Department of Mathematics


(Established by the State Legislature Act XII of 1956)

(“A” Grade, NAAC  Accredited)


Department: Mathematics

The Kurukshetra University was established in 1956 by an act of the state legislature. The Department of Mathematics came into existence in the year 1961. Late Prof. S.D. Chopra was the founder Head of the Department. Since then the Department has made a commendable progress in teaching and research in various branches of Mathematics. It has earned National and International recognition in research in the fields of Algebra, Elasticity, Theoretical Seismology and Analysis.  

In the field of Research, the Department has an active group of researchers consisting of teachers and research scholars in various branches of Mathematics.

The Department has produced about Ph.D. students who got placement at respectable positions in teaching, research and administrative organizations.

The Department has organized number of Seminars/Symposia/Conferences with the help of funding agencies like UGC, DST and others. The Department has also organized summer schools. Number of Research Projects funded by UGC/CSIR/DST/NBHM has been completed successfully in the Department.

Many teachers of the department had been abroad in connection with their research activities like attending International Conferences, Visiting Scientists, Commonwealth Fellowship and other assignments.

The Department has been supported by DST under FIST Scheme. The Department gets special assistance from National Board of Higher Mathematics, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research being a Centre of recognition at a National level.
