The department of Mathematics was established in 1948. The Department focuses on making its students strive for excellence in acquiring basic knowledge and skills in mathematics, and thereby get motivated to pursue higher studies.
- To conduct a degree course in mathematics which is intellectually challenging and rigorous, ensuring that the graduates are well-placed to pursue postgraduate studies or to enter employment;
- To provide students with friendly pastoral and academic support which will help them develop their capabilities in an environment where both independent study and interaction with staff and fellow students are encouraged.
On successful completion of the studies, the student should -
- have learnt to assimilate substantial knowledge in mathematics
- have the potential to apply critical and analytical reasoning to mathematical problems,
- have developed problem solving skills,
- have had the opportunity to take options outside their main area of study, through add-on courses
- have the ability to understand and present mathematical arguments and rigorous proofs,
- have the ability to comprehend basic levels of abstraction in the study of mathematics,
- have had the opportunity to enhance investigative, communication and presentation skills.
