The Department of Mathematics was set up at Loyola in 2007, and offers B. Sc Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science.
"It feels nice to work at a department where staff and students strive for the same goal; academic excellence."- Dr. K. Vijayalakshmi
Head of Department
The inter-disciplinary department of Mathematics (Mathematics, Statistics, & Computer Science) was set up in the year 2007 to give students an opportunity to study mathematics in association with the more employment-friendly fields of statistics and computer science.
Some key statistics for the Department of Mathematics (Mathematics, Statistics, & Computer Science):
we offer 1 UG course of 3 years in B.Sc Mathematics, Statistics & Computer Science
with a cumulative experience of 100 years
hand-picked for their exceptional intellect
most of whom concoct new algorithms
The department aims at providing students with a course that is as specialized as it is general, allowing them access to a plethora of study and work opportunities after graduation. Here are a few things that we do differently:
The specialized mathematics laboratory contains 60 computers equipped with latest computing and learning aids like Mathematica, Matlab, etc, along with a variety of statistical software.
Math 'Zine is a venture by our students to inculcate an interest in mathematics amongst the students of the Academy.
Students are required to undertake major projects in all three fields during their final year. They work under approved public and private enterprises, in areas such as statistical analysis, mathematical group theory, and computer languages.
Our excellent infrastructure - the mathematics labs, a library sponsored by the National Board of Higher Mathematics, and internet labs – is as immersive as it is impressive. Drop by for a visit.
Our students have always made it easy for us to put in the extra effort to make this department top-notch. A few notable achievements:
Undergraduate course B.Sc. Mathematics, Statistics & Computer Science starts at Loyola Academy
The department conducts a workshop titled “AN APPROACH TO MATHEMATICS-2008”
The Department of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science organized a one day seminar on “Applications of Mathematics” on 22 August, 2015 and Dr. Kishore Kumar was the guest speaker.
