Master in Mathematics and Statistics (Scientific Computing)

General

Programme Description

The MS programs in Mathematics & Scientific Computing and in Statistics & Scientific Computing prepare students for careers in research, applications, and teaching. Students choose courses from two areas of concentration for their coursework: Mathematics and Computations or Statistics and Computations.

Students are required to successfully qualify eight courses (4 compulsory and 4 electives) each of 3 credit hours duration. On successful completion of MS, coursework students will be allowed to work on a 6 credit hour thesis on a subject of interest and on the availability of the faculty. Students will be required to qualify Final (Comprehensive) Examination, as well as write and defend a thesis.

The MS Programme takes usually two years to complete and students must pass GRE/NTS exam prior to the completion of the degree.

Eligibility

16 Years of education in Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics or Statistics any relevant field.
