About the Department of Mathematics

The creation, updation and application of knowledge have become keys to the success of industries, organisations and individuals.

Mathematics is an integral part of the study of engineering regardless of the discipline. There are various mathematical tools applied in various branches of engineering. A two-pronged (dual) approach of the Department is to underpin the essential mathematics and also to excite interest in engineering. It is widely used in almost all the disciplines of Engineering.

The School of Technology aims at providing national and international Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Doctoral education. The graduate engineers from the School will stand apart in identifying research that addresses the big challenges in the world. The school adopt an educational philosophy using basic research and this novel discovery as the foundation will translate and enhance this research into manifold applications beneficial to the society. The goal of mathematics department is not very much different than that of the school of technology. The role of mathematics in each of the goals of the school cannot be ignored, since it lies in the very root of every engineering discipline that grows to a huge tree, where each branch has a different theme and contributes to various engineering disciplines

 

 

VISION

The departments' long-term vision is to prepare young minds to be future scientists and entrepreneurs, harnessing the potential of mathematics for the benefit of society, through quality research and rigorous curriculum designed to achieve a seamless transition from fundamental mathematics to exploitable technology.

 

MISSION

The department's mission is to provide solid mathematical foundations and to prepare students to be responsible members of society with moral and ethical values, as well as to have a solid mathematical understanding relevant to today's world.

 

Objectives

  • To provide opportunity to the larger mass of faculty to pursue research and innovation in the various spheres of Engineering.  
  • To impart fluency in the use of mathematics for practical problem solving for researchers of mathematics as well as engineering.
  • To throw light on the applicability of the mathematics in engineering and exemplify valuable activities undertaken by engineers.
  • To draw a large and diverse community of participants from academia, industry and research institutes through seminars, workshops, STTPs, symposia and conferences.
  • To connect mathematicians with applied scientists in an environment conducive to interdisciplinary collaboration by organizing workshops.

 

 

HISTORY

The Department of Mathematics was formed in 2011, just after the formation of SOT in 2010. The Department has a strong academic base of 13 faculties all holding Ph.D. from various prestigious Universities / Institutions. In order to cater the need of present engineering scenario, the Department has experts in various fields ranging from Analysis to Mathematical Modelling, Stochastic Optimization, Solid Mechanics and FGM, Performance measure of distribution warehouses and Software Reliability, Magnetohydrodynamics, Computational Biology, Data assimilation in numerical models of the ocean, Numerical Reservoir Simulation, Applied Geophysics & Geostatistics, Fuzzy Sets, IFS, Fixed Point Iteration Methods, Financial Mathematics, Sea Age Dynamics, Sea-ice dynamics, Polar studies, Ocean models, non-Newtonian fluid flows and heat transfer: Analytical and numerical treatment, Theory of Relativity are some of the fields these faculties have been working in. This list ensures that almost no applied area is left untouched.

The department at this juncture is interested not only in expanding the activities of the university but also rationalize its strength to extend research and promote research-related activities in the various spheres of Engineering.

Research Focus

The creation, updating and application of knowledge have become keys to the success of industries, organisations and individuals. In today’s world, the changes and developments are rapid. Our education system is highly dynamic, so we too need to keep ourselves updated.

In order to cater the need of present engineering scenario, the Department has experts in various fields ranging from analyses to mathematical modelling. Stochastic Optimization, Solid Mechanics and FGM, Performance measure of distribution warehouses and Software Reliability, Magnetohydrodynamics Computational Biology, Data assimilation in numerical models of ocean, Numerical Reservoir Simulation, Applied Geophysics & Geostatistics, Fuzzy Sets, IFS, Fixed Point Iteration Methods, Financial Mathematics, Sea Age Dynamics,Sea-ice dynamics, Polar studies, Ocean models, non-Newtonian fluid flows and heat transfer: Analytical and numerical treatment are some of the fields these faculties have been working in. This list ensures that almost no applied area is left untouched.

The department at this juncture is interested not only in expanding the activities of University but also rationalize its strength to extend research and promote research related activities in the various spheres of Engineering.
