Mathematics & Scientific Computing

The department of Mathematics & Scientific Computing came into existence in August-2009. Previously, this department was a part of the formerly department of Applied Sciences & Humanities, which came into existence in 1986. Presently this department has 13 regular faculty members from diverse areas of specializations in Mathematics, Statistics, Operations Research, Image Processing and Cryptography & Network Security. We have developed quality infrastructure to fulfil the needs of various science and engineering main streams. The Department has a vibrant research atmosphere backed up by good infrastructural facilities. We have a mathematical computational laboratory consisting of computing machines and Softwares (MATLAB, Mathematica, MathCad and SYSTAT etc.). This department admits students in M. Sc. (Mathematics &Scientific Computing) and for Ph.D. programmes in various specializations of Mathematics & Statistics. The department also offers open elective courses for undergraduate and postgraduate engineering students. This department has been contributing a lot for the overall development of the institution since its inception. Specially, this department has done extremely well in R&D activities. This department is going to offer B. Tech four-year programme in Mathematics and Computing from next academic session starting from July 2020.


In a current economic scenario, employment opportunities for graduate, post graduate and Ph.D.’s in Mathematics and Scientific Computing are excellent both in academics as well as in industry. This is a new era (as far as job opportunities are concerned) for UG/PG and PhD degree holders in Mathematics and Scientific Computing, especially in the fields of banking, insurance, IT industries apart from teaching jobs. For those inclined towards a research career, many positions are available in research institutions and universities. For those who wish to pursue a teaching career, well-paying teaching positions are available in plenty in private/public science and engineering institutions. And for those who are willing to apply mathematics and scientific computing to practical problems, there has been a dramatic change in the job opportunities over the past few years in India. Many financial services companies, research labs of multinational companies and others reputed organisations are recruiting people with mathematics and computing background. Based on the strength of the department in both pure and applied mathematics as well as scientific computing, our students get a balanced and rigorous training in various aspects of mathematics and computing.
