Mathematics and Statistics

The department of Mathematics and Statistics was established in 1964 with commencing of Pre-Degree. From the time of conception itself the Department is a vibrant, innovative unit committed to teaching and research excellence, relevant to mathematical needs of its students and community .The College was raised to first grade by obtaining affiliation for BSc Mathematics in 1967. Prof. T.S. Chacko was the first teacher to get appointment in Mathematics. It was under his able leadership that Dept. of Mathematics acquired great achievements. July 1967 was a milestone   in the history of Mathematics Dept. when the college was raised to First Grade by obtaining affiliation for B.

Due to the high demand for Mathematics P G course, an additional batch of MSc Mathematics was started on the year 2015 under the self financing stream.

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics has thirteen faculty members including three PhD holders. The faculty, with a dedication to teaching, compliments one another with diverse strengths and interests such as mathematics education, applied mathematics, statistics, mathematical research, mathematics history, the aesthetics of mathematics, and the utility of mathematical reasoning. We provide students individual help in their studies and we intend to develop a program whereby students may obtain tutoring as needed, to successfully complete their mathematics courses .We share and promote the belief that mathematics holds an important place in the history of humanity and a valuable one in the future of all human beings

Our Students are given intensive training for acquiring communicative and computer skills through ASAP (Additional Skill Acquisition Programme) introduced by the State Government. They actively participate in various co curricular activities especially in NCC, NSS etc. The focus of the teaching –learning process has become student centric through seminars and assignments. With the purpose of attracting eminent scholars and researchers to the campus the department is organizing national and regional seminars on a regular basis.

Teachers continuously create and implement assessments to monitor student learning and progress towards explicit learning targets, guide instruction, and support programmatic decisions. Incessant showers of success from the Department proved the academic excellence so that our students bagged university ranks in several years for both graduate and post graduate courses. The Department is consistently acquiring more than 90% pass for both BSc and MSc programmes.
