Study of Mathematics includes quantity, structure, space and change. Mathematicians seek out patterns, formulate new conjuncture and establish truth by rigorous deduction from appropriately chosen axioms and definitions. Mathematics is used as an essential tool in natural sciences, engineering, medicine and the social sciences.
The department of Mathematics was started in 1955 with an undergraduate program. Under the autonomous system, the department is launching a graduate program from this academic year. Studying mathematics develops skills such as arguing logically and rigorously, formulating and solving problems and analysing data. Consequently, Mathematics Majors perform well in competitive exams like UPSC, GPSC, TAS, CAT, GMAT banking exams, etc. So students who want to pursue M.B.A, M.C.A, P.G.D.C.A. or to appear for banking and insurance sector exams prefer to take mathematics as a main subject. Students who want to pursue a career in computers or IT also opt for mathematics.
A bachelor’s degree in mathematics prepares one for jobs in statistics, actuarial sciences, mathematical modelling and mathematics education as well as for graduate school leading to a research career in mathematics or statistics. A strong background in mathematics is also necessary for research in many areas of computer science and social sciences.

The department sends students every year to the mathematical Training and Talent Search programmes (M.T.T.S.) supported by the National Board of Higher Mathematics.
The Master’s Program in Mathematics gives an opportunity to the students to broaden their knowledge in the subject with a focus on applications. The programme is designed to ensure that students are able to do well in competitive exams. The understanding of the different modules will prepare the students to take up teaching profession and for careers in the government sector, corporates, and research institutes. The programme will also enthuse students to pursue their doctoral studies. The prerequisite for a student to enrol in this programme is to have an undergraduate degree in Mathematics with a minimum aggregate percentage of 60%
- Graph Theory
- Approximation Theory with Positive Linear Operators
- Functional Analysis
- Quantum Calculus
