About Department:

Department of Mathematics was established in the year 2008. The department provides an outstanding research environment along with teaching for its students in multidisciplinary streams. The department offers academic programmes leading to B.Sc., M.Sc., M.Phil and Ph.D. degrees. Apart from these, department also taking care of mathematics courses of all undergraduate and post graduate programmes of engineering, management and health science departments, currently running in CUTM.

The department is well equipped with highly qualified faculty members and computational labs. The faculty members of department of Mathematics, CUTM are actively working in the following thrust areas:

  • Computational Fluid Dynamics and Numerical Methods
  • Differential and Difference Equations
  • Functional Analysis
  • Soft Computing, Machine Learning and Statistical Inference.

The above programs started in the years 2012 and 2015 respectively. These programs are offered from four campuses of the University, namely, Paralakhemundi, Bhubaneswar, Bolangir and Rayagada. In keeping with the skill orientation of the University, these programs are application oriented with strong skill integration.

The School of Applied Sciences (SoAS) offers Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) program for 3 years, Master of Science (M.Sc.) program for 2 years and M. Phil for 1 years.

Interdepartmental Collaborations:

Besides these programs, the University also offers courses in inter-disciplinary areas of JITM +2 Science(CHSE & CBSE), Bachelor and Masters programs in Management, Computer Applications and Vocational disciplines (ITI) of the (GTET & Skill Developments).

The syllabi of the programmes are duly approved by the Academic Councils of the University under guidance and participation of academic institutions of repute such as NISER, IIT, R&D and industry partners like Infosys, TCS and the like. As a matter of policy, The syllabi are periodically reviewed and updated every three years. The review of B.Sc. Honours programmes are being undertaken this year under this policy.
