Doctor Program

The department offers a degree of Doctor of Science in Applied Mathematics. When accepted into the doctoral program, the student embarks on a program of courses, seminars, and individual study courses to prepare for the oral examination, and dissertation. The student will choose one of four areas of specialization in the department, namely, algebra, applied analysis, geometry, and information theory of specialization in the department. The candidate must demonstrate independent, creative research in Mathematics by writing and defending a dissertation that makes a new and valuable contribution to mathematics. The expected time for completion of the program is three years.
