Furthermore, courses in Advanced Mathematics are offered to postgraduate students of various branches of engineering.

For undergraduate  students admitted in the year 2014 onwards, minor specialization courses are being  offered in the fields of Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Management.

The department has well equipped laboratories to impart practical training to the students in the field of Physics, Chemistry and Engineering Geology. A Computing lab has also been set up recently in the Department, which is also equipped with facilities (English edge software) enabling it to be used as a language lab.The purpose of the language lab is to brush-up the communication skills of students for transforming their personality.

The department provides facilities for research leading to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in the fields of Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Commerce, Finance & Management and Engineering Geology. In spite of the fact that the Ph.D. Program at the insitute is quite young, there are  20 students at present pursuing their Ph. D. programs out of which 2 have already submitted their thesis. In addition 9  students have already been awarded Ph.D degrees.
