About Mathematics Department

The DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS was established in the year 2002 and has senior and experienced faculty together with young, dynamic faculty members.  The Department has 10 teaching faculty with teaching experience ranging from 3years to 25 years. The Department consists of one associate professor, 5 assistant professors and 4 Lecturers with Masters Degree in Mathematics. Presently one of our faculty members is having Ph.D and one pursuing his Ph.D studies in M.I.T. Manipal.

Our Department provides a strong foundation of Mathematical basics which are building blocks of all subjects of Engineering fields. We also teach very essential subjects of M.B.A , M.C.A, M.Tech. which are helpful for these masters degree students. We teach some special subjects for Computer Science and Information Science students like Discrete Mathematical Structures and Graph Theory. A good number of Computer Science students are opting for mathematical subjects as their electives in higher semesters.
