# M.Sc. Mathematics

The Department of Mathematics offers a graduate program that leads to the degree of Master of Science in Mathematics. The program features a thesis and a non-thesis options. The thesis option requires a successful completion of a thesis, and the non-thesis option requires the completion of a project. Both part-time and full-time students can be admitted to the program. 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 Mathematics, and to be valued internationally as a significant contributor to the continuing graduate education in these fields.
