Established in the year 1984, the Department of Mathematics initially focused on offering Engineering Mathematics courses for both Undergraduate and Postgraduate Engineering Programmes. The Department aims to train a select group of talented students for academic and professional careers requiring exceptional Mathematical and computational skills. The main areas of research include Graph Theory, Wavelet Transforms, Functional analysis, Combinatorial optimizations, Fluid dynamics, Differential Equations, Numerical Analysis, Financial Mathematics, Cryptography and Statistics. It has always been the aim of the Department to pursue excellence not only in research but in teaching as well.
The Department has a team of highly qualified faculty members with research interests in recent and advanced fields. The Department has organized several International and National Conferences with paper presentations and invited talks of high quality and has a good number of research papers published in refereed International and National Journals. The Department’s research activities as supported through extramural funds from various government agencies like DST, DRDO, and National Board of Higher Mathematics (NBHM) etc. Besides teaching and research activities, faculty spends quality time with the students in guiding them through their career prospects/job opportunities.
The Department has 31 faculties with rich research and teaching experience. The objective of the department is to motivate, educate and train the students at all levels. Department of Science and Technology has established two research chairs one on Number Theory and the other on Discrete Mathematics. The outcome of the chair resulted in considerable number of publications both at national and international levels and three were awarded Ph. D. degree. The Department has established computer laboratory for Discrete Mathematics under the FIST Programme. The laboratory consists of 30 higher end systems with one server. Since, the campus is wifi enabled students can use and download online resources such as journals, thesis, articles and e-books through SASTRA website. National Conference on Mathematics and its Applications in Technology provides platform for the researchers and postgraduate students to present their original research work and pave way to interact with the eminent professors and co-researchers.
