Department Of Mathematics
INTRODUCTION
The Department of Mathematics was established in the year 2005 and has a privilege to be one of the founding undergraduate departments in the college. Presently, it has the faculty strength of 02 members. The Department of Mathematics offers exciting programs for undergraduate students, while providing the foundation in Mathematics that is crucial to the education of our students.Undergraduate students seeking a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) in Mathematics can choose from the following concentrations: differential calculus, integral calculus, real analysis, differential equations, numerical analysis, graph theory and group theory. Additionally, a new Bachelors programme in Information Technology (B.Sc.IT.) has recently been added to already existing courses in the college wherein the Mathematics Departments has a crucial role to exert.The department’s course offerings are broad providing students with the breadth of opportunity associated with much larger educational institutions, along with the personalized attention that is the hallmark of our college.In addition to a rigorous curriculum, the department offers a vibrant environment for professional development and scientific discourse. Regular visitors to the department present on the latest research findings in Mathematics and introduce students to careers that build upon the knowledge base and skill sets developed in our degree programs.
VISION
To be among the best Mathematics departments in the state and to establish a reputation as a centre for learning and teaching in Mathematics, our vision is to explore the world of Mathematics, conduct innovative research, teaching and focus on Analysis, Algebra and Applied Mathematics.
MISSION
The mission of theDepartment of Mathematics is to provide an environment wherestudents can learn and become competent users of Mathematics and mathematicalapplication. Moreover, the department will contribute to the development of students asmathematical thinkers, enabling them to become lifelong learners, to continue to grow intheir chosen professions, and to function as productive citizens.
In pursuing this mission, our primary departmental functions are the development, dissemination,and application of mathematical knowledge and in the areas of Mathematics, mathematicseducation, and Information Technology. We, as a team of faculty, will serve the students to develop in them the mathematical resoning, application of Maths in day-to-day life, analysis, employability to become productive social constituents.
In fulfilling this mission, the department creates an environment where the students continue to grow as teachers, scholars and other professionals.
HOD’s MESSAGE:
“Mathematics is queen of the Sciences”
C.F. Gauss.
In this era of emerging technologies & advanced sciences, developed nations are focusing on applied research by using knowledge linkages between scientists, engineers, and researchers. Mathematicsforms the backbone of knowledge development for scientists and engineers. Our focus is to produce scholars equipped with modernmathematical tools, with strong understanding towards real world experiences and engineering problems.
I strongly believe that nobody can develop into a prominent Engineer, Scientist or IT professional without a significant knowledge of Mathematics.
As an important human endeavour, Mathematics has come to be recognized as the ‘language of science.’ Mathematics is one of the oldest academic subjects and the most mature and well-developed disciplines of basic sciences. Mathematics, the study of quantity, structure, space, and change, is used as an essential tool in natural sciences, Engineering, Medicine and the Social Sciences. The subject seeks to establish truth by arduous deduction, being the core foundation of the field of Engineering, aids to build analytical, reasoning &logical skills of the future engineers and researchers.
The Department of Mathematics provides services to the entire college for UG students, opting Mathematics, who constitute the basic component of our department. The aim of the department is to pursue excellence in Mathematics throughteaching-learning exercises. Weachieve our objectives through the assistance of significantly well qualified and experienced academic staff.

Attainment of Programme outcome, programme specific outcome, and course outcome are evaluated by the department/ institution.
The assessment tools and processes used for measuring the attainment of each of the program outcomes and program specific outcomes are as mentioned below:
Method of assessment of POs / PSOs: The program outcomes and program specific outcomes are assessed with the help of course outcomes of the relevant courses through direct and indirect methods. Direct methods are provided through direct examinations or observations of student knowledge or skills against measurable course outcomes. The knowledge and skills described by the course outcomes are mapped to specific problems on university examination, internal exams and home assignment. Throughout the semester the faculty records the performance of each student on each course outcome.
At the end of each session university conducts examinations based on the syllabus published by university. The course outcomes are measured based on the course attainment level fixed by the program. The Direct mode is used for the same. .Assignments are given at the end of each chapters/unit. The assignments are provided to the students, so that the students will refer the text books and good reference books to find out the answers and understand the expected objective of the given problem. It is the responsibility of the concerned subject teacher to ensure that most students are able to work out the assignments honestly. The questions asked in assignments are mostly aligned with course outcome of the respective subject according to the performance of the student in answering each question. Mapping is carried out with the respective COs for assessing the attainment level of the specific COs of the subject are conducted. The Direct mode is used for the same.
To make conscious mind professionals.
To increase the ratio of competitive learners.
To develop scientific temper in students.
To assess the teaching learning based on feedback.
To make students skill oriented.
To inculcate quality education in students.
To improve efficiency and effectiveness of the higher education in the state and institutions selected under the programme.
Course outcome are evaluated by the department by:
Class Tests.
Class presentations.
Assignments.
