The Department of Mathematics is functioning since July 1968. Along with the college, the department celebrated its Golden Jubilee in the year 2016. The department became a research department in the year 1986. In the year 1999, it became a full-fledged department having B.Sc., M.Sc., M.Phil., and Ph.D., The self - financed section was started in addition to the Aided section during 1986. Apart from the regular stream of programmes, the department started providing additional certificate programmes, LaTeX (2006) and R-Programming(2015).

Faculty of the Department
On board the department has committed and versatile professors in the fields of Operations Research, Differential Equations, Stochastic Processes, Numerical Analysis, Graph Theory, Fuzzy Application, etc., On the whole there are thirty-eight faculty members. All the members are qualified as per UGC norms. Currently ten research guides are guiding their research scholars exceptionally well in the fields of Applied Mathematics and Pure Mathematics.
The Department offers well updated and integrated model curriculum designed by internal and external experts.
UG programme comprises 12 core, 3 elective, 4 allied subjects and a group project.
PG programme comprises 14 core, 5 elective and an individual research project.
Apart from this, Department has MOU with Appalachian State University, USA for staff and student exchange.
More over special job-oriented certification programmes like LaTeX, R-Programming are provided, and PG students are given special coaching to clear CSIR, NET and SET. Many staff and students cleared NET and SET. Many a time, students brought laurels to our department by winning various Inter Collegiate competitions conducted by other educational institutions. Every year more than four hundred new students are admitted and the student strength is more than one thousand two hundred. Our students actively participate in Republic Day Parade. Every year our department students secure university ranks.
More than fifty books are published by our faculty since 1968 in different areas like Operations Research, Numerical Analysis, Statistics, Computer Programming and etc.,
The main strength of our department is research. As on date the department has ten research supervisors. All are guiding research scholars in different thrust areas like Operations Research, Data Envelopment Analysis, Numerical Analysis, Differential Equations, Fuzzy Applications, Graph Theory, Stochastic process etc., Our faculty do have International Research Collaboration since 2000. 42 Scholars received their doctoral degrees and 24 scholars are pursuing.
The Department was awarded twice with the prestigious DST - FIST grant (2005 & 2016). Recently, the Department, along with the other four Departments of Basic Sciences is defined as a STAR Department by the Department of Biotechnology, Government of India, under the STAR College Scheme.
