“A mathematician, like a painter or a poet, is a maker of patterns. If his patterns are more permanent than theirs, it is because they are made with ideas.”  G. H. Hardy


To develop and empower Tavua College students for a better tomorrow


To equip students of Tavua College with the necessary mathematical and scientific skills that enables them to pursue their academic interest in the scientific, commercial and technological world and develop them to become efficient and contributing citizen.


With prodigious pleasure, we comfy you to the web page of the Department of Mathematics and Physics. Here you will find valuable information about research, academic programs and career opportunities for mathematicians and physicists.

Modern computation, advances in scientific technology and the increasing production of data have all increased the scope for applications of mathematics well beyond the traditional areas of engineering and the physical sciences, to include fields such as finance, economics, information technology and molecular biology.

Physicists embrace the study of the most basic natural laws, and seek to explain how and why things work on scales ranging from the sub-nuclear, through the everyday, and on to the entire cosmos.

The teaching of Mathematics and Physics is undisputedly an immense task, but when you have a set of determined teachers with a common vision, anything is achievable.

The department has been actively involved in improving academic performance of students by working hard to achieve the set targets.
