Mathematics

The Department of Mathematics commenced functioning in 1925 with the introduction of Group I at the Intermediate level with a single faculty: Prof. V.A. Mahalinga Iyer, followed by Prof. M.T. Kurian who was appointed in 1926. The Mathematics section became a full-fledged department in the year 1928 with the introduction of the B.A Mathematics. Prof.T. A. Satagopan MA from Madras Christian College took charge as the Head. Prof. P.C. Joseph (1939-1946) joined the Department later and guided the destinies of the Department with firmness and flexibility. When Prof. M.T. Kurian retired in 1962, Prof. O.C. Kuriakose took over as the Head. During his tenure as Head, in 1965, MSc Mathematics programme commenced. After his retirement in 1978, the mantle of the Head of the Department fell on Prof. S. Abraham. After his retirement in 1991 Prof. M.A. Manuel, M. Prof. M.Venkataraman, Prof M C Varghese, Prof. G. Jayarajan, Prof. Raju V Kuttickal, Dr. Joseph Mathews, Prof Antony Mathew, Dr Rajan K, Prof Zacharia Varkey, Dr Antony Mathews  presided over the Department in turn. The other renowned faculty of the department includes Prof M C Joseph, Prof V S Varkey, Prof K S Venkitachalam Iyer, Prof K E Paulose, Prof T Jacob Mathew, Prof V A Sebastian and Prof K J Joseph. Our journey to centenary is headed by Dr Shine C Mathew. The Department celebrated it Navathi in the academic year 2017-18. The Department became approved research center in Mathematics under Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam in 2018.
