Mathematics

The Department of Mathematics, established in the year 2002 and currently headed by Dr. Annamma Abraham, has evolved into a team of nine well qualified, experienced and dedicated faculty members out of which five are doctorate holders and four are pursuing their Ph.D programme.

The department conducts courses in Engineering Mathematics, Discrete Mathematical Structures, Graph Theory & Combinatorics, and Advanced Mathematics for I and II year BE students, and Applied Mathematics for M. Tech. (Machine Design) students. The department also identifies students who need extra mentoring in mathematics and conducts remedial classes in order to enhance their performances. The streamlined and sincere efforts by the team have resulted in the department consistently obtaining excellent performances with many students scoring 100% in the VTU examinations.

The department of Mathematics is a recognized VTU Research Centre for the Ph.D programme.


Vision

To empower students to excel in engineering and research by imparting equitable Mathematics education of the highest quality.

Mission

To impart quality education in mathematics through innovative methods, thus laying a strong foundation for the study of engineering subjects. To enhance the students critical thinking, computational and problem solving skills.

Program Educational Objectives

  1. To establish an excellent Research centre in Mathematics.
  2. To obtain excellent results in the VTU examinations.
  3. To conduct seminars for the benefit of staff and students.

Program Outcomes

  1. Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of Mathematics, Science, Engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems
  2. Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex Engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, Natural sciences and engineering sciences
  3. Design/development of solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  4. Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the Information to provide valid conclusions
  5. Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern Engineering and IT tools including prediction and modelling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
  6. The engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
  7. Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for Sustainable development
  8. Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
  9. Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings
  10. Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering Community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports And design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  11. Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the Engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and Leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
  12. Life-long learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological
