Dr. P.Usha
Professor and Head
The department of Mathematics came into existence together with S.I.T in 1963. Right from its inception the department has striven to set high standards of teaching. The department has succeeded in this endeavor over the years.
The department of Mathematics offers programs for both graduate and post graduate students, by providing the foundation in mathematics that is crucial to the education of engineering students.
At present the department has 17 committed teaching faculty members, among them 10 are with doctorial degree and one member on its non-teaching staff. The department continuously reviews and monitors the curriculum of its academic programs.
The department of Mathematics has a research center under VTU. The Mathematics R&D center so far produced 4 Ph.D. scholars. Currently 13 are pursuing their doctoral degrees. Active research is being pursued in the areas of Fluid dynamics, Magneto Hydrodynamics, Graph Theory, Fuzzy Topology, Soft Topology, Finite Element methods, Natural convection problems, Heat Mass transfer, Finite difference Method, Hydrodynamic lubrication. Faculty members in the department collaborate with other research groups in the college.
The department has organized a National conference on "Recent Trends in applied mathematics" (RTAM-2013) during 7th and 8th of June 2013 and an invited talk on "Distinguishable sets in graph theory" by Dr. P.J.Slater, Professor, Dept. of Mathematical sciences and computer science, University of Alabama, USA on 15th June 2013.
In the coming decade, apart from strengthening the existing areas, the department intends to develop areas related to mathematical aspects of scientific computing in all its manifestations. The efforts in these directions will lead to greater collaboration with other disciplines of the Institute at a level higher than at present.
To provide every under graduate and post graduate student of SIT, the required mathematical knowledge for their professional career and further study in engineering.
Short Range Goals
To achieve excellent results in examinations, to create awareness among students in recent trends in mathematics by organizing quizzes and Olympiads, to take up sponsored projects from funding agencies such as VTU, AICTE & DST and to have more interdisciplinary interaction to pursue applied research.
Long Range Goals
The department has a long range goal of getting recognition as a leading department in curriculum development and professional activities at the regional and national level.
