**Introduction**
Mathematics is one of the oldest academic subjects and is still very much alive and growing very fast. The advent of computers and data acquisition facilities have stretched the limits of what is possible in Mathematics to all branches of human endeavor. New developments are taking place all the time; some as a result of fresh ideas or reviewing of old techniques and problems from a fresh standpoint and others stimulated by the applications to physical, biological and social sciences, Economics, computing and so on. This has given rise to new IT based techniques of Mathematical study and created new computational methods for the purpose.
Mathematics is fundamental and indispensable to modern science and technology. Progress in other disciplines is often linked to an increased use of Mathematics.
Mathematics is the backbone of all disciplines. It has extensive application in Physics, Engineering, Economics, Geography, Computer Science, Statistics, social sciences and many other fields.
The department of Mathematics started functioning in 2001. Since then, it not only offers courses in Mathematics but its faculty also provides services in the various teaching departments of the university in the relevant subject. There are about one hundred and sixteen students currently enrolled in the department.
