Carl Friedrich Gauss referred to Mathematics as the Queen of the Sciences.
Mathematics is used throughout the world as an essential tool in many
fields including Natural science, Engineering, Medicine, Finance and the
social sciences and Applied Mathematics.
Mathematics prepares you for careers as actuaries, computer scientists,
mathematicians, statisticians, teachers and more. Advanced skills in
mathematics are necessary in many science-related careers. A degree in
mathematics is also a strong background for jobs in the computer
Industries as well as many related fields
For those with a
substantial background in mathematics and passion for numbers, an
unlimited number of career opportunities are available.
A graduate with Mathematics can opt for one of the following careers
- Aeronautical engineer
- Higher education lecturer
- Investment analyst
- Research scientist (maths)
- Secondary school teacher
- Chartered accountant
- Chartered certified accountant
- Chartered management accountant
- Corporate investment banker
- Financial risk analyst
- Operational researcher

The Department of Mathematics organized and conducted their annual 2-day Fest “Mithimatica” on the 30th and 31st of January 2019. The four main events of the fest were the Seminar Competition and Poster Competition on Day One, followed by Mathematical Games and the Quiz Competition on Day Two.
The Chief Guests for the inauguration ceremony were our alumini Ms. Sonali Parekh and Mr. Nikhil Singh. Ms Sonali Parekh won two gold medals for the highest CPI in MSc. Mathematics at IIT Gandhinagar and is currently working on the Content team at Scholr. Mr. Nikhil Singh completed his M.S. in Software Engineering from BITS PILANI and is currently and is currently the Senior Project Engineer at Wipro. Both the Chief Guests addressed the gathering and spoke about the importance of Mathematics in all fields and the various Career opportunities available to students of Mathematics.
The Principal Dr. Rajpal Shripat Hande addressed the gathering and spoke about the importance of such fests that encourage and motivate college students while pursuing their studies. Students of 2017-18 were felicitated by the Principal for their performance in the T.Y.B.Sc. Examinations. The students also interacted with the audience and spoke about their experience in Mithibai and how it has helped them after graduation.
The fest began with the Seminar Competition with students presenting on a variety of topics and applications of Mathematics like Coding and cryptography, Special Relativity, Google search algorithm, Duckworth-Lewis system, Gaming etc. Posters were well made and informative. The IPL Auction game that was newly introduced this year was very much enjoyed by the students. Over 200 students from all streams participated in the Games. The fest ended with the Quiz competition conducted during the second session on Day 2. There was an interactive feedback session conducted at the end wherein students expressed how the festival helps broaden their views regarding the importance, scope and applications of Mathematics and that they look forward to taking part in such fests again in the coming year.

VIDEO LECTURE SCREENING
The Department of Mathematics, Mithibai College hosted a screening of the video series “Essence of Linear Algebra” created by Grant Sanderson. This screening specifically benefited Second Year and Third Year students with Mathematics (and/or Statistics/Physics) as their subject(s). It was held on 15th September 2017. The topics covered included Introduction to Vectors, Linear Combinations and Spans, Linear Transformations, Matrix Multiplication, 3D Transformations, Determinants, Inverses and some important Subspaces, Non-Square Matrices. Many students attended the same and also engaged in group discussions following the screening.
- The Department of Mathematics organized a guest lecture by Dr. Ananth Narayan Hariharan, Professor from IIT on Mathematics and its applications on the 27th of August 2017.
- Dr. Ujwala Deshmukh received trophy of First best paper “Application of Hamiltonian Graphs” in UGC sponsored two day conference on "Application of Statistics in commerce, Economics & social Science” on 8th and 9th January 2016. It is accepted for publication in a blind peer review International Journal.
- We conduct remedial lectures for Madhava Competition, a national level competition for the maths students. The aim of this, is to prepare students for various competitive exams such as entrance exams for IIT, TIFR, actuaries. This may facilitate them to appear for various government exams also such as UPSC/MPSC.
