The Department of Mathematics started functioning in June 2012. Currently the department offers 2-year M.Sc. and PhD programmes. In addition, the department plays an important role as a supporting department to various B.Tech and M.Tech programmes of the institute.
The main objective of the department is to attract students of science and engineering, and to provide for them academically coherent programmes, with courses that range from the fundamental to the advanced. Also to provide students with friendly pastoral and academic support which will help them develop their capabilities in an environment where both independent study and interaction with staff and fellow students are encouraged.
