Master of Science in Mathematics

The MSc in Mathematics provides students with a strong background in disciplines such as analysis, algebra, topology and modern applications in computational fields. It ensures that students have the appropriate training necessary to make career choices from a wider range of options after completing the program.

Through a variety of seminars, workshops and presentations, students are introduced to the essential ingredients of doing research as well as a variety of open problems. The program consists of coursework, seminars and a Major Research Paper, which is completed within a year.
