The Department of Mathematics was established in the year 1963. In the first year the Department of Mathematics (DoM for short) taught 120 students. The number of students grew in leaps and bounds year after year and now after its existence for over 5 decades the DoM has to its credit to have taught more than 10,000 students during the last 5 academic years. Beginning with a modest strength of three faculty members in its first year of inception the DoM has grown in strength and now boasts of having twenty three (23) faculty members of which twenty (20) are with Ph. D. degree and three (3) are pursuing their Ph. D. degree. The DoM is involved with teaching activities for UG / PG / global electives and is recognized as research centre for pursuing Ph.D in Mathematics under VTU, the affiliating University. Under this research centre, faculty members are undertaking funded research projects and consultancy work, publishing research papers in referred/peer reviewed journals, organizing workshops and conferences.
