About the Department

Mathematics crosses boundaries in a way no other technical subject can. Mathematics is an integral part of the study of engineering regardless of which branch of engineering is chosen.  The department of Mathematics pursues the philosophy of “carrying out education and research on Mathematics that serves as the foundation for various sciences, as well as development of science and society”.

The Department of Mathematics, SRMIST, Ramapuram; was established in the year 2004. It consists of 38 highly qualified faculty members which include 12 Doctorates, 25 Research Scholars and has 11 recognized Ph.D. supervisors.  The 38 academic faculty members in the department are activity involved in research, teaching- learning and public outreach. The Department has a cohesive group of faculty members in the fields of Analysis, Fluid Dynamics, Fuzzy set theory, Graph theory, Differential Equations and are actively engaged in wide-ranging areas of research in Mathematics and allied subjects. The faculty members have published 170 papers in Scopus indexed journals in the last 5 years.  They are keeping their knowledge updated by attending and conducting relevant conferences, seminars and workshops. Department has been organizing National level conferences and workshops every year, for the faculty members in various research fields.

The Mathematics department takes pride in careful personal mentoring. The faculty members are dedicated to teaching and create a first class learning environment in the class room. The students are groomed academically, under careful personal monitoring by the faculty members. The mathematics association ‘FRACTAL’ conducts guest lectures, seminars, competitions periodically thereby encouraging the students to enhance their Mathematical skills and talents. To understand the applications of Mathematics in engineering; the Department has been organizing an interdisciplinary Mathematical Modeling Competition based on Engineering Applications for the students.
