Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Concentration: Mathematics
The PhD program in Mathematical Sciences is designed for students with Master degree in Mathematics from a credit university. It is a 56 credit hours program offered for full time students within the Department of Mathematical Sciences. Students are required to complete 24 credit hours of coursework in addition to30 credit hours assigned to research and a completion of a PhD thesis. The coursework includes 6 credit hours of College of Science requirements (Ethics, Research Methods and Seminars), 3 core mathematics courses in addition to 3 elective courses (9 credit hours) that allow the student to specialize in any specific topic related to pure or applied mathematics. Student progress is overseen by a research supervisor (and co-supervisors) and a thesis defense committee. The program is a fee-based program open for all students who meet the entry requirements.
Program Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this program, students will be able to:
- Will demonstrate the breadth of knowledge in the discipline and advance, in-depth knowledge in the sub-discipline or area of specialization.
- Will have performed and defended an original work of research in their fields of specialization which contributed new human knowledge.
- Will be able to identify, analyze critically and explain open problems in their disciplines and apply relevant research methodology for finding a possible solution.
- Will be able to communicate the major tenets of their field of specialization and their work orally and in writing to the faculty, their peers, and the lay public.
- Will be able to identify areas where ethical issues may arise in their field, and articulate strategies to mitigate situations related to ethical issues in their profession.
- Will demonstrate an insight into the transferable nature of research skills to other work environments and the range of career opportunities available to them inside and outside academia.
