About the Department

The Department of Mathematics, established in the year 2002 and currently headed by Dr. Karabi Sikdar, has evolved into a team of Ten well qualified, experienced and dedicated faculty members out of which eight are doctorate holders and two are pursuing their Ph.D programme.

The department conducts courses in Engineering Mathematics and Advanced Mathematics for I and II year BE students, and Applied Mathematics for M.Tech. (Computer Science & Engineering, 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.

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

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.

  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.
  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
