Mathematics Department

About the Department :

Department of Mathematics was established in the academic year 1988-1989 and it offers opportunities for the education and research in a wide spectrum of areas in Mathematics and Applied Mathematics. The Department started offering CBCS elective courses for postgraduate programs and also advanced courses for Ph. D. program. The Department of Mathematics strives to be recognized for excellence among academic institutions in India. The Department wishes to focus on providing a comprehensive curriculum at postgraduate levels and career opportunities in India. The department is committed to train the students to make them motivated and dedicated teaching and scientific research. The department is offering two programmes one is M.ScMathematics and other one is M.ScApplied Mathematicsandhas been introduced choice based credit system curriculum. The new syllabus that is proposed for the M.Sc Mathematics and M.Sc Applied Mathematics curriculum has been prepared keeping in view of the guidelines presented in UGC model curriculum for PG programme. The proposed syllabus covers 95% of the content suggested by UGC. This also covers the syllabus that is needed to clear the examinations conducted at national level such as CSIR-NET/SET examination for research fellowships, eligibility for lecturer-ship, GATE examination for higher studies in technical education, also employed in various government and non government organizations. This syllabus is oriented to create suitable workforce to support teaching community in Mathematics as well as in Applied Mathematics. The courses involved in the curriculum have tremendous potential for applications in the industry. Some of these courses are useful in designing algorithms and performing computations needed in several real world applications.

Vision:

To make the department as a global centre for excellence in Mathematics to coordinate the growth of Science and Technology.

Mission:

To impart quality education and scientific researchin Mathematics through updated curriculum, effective teaching learning process. To inculcate innovative skills, theme of team-work and ethical practices among students so as to meet societal expectations.

Swot:

Strengths

  1. The major strength of the Department of Mathematics is the quality of the faculty. A majority of the faculty have strong and established research programs with strengths in the areas of nonlinear analysis, applied analysis, mathematical modelling and simulation, Mathematical Biology, Lattice Theory.
  2. Quality teaching has been a priority for mathematics faculty, and several faculties have received outstanding research awards.
  3. Strong faculty qualification, committed, talented and dedicated, knowledgeable and cooperative faculty, great collaboration and good communication among faculty.
  4. Faculty-initiated activitiesoutside class like weeklyseminar and studentresearch.

Weaknesses:

  1. Difficult to communicate to higher authorities in proper way.
  2. Failed to eliminate chalkboards for teaching.
  3. Lack of regular faculty.

Opportunities:

  1. Economy encouraging more students to choose Ship, raising enrolment.
  2. Current trends in improvingSTEM education provide grantopportunities.
  3. Promote more than math minimum
  4. Competitive enrolment (better prerequisite enforcement)
  5. Better collaboration with other disciplines.

Threats:

  1. Student attitude towards mathematics
  2. Lack of student dedication
  3. Lack of technology (hardware /software)
  4. Lack of computer lab & library in the department
  5. Administration fails to involve proper individuals before making decisions

Strategic Plans:

The Faculty of Mathematics Strategic Plan 2019-2024 was developed through extensive consultation with Mathematics faculty, students, staff, university administrators, national researchers, employers and alumni. The purpose is to formulate objectives for the department's future research profile and to bring new study programs and new educational approaches into the department's educational profile. 1. Fill open and anticipated positions with faculty who excel in both research and teaching. 2. Continue to make connections with industries, labs, and government agencies that can offer our students internships and regular employment. Bring speakers and recruiters to campus when possible. 3. Introduce more innovative teaching methods to some of our coursework (blended [online/classroom] learning, the Moore method, etc.) to encourage more intellectual engagement. 4. Continue to emphasize the importance of external funding. 5. Be one of the top research departments in the world, and be widely recognized as such. 6. Develops world class facilities for collaborative research and learning in mathematics. 7. Maintain an existing, dynamic, collaborative environment supporting activities at he frontiers of the mathematical sciences.
