Department Of Mathematics
Department of mathematics is having six faculty members (One Professor, One Associate Professor & four Assistant Professor). All are highly qualified & well versed in their academic fields. Almost all teachers have their published research papers & some have guided research candidates for the award of Ph.D. degree. Recently, the faculty members of the department took decision to start Ph.D.courses in mathematics from the session 2009 onwards.Faculty members are already engaging classes of mathematics in M.Tech. courses in the different core subjects of engineering branches with modern syllabus which includes computer related topics of high standard as per need of the present time.Some new courses in U.G. syllabus have also been introduced which are of much need at present. For example, we have introduced recently Discrete Mathematics, Graph Theory on U.G.syllabus.We have in our mind to start some more new courses in mathematics when some faculty members are appointed in this department.Faculty members are also attending time-to-time summer classes of mathematics courses related to modern subjects with software tools in different institute i.e.NITs & IITs.In future we also planning to establish CT Lab. CT Lab classes are running at present in other departmental laboratory.Regarding utilization of equipments in this department we have to say that teachers are using computers provided to them for their teaching purposes. Photocopier is also very useful for different day to day work in the department.
