A team of highly qualified and committed teachers took the Department to great heights by providing a strong mathematical background to the students. The team includes Prof. S. Sivaraman, Prof. C. L. Luies, Prof. T. K. David, Prof. Rev. Fr. K. P. Jose and Prof. Stephen Joseph. In 1995, Prof. S. Sivaraman retired from service and Prof. C. L. Luies succeeded him as the head of the Dept. Prof. T. K.

Mr. Jaison Jacob was appointed as the Head of the department in 2012. Under his dynamic leadership, the department conduced Mathematics camps, workshop in Mathematics, Olympiad in Mathematics and one funded National seminar.

To be a centre of potential excellence that expose young minds to the excitement of invention and discovery in mathematics and thereby enabling students to have a meaningful career in mathemat
To provide a platform for the students to develop their mathematical talents by empowering their ability to think independently and to learn in an interactive way.
