35. SWOC analysis of the department and Future Plans

Strength

  • Mathematics department has a departmental Library for the students & teachers.
  • Good faculty members associated with research activities.
  • Percentage of the students attending the classes is very high.
  • Classes are organized regularly.
  • Discipline is maintained in the dept.
  • The students have potential to opt. new concepts of Mathematics & ensure their capabilities in day to day modern challenges.
  • The Research Scholars engage the classes due to shortage of teaching faculties.

Weakness

  • Our dept. feels shortage of supporting staff like computer operator.
  • Lack of ICT Facility in the department.
  • Lack of Astronomical Telescope for PG Students & high profile Softwares.
  • The department has no facilities for higher research.

Opportunity

  • Job potential for Mathematics students is very high; many of them joined as PO and clerks in Nationalized Banks & school teachers of different levels.
  • Very Scoring subject for all competitive exams.
  • To facilitate with Higher Education.
  • We provide ample opportunity to students to excel in every areas of life.
  • Real research of any subject in social sciences is impossible without mathematics.

Challenges

  • Our department is facing challenges incompletion of syllabus of B.Sc Hons. & M.Sc due to shortage of teaching facility and lack of sufficient rooms.
  • Integration of subject with the emerging environment that is application of the subject with industries and Social life.
  • The emphasis on applicability of mathematics in real life is the challenge of the hour & emerging Horizon.
  • Conceptual Framework for the better understanding of the subject.
  • To organize extension lectures by eminent resource person.
  • We have to form a strong cell for generating employment opportunity to students.
  • Example and application of each definition and theory of Mathematics should be included in the syllabus.

Future Plans
