The Department of Mathematics at Amritapuri campus came into existence in 2002. The department have a group of highly experienced and fully dedicated faculty passionate about Mathematics and its applications. At present, the department have 16 dedicated faculty members out of which four possess PhD and rest are pursuing PhD from our Institution, as well from NITs, and IIST etc. Many of our alumni have joined prestigious institutes for PhD and a good number are well-placed. Experts from Amrita, CIR department train and help the students in their placements. For the final year projects, department send students to Amrita research centres as well as many other reputed institutions such as IITs, NITs, and ISI etc. The Department provides cultural value based education to students.
The department also arranges workshops and seminars by inviting eminent and experienced faculties from prestigious national and international institutes for the benefit of students and teachers. Programs are well-appreciated by academicians and scholars everywhere. The Five-year Integrated M.Sc. (Mathematics/Physics) program started in 2006 with an intake of 40 students. This unique and intense program that runs in a collaboration with the Physics department has been designed to impart strong theoretical and experimental knowledge in both Mathematics and Physics. At the end of the 3rd year, students have the liberty to bifurcate or can opt for Physics or Mathematics stream in our program. The department sends students to attend short-term training programmes like MTTS, and other Seminars and Workshops etc.
Very enthusiastic students are admitted for the 2-Year PG program every year. They have similar requirements as that of the 2-year PG program of the Integrated M.Sc. Mathematics.
