Welcome to the Department of Mathematics IIT Roorkee. The department has a strong and dedicated team of faculty members having expertise in various areas of pure and applied Mathematics, Statistics, and Operations Research. The department has around 100 Ph.D. scholars, including many of them admitted through the funding of various sponsored research projects. Besides this, our department hosts several postdoctoral fellows. We hope that whether you are a prospective student, a visitor, or a potential faculty candidate, this website will be informative.
The Department of Mathematics attained its present status of an independent department in 1960. Growing steadily, the department runs its own Undergraduate and Postgraduate programs in Mathematics. The department also offers Ph.D. degrees in various areas of Pure and Applied Mathematics, Operations Research and Statistics. Department has collaborations with different National and International Organizations in various fields of Mathematics. Besides the central Computing facilities of the Institute, the department has a state-of-the-art computer laboratory. At present, the faculty strength of the department is 27. The Faculty members publish high-quality research publications and are also involved in sponsored and consultancy research.
