Developing Researchers and Educators to Support the Foundations of Science and Technology

With rapid progress in science and technology, the fusion of outcomes in science and technology has led to major advances in scientific technology. The Graduate School of Science gives equal weight to both teaching and research, thereby providing graduates with a broad knowledge base in pure and applied cutting-edge science in three distinct course areas: Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences, Physics and Chemistry. Each course covers tuition and research in both theoretical and experimental science and provides a basic grounding as the foundation for specialization along with a comprehensive sense of discernment and application based on a broad outlook. The Doctoral Program includes tuition and research systems designed to give graduates the confidence to tackle major research projects. All courses feature a curriculum that provides an excellent preparation for those wishing to pursue careers as teachers in their chosen field.

Course of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences

  • Master's Programs
  • Mathematics
    Information Mathematics

In-Depth Studies in a Variety of Areas Associated With Mathematics and Information science

Overview

The Course of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences complement and deepen the learning conducted in the Undergraduate School of Science (Department of Mathematics, Department of Mathematical Science) in the pursuit of research into a range of mathematical science fields. The Mathematics program includes courses in algebra, geometry, analysis, statistics / probability and computer mathematics, while the Mathematical Sciences program includes courses in graph theory, mathematical logic, computer statistics, game theory and computational geometry. In all courses, the Master's Program provides a solid grounding in the chosen field and students get the opportunity to explore the very notion of research and acquire research skills and methodologies for pursuing independent and autonomous research. An important feature of the course is that it provides instructors from the Department of Mathematics and Department of Mathematical Sciences (undergraduate school) to allow specialization across the broad spectrum of pure mathematics, applied mathematics and information processing.
