The Department of Mathematics at Manipal Institute of Technology was started in 1957 and provides the students with the mathematical foundation required to analyse all engineering and applied science courses. Apart from this, it also provides the mathematical methods to formulate, analyse and to solve the problems of engineering and management through the higher level and elective courses. The faculty members help students in acquiring a conceptual understanding of the nature and structure of mathematics, its processes, and applications.


The department caters to undergraduate courses through regular and elective subjects, PG courses like M.Tech, MCA, as well as pure and applied mathematics in the other consistent institutions of Manipal Academy of Higher Education.
