On behalf of the Department of Mathematics, we welcome you to IIT Bhilai.

One of our focuses is to produce engineers equipped with modern mathematics tools with a strong understanding of real-world and engineering problems. One of the central visions of our department is to produce high-quality research and create a healthy environment for research. The faculty members are actively engaged in research along with the teaching responsibilities. Master of Science (M.Sc.) program in Mathematics and Computing started in 2019-20. The department offers Ph.D. programs in various research areas of Mathematics.

At our new campus, the challenge remains to develop better infrastructure to facilitate innovative research opportunities that will benefit society and incorporate modern teaching techniques. Efforts are also made to the spirit of curiosity, thoughtful minds, deep attraction to mathematics, and natural love for humanity/society among the students.

We look forward to seeing you in the department.
