The Department of Mathematics was established in the year 1994 to offer Engineering Mathematics courses for the undergraduate (B. Tech.) programs and post-graduate programs (M. Tech., MCA). Later, from 2003 onwards, when the institution obtained the University status, the Department started offering elective courses for undergraduate and postgraduate program and also advanced courses for Ph. D. programs. From 2004, the Department has been offering Ph. D. programs in Graph Theory, Multi-wavelet Transforms and Statistics, Magneto hydrodynamics, Lie Algebra Bundles and Cryptography.
The Department has a team of highly qualified faculty members most of them being Ph. D. holders, with specialization in recent and advanced fields in Analysis, Algebra, Fluid Mechanics, Statistics, Six Sigma, Numerical Analysis, Number Theory etc. The Department has organized several International and National Conferences with paper presentations and invited talks of high quality. The Department has to its credit a good number of research papers published in refereed International and National Journals.
The five year integrated M. Sc. program in Mathematics is started in 2013 keeping in mind the requirement for people with post graduate qualification in Mathematics to hold teaching positions in Engineering Institutions and to get into Research Institutes/Industrial Establishments. This program is also aimed at placements in Software Industries. The curriculum aims at giving a strong foundation in the basics and then motivating towards specializations for research activities of an interdisciplinary nature and thus acting as a catalyst for initiating many research programs, theoretical and practical in nature.
