The Department of Mathematics started with a humble beginning in the year 1968 with one combination at the undergraduate level with Mathematics as one of the major subjects and a single faculty member. It has grown into six combinations in undergraduate level with nine faculty members. The year 2009 marked a great leap in starting the postgraduate course in Mathematics with tracks in Applied, Pure and Computational Mathematics. The main objective of the Department is to sharpen the mathematical skills along with inculcating an aptitude for research in mathematics and thereby training the students to meet the challenges of the dynamic subject.


Towards holistic formation of youth, grounded in excellence and to create an academically sound environment that nurtures, motivates and inspires excellence in research and teaching in Mathematics along with concern for society.


To promote the realistic growth of women in all frontiers of life and empower them to be agents of liberative transformation and mathematical proficiency.

Failing to do so, will result in the student being debarred from sitting for further recruitment drives. Exceptions will be made at the sole discretion of the Placement Cell only in genuine cases. Such cases/reasons to be formally communicated to the Placement Office over mail at least one day prior to the drive.
  11. The student has a choice not to participate in the recruitment process of a company after attending the Pre-Placement Talk. If she decides to continue, then she will be bound by the College Placement Policy to attend the rest of the recruitment process of the company as stated above.

  13. While the Placement Cell will do its due diligence and bring in the right companies, it is the responsibility of every student to check the company profile, eligibility, Job Profile and the Job Role before applying. The same will also be mailed and/or updated on the Notice Boards or social media groups.
    a. Ex 1- If a company requires the applicant to have an average of 70%, be well assured that you meet the criteria before applying to that company.
    b. Ex 2- If the company requires you to have NO standing arrears/backlogs at the time of attending the placement process, kindly DO NOT APPLY to the company if you do not meet this criterion.

If, after being selected by a company, for some reason the student is not satisfied either with the pay, the timings, work allotted, etc during onboarding, she will need to take it up with the concerned within the company. The Placement Cell will not be able to intervene in internal matters. However, it is important that the students reach out to us in case there are major deviations from the terms mentioned by the company at the time of recruitment.
  15. A student can apply to as many companies as she wants and appear for interviews until the first job is secured. A student will be considered to have secured a job if her name appears in the final select list of a company.
