Department Of Mathematics
Department of Mathematics was created from the very inception mainly to cater to the basic needs of the various B. Tech programs of the Institute. It started with a very modest beginning as a single faculty member having only a handful of courses. As the department grew keeping in view a variety of applications in diversified areas, it has expanded to the size of eleven faculty members teaching more than thirty courses at the UG and PG level. An M. Tech program in Applied and Computational Mathematics (ACM) was started in July 2008. We believe in developing good teaching and learning methods along with research activities in areas which are relevant to the present day needs of Science, Engineering and Technology. At present there are two professors, one associate professor, four assistant professors, three senior lecturers and one associate lecturer in the department.

Research Activities/Ph. D. Program:
At present a number of research scholar are working for a Ph. D. degree in the areas of specialization. To strengthen the research environment of the department, a weekly lecture series related different areas of interest is organized by the faculty/invited faculty/research scholars of the department. We also invite the people from outside the institute including people from other countries to interact with our faculty and research scholars. During the last five years the faculty has published a large number of papers in various national/international journals and attended various national and international conferences.
Some of the areas in which research is being carried out are as follows:
- Wavelets and Applications
- Advanced Computing Methods
- Finite Element and Mesh Free Methods
- Fixed Point Theory, Fractals and Chaos
- Computational Continuum Mechanics
- Optimization Techniques
- Fuzzy Topology, Automata Theory
- Computer Graphics
- Combinatorial Mathematics, Functional Equations
- Coding Theory, Information theory
