“Without Mathematics, there’s nothing you can do. Everything around you is numbers.” - Shakuntala Devi, the human computer
The Department of Mathematics came into existence along with the establishment of the college in 1991. The Department comprises sixteen faculty members and offers B. Sc. (H) Mathematics (3 year) and M. Sc. Mathematics (2 year) course. The Department has a highly qualified bunch of experienced young and dynamic faculty members, most of them being Ph.D holders with specialisation in recent and advanced fields of Algebra, Differential Equations, Space Dynamics and Operation Research. Teaching and research are the prime areas of concentration of the Department to impart quality education. The Department has to its credit, a good number of books, e-book chapters and research papers published in refereed international and national journals. The faculty members are actively involved in attending/organising seminars, conferences, workshops, refresher courses to increase efficiency and keep themselves updated with the latest trends and technologies. To meet the latest requirements, the Department keeps on periodically updating and revising its teaching pedagogies.
The Department of Mathematics offers research projects such as the ELITE Fellowship ( offered by the college) during the summer vacations to undergraduate students, which proves to be a unique platform to exhibit their innovative ideas and creativity in the field of research.
The Department has been able to carve out a niche for itself by not only imparting theoretical knowledge of the subject but also by providing hands on practice through a well equipped computer lab with access to softwares like Mathematica, Matlab, Maxima etc. Under the EXPLORE Scheme (offered by the college), the Department organises excursions every year for its second year students to develop social and cultural skills.
