Mathematics is a core subject for all Engineering disciplines. It serves as a valuable tool for research and development in all branches of Engineering. In today's world of rapidly advancing technology, mathematical techniques are being increasingly applied in various branches of engineering. Numerical Analysis, Operations Research, Discrete Mathematics are a few areas currently popular with engineers and computer scientists.
The department is committed to the promotion of Mathematics in all its aspects. The aim is not to merely make the student proficient in computational skills, but also to develop in him/her an aptitude for logical reasoning, analytical ability and precision.
Being aware of the utility of the computer, the Department has equipped itself with seven computers and Mathematical Software like MATLAB for the benefit of students and also to promote research interest amongst the staff. Department also has its own library which can be used by the students of different branches.
The Department is headed by Dr. M. Y. Gokhale a reputed teacher and author of several text books on Engineering Mathematics and Computational Methods. He has more than 30 years teaching experience with research publications at national and international levels to his credit. He has also attended various national and international conferences.
At present he is guiding two students for their Ph.D. degree under Pune University, and six students have completed their Ph. D under his guidance.
Dr. Neeta Kankane , senior experienced staff member of the department has co-authored text books on "Discrete Structures and Graph Theory".
Dr. Kankane is also involved in active project guidance for students of B.E. Computer and M.Phil students.At present she is guiding two students for their Ph.D. degree under Pune University.
The Department is entrusted with the responsibility of coordinating First year teaching. All faculty members have excellent report with students and the teachers are very popular and respected by the students.
