History

After the formal announcement of the commencement of M.A./M.Sc. classes in Economics, English, History, Mathematics, and Nepali, on July 14, 1959 A.D. (30th Ashadh 2016 B.S), Central Department of Mathematics was established on September 20, 1959 A.D. (4th Aswin 2016 B.S.) at the University College in Tripureswor with only half a dozen students and a similar number of faculty members.

Prof. Aasutosh Ganguly was the first head of department; other faculty members at the time included professors Keshav Dev Bhattarai, Govinda Dev Pant and Dhup Ratna Bajracharya. The first batch of students graduated from the department in 1961. Ever since, in spite of tumultuous twists and turns of the education system according to the socio-political changes of the country, there has been a steady output from the department, which not only has climbed up to the highest echelons of public offices, but also has fanned out to various nooks and corners of the country, manning schools and campuses in the form of teachers and lecturers. A number of graduates from the department are also working in foreign countries as teachers.
