers M.Sc. (Hons) and Ph.D. programs. The average strength in each year is approximately 200 students, spread over 5 years. The department provides opportunities to the students to choose their career in education and research in various fields of Mathematics. Department runs several foundation courses for all students pursuing integrated first-degree programs (B.E., M.Sc. (Hons), M.Sc. (Tech)) of the Institute which provides a strong foundation for the various fields of Mathematics that would be essential and useful in both engineering and sciences. Besides these, the department also offers specialised courses in Mathematics for students pursuing M.Sc. (Hons) and Ph.D. degrees in Mathematics. The department also contributes substantially to the Work Integrated Learning Programs (WILP) of the Institute, specifically designed for professionals working in various industries. The graduates from the department will have distinguished careers in science and engineering. The track record in this regard shows that our alumni have occupied leading positions in top-ranked industries and premier institutes across the globe. The department is deeply involved in research and shares the knowledge and transfers it to the academic and industrial sectors through publications, lectures, collaborations, consultations etc.
