Department of Mathematical Sciences began its journey as a section to assist engineering departments of the institute which, in the true sense, pioneered engineering education in the Indian Nation. It soon acquired the status of a full-fledged department in 1985.Its importance lies in the fact that it caters to the needs of the undergraduate as well as post-graduate students of the Institute. In addition, the department runs its own 5 year integrated M Tech course in Mathematics & Computing.
The department aims to give emphasis to research in analysis, algebra, topology, mathematical transforms etc. Be it fluid dynamics, gas dynamics, biomechanics, fracture mechanics, digital image processing, generalised thermo-elasticity, heat and mass transfer, cryptology and many more fields of applied nature, department’s contribution is enormous in terms of numerous research papers published in reputed international journals over the past few decades. Computing is the glamour of the department. It annexes several dimensions in terms of new and growing areas of research and further facilitates simulation of mathematical models constructed for interdisciplinary areas.
