The department of mathematics is one of those departments that took off with the inception of the College in 1982; with two lecturers Mr. Ekwe, C. as the Head of Department and Mr. Oragwam, E. Then later in 1988, Dr. A. Mtsem joined the academic staff of the department. However, the joy of having these lecturers in the department did not last long as the older staff who were ministry staff left when the college was granted autonomy leaving Dr. A. Mtsem (currently the oldest lecturer in the department).
Other academic staff like: Mr. J. A. Andortan, Late S. Marshock, Paul Israel (now in Psychology department) and R. Utubaku were them employed in the early nineties. Also, in 2000, Mr. Ikwong, U. B. and Mrs. Aniah-Betiang, E. I. joined the academic staff of the department.
