# M.Sc. Mathematical Sciences

The Department of Mathematics offers a graduate program that leads to the degree of Master of Science in Mathematical Sciences (MMS). The program features a non-thesis option **only**. The non-thesis option requires the completion of a project. Both part-time and full-time students can be admitted to the program. The MMS program is intended for students who are interested in interdisciplinary program with a major emphasis in mathematics and a minor emphasis in a related subject outside mathematics. The program offers students with a thorough knowledge of applicable mathematics and develops their expertise in applying the methods and tools of mathematics to problems in science, engineering, finance, medicine, and education. Current research interests of the faculty include:

Differential Equations, Numerical Analysis, Integral Transforms, Fractional Calculus, Algebra (Ring Theory); Analysis (Functional Analysis, Operator Theory; Approximation Theory and Fourier Analysis), Geometry (General Topology, Differential Geometry, and Algebraic Topology), Discrete Mathematics, Combinatorics, Dynamical Systems, and Control.

**Program Vision:**

To be recognized as one of the top mathematics department in the region for offering strong M.Sc. in Mathematical Sciences, and to be valued internationally as a significant contributor to the continuing graduate education in these fields.

**Program Mission:**

To train students to apply and disseminate mathematical knowledge and understanding.
