About the department

The Department of Mathematics was established in the year 1980 located in the serene campus of Dr. A.I.T. The Classes in Dr. Ambedkar Institute of Technology commenced with the first lecture delivered on “Analytical Solid Geometry” by the Late Professor R. S. Ramaswamy, Head the Department of Mathematics during 1980-1993, and the department is running on the same spirit since then. A strong knowledge of Mathematics creates an efficient Engineer. The faculty of the Department of Mathematics has been striving to address this need by teaching Engineering Mathematics Courses for both UG and PG courses by framing a demand driven syllabus. The department is a first among the various achievements; the first to deliver a lecture in Dr. A.I.T;  the first department in which all staff had their doctorate degrees; the first department to start a Research Center in Mathematics in VTU; the first department to produce a PhD awardee in Mathematics under VTU; the first department to produce a large number of research papers in reputed international journals along with a constant maintenance of an average of 87% overall results in both UG and PG. At present the department has 13 full time faculty members who are actively engaged in teaching, research and other academic activities.

Long Terms Goal: PG courses in Mathematics

Short Term Goals: To Introduce new topics and Inter departmental electives of current interest.
