The world of today, which learns more and more heavily on science and technology, demands more and more mathematical knowledge on the part of more and more people. So literacy in mathematics is a must for a person of tomorrow to live in the technological society. Though mathematics has been defined in many ways such as science of number and space or science of quantity, measurement and spatial relations the scope of mathematics reveals that it is the mother of all sciences.
The symmetry, shapes and patterns in plants and animals tells that the nature embraces mathematics completely. Mathematics reveals hidden patterns that help us to understand the world around us. Now much more than arithmetic and geometry, mathematics today is a diverse discipline that deals with data, measurements and observations from science, with inference, deduction, and proof; and with mathematical models of natural phenomena, of human behaviour, and of social systems.
Mathematics is indispensable in every walks of life and in every field of other learning areas like Computer science, Engineering, Information technology, Economics, Life Sciences etc. Mathematics is one of the few subjects, wherein the higher you go in your studies, the more reasoning and logic is required. This subject influences a lot in personality development. Learning mathematics helps a person develop problem solving skill, logical reasoning, precise thinking, recreational activities etc. Mathematics helps the man to give exact interpretation to his ideas and conclusions. It is the numerical and calculation part of man’s life and knowledge. It plays a predominant role in our everyday life and it has become an inevitable factor for the progress of our present day world.
If you are deeply interested and wish to build your career in mathematics, it is possible to have a good satisfying career ahead. If you choose to pursue a B.Sc. in Mathematics, there will be a lot many options that you will be able to chose from. You can be a Mathematician, Chartered Accountant, Data Analyst, Programmer, Researcher, Teacher etc. The Government organisations like ISRO, DRDO, NAL, DST, IITs, IISc etc. are offering great job opportunities to students with good academic background in mathematics. Besides many private industries like IT Companies, Banks and Insurance, Biotechnology companies etc. are looking for persons who are skilled in mathematics.
The Department of Mathematics was started in the college in the year 2017 offering B.Sc. Mathematics with initial intake of 24 students. Statistics and Computer Science are the complementary courses offered for the programme. The department is offering open courses and complementary courses for other disciplines like Computer Science, Commerce, Geography, Psychology and Management.
