The Kurukshetra University was established in 1956 by an act of the state legislature. The Department of Mathematics came into existence in the year 1961. Late Prof. S.D. Chopra was the founder Head of the Department. Since then the Department has made a commendable progress in teaching and research in various branches of Mathematics. It has earned National and International recognition in research in the fields of Algebra, Elasticity, Theoretical Seismology and Analysis.
In the field of Research, the Department has an active group of researchers consisting of teachers and research scholars in various branches of Mathematics.
The Department has produced about Ph.D. students who got placement at respectable positions in teaching, research and administrative organizations.
