In this college, the mathematics as basic to engineering studies was given importance from the very beginning. In the competative examination for admission to the college, ability in mathematics was made the decisive criterion for selection. The syllabus of the subject Mathematics was prepared according to the requirement of the engineering subjects. Mathematics is taught up to fourth semester classes in the under graduate level. The paper Graph Theory is taught in 7th semester as elective subject in the department of Computer Science. Linear Algebra and Functional Analysis are also offered as special paper to the 7th semester students of Electronics & Telecommunication Department. Besides teaching Mathematics in under graduate course, the faculty members of the department also teach the subject at the post graduate level in Civil and Mechanical Engineering departments. The objective of the department is to impart quality education to the engineering students in mathematics so that they can apply the mathematical knowledge to the problems arising in various disciplines of engineering, Science and technology. At present the department consists of eight faculty members with Dr. Jitendra Kr. Nath as Head of the department. All of the faculty members have participated in number of national and state level seminars and workshops and published number of research papers to their credit in different journals.
