The Department of Mathematics was established in 1969 and has been contributing significantly to the mathematics education and cultivation in this part of the country. It is known by its alumni, who are teaching at all most all reputed National Institutes like IISc, NISER, IISER, Central Universities,  IIT’s, NIT’s  and other universities of the country. The eminent faculty members who have served in this institution are    Prof. G. Das, Prof. S. Pattanayak, Prof. B.B. Panda, Prof. (Mrs.) I. L. Sukla, Prof. C. K. Mohapatra, Late Prof. G. Mohanty,  Prof. R.N. Mohapatra, Prof. J. Sinharoy, Late Prof. (Mrs.) S.L.Mishra, Prof. A.K. Mishra, Prof. (Ms.) N.Das. It is a matter of great pride that Prof. Gadadhar Mishra, presently working in IISC, Bangalore was awarded prestigious  Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prize, who is an alumnus of this department. Prof. C.K. Mohapatra initiated  organization of Mathematics Olympiad camp in the state and has organized many  Olympiad camps. MTTS O-level programme was also organized here.  The department got academic   autonomy in 1996. The course credit semester system was introduced in 1992.  The department offers courses in  M.A./M.Sc., M.Phil. and Ph.D. The present thrust areas of research in the department are Numerical Functional Analysis, Fourier Series, Geometric Functions Theory, Orthogonal Polynomials, Random Series of Functions, Differential Equations, Geometry of Hamiltonian systems.
