A student of mathematics with good analytical skills and logical reasoning can excel in any walk of life. The Department of Mathematics focuses on pure, applied and applicable mathematics catering to students of varied backgrounds to help them understand their potential and enrich their lives. The Department offers supporting and optional courses for students majoring in science, commerce and business administration. The curriculum has been designed with emphasis on the application of concepts.
The department has highly qualified and motivated faculty that includes three research scholars. They regularly attend seminars, workshops and conferences to keep themselves current for efficient classroom management and to meet the challenges of a fast changing technical world.
The core objectives of the department are to impart students with logical thinking, analytical reasoning and problem solving skills; to equip them with more technological skills and scientific computing techniques based on mathematical methods to meet the growing demand in the industrial, marketing and communication sectors; to widen their horizon of knowledge with a focus on research papers; focus on value based education for intellectual enhancement to suit the context of globalization; introduce realistic application of Mathematics in related sciences; and to enable the student to appreciate the intrinsic aspects of mathematics.
The IQ club acts as a forum for young mathematicians. The ultimate aim of the Club is to teach mathematics with fun and also to give awards every year for those scoring one hundred per cent in examinations so as to encourage them. The club conducts two events every year on Recreational Mathematics.
