Lady Doak College

About - Mathematics Department

In 1948, when the college was first affiliated to the University of Madras, it was only a second grade institution offering Mathematics Intermediate Course as one of the subjects and was subsequently raised to the status of a First Grade College in 1951 offering the Two Year B.A. Degree Course in Mathematics. In 1957, three – year B.Sc., degree course in Mathematics was started. The College has been involved in the College Science Improved Programme sponsored by the University Grants Commission, since 1970. From 1970 onwards B.Sc. Mathematics is offered as a Special Mathematics course as more Mathematics papers are offered in the place of the language papers in the second year. A post Graduate program leading to M.Sc., Mathematics with specialization in Computer Application was started in 1986. Yet another stream of B.Sc. special Mathematics with specialization in Computer Application under the self – financed scheme was introduced in 2003.

Being part of an autonomous college, the curriculum, is planned and updated from time to time with the help of experts in the Board of studies and Academic Council. Independent project work at Under Graduate and post Graduate levels by all final year students as an integral part of curriculum encourages the students to pursue recent Mathematical topics and appreciate them. The college subscribes for more than 10 national and international journals in Mathematics to expose the students to the new topics in the field of Mathematics. Project presentation and Viva Voce as parts of evaluation of the projects equip the students with confidence in facing interviews. Star gazing sessions with the help of telescope gives practical enlightenment to the students who have opted for astronomy.
