Special features of the Department: 
Course Syllabus: Main Topics

Department is fully equipped with state of the art computing facility required for students till the T.Y. B.Sc. level, in particular  Department is having Mathematica Software for symbolic computation and has  its own laboratory for Applied Components Practicals for T.Y.B.Sc. and these computeres are connected with LAN.


Departmental Computer Lab is made available to students to get hand on with practicals.


Department has its own library where along with text books several other books are kept so that students will benefit from these and span of their studies will encompass various aspects of subject they are studying.


Department offers various projects to students from F.Y. B. Sc. to T.Y.B.Sc. in specially chosen areas of mathematics which in turn inspires them to pursue research in Mathematics.


Department organizes many activities in order to help students understand the subject. These include :

  Talks by experts and experienced academicians, eminent mathematicians from T.I.F.R., I.I.T. Mumbai Universityetc. These include acclaimed Scientist and mathematicians Prof. Jayant Naralikar, Dr J.K Varma, Dr Cowsikamongst many others.
  Bombay Mathematical Colloquium is one the famous organizations in India active in the field of mathematics since its inception in 1936. It organizes discussions on formation of syllabus, review of the same, paper pattern etc. Colloquium also provides a kind of platform for active mathematicians from and around Mumbai.
  Our Department has played a significant role in the history of Bombay mathematical Colloquium and continues to do so.
  We host many of their activities including celebrated Huzurbazar Lecture every year.  

Spotting talented students and providing them guidance is being done by expert academicians in different institutions such as I.I.T., Dept of Mathematics ? University of Mumbai etc.

  Department encourages students to participate in such activities and our students are selected on a regular basis to attend these workshops viz. ? Workshop in Mathematics at IIT Bombay? and ?MT & TS Summer school?

Department has been conducting Seminar Presentation Competition? on inter collegiate level every year.


The faculty members of the department have been invited as resource person by various reputed academic institutions and organizations


Many of our past students have become mathematicians of repute at the national and international level.
