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.
To be recognized internationally for offering a strong Mathematical Sciences graduate program which attracts highly motivated and capable students.
The Mathematical Sciences graduate program will offer in depth graduate courses with a major emphasis in mathematics and a minor emphasis in a related subject outside mathematics and with the primary aims of preparing graduates for institutions in the governmental and private sectors.
- To provide students with a comprehensive mathematical education at Kuwait University, so that they can either continue to pursue a Ph. D program at top institutions around the world or to pursue Master and Ph. D programs abroad.
- To compete successfully for employment and higher positions in government, industry, and non-profit organizations .
- To attract non mathematics students with solid background in mathematics and to engage them in multidisciplinary research through our M. Sc. Program in Mathematical Sciences.
- Integrity and Professionalism
- Service to society
