MASTER OF SCIENCE IN APPLIED MATHEMATICS

(CS773)

 

Synopsis

The Masters of Science in Applied Mathematics is a two semester program giving in-depth knowledge of advanced applied mathematics topics and computational tools in three areas, computational mathematics, engineering mathematics and financial and management mathematics. Students are required to do a 20 credit hour dissertation in the second semester. The program aims to sharpen analytical, modelling and problem solving skills for career advancement in industry, business, management, education and other professions wherever mathematics is applied. Graduates will also be well prepared to further their studies at the doctoral program.
