The Postgraduate Studies Program (hereafter referred to as PSP) was first established in 1993 and redefined in 2006. The PSP focuses on mathematical sciences as they develop and evolve in the modern age through various branches and individual fields of specialisation. The aim of the PSP is to promote knowledge and develop research and applications in all branches of the mathematical sciences by training scientists, who are needed in order to cover the educational, research and developmental needs of the country. Through the PSP the Department awards:
a) MSc degrees in the following fields of specialisation:
- Mathematics (Analysis - Algebra - Geometry).
- Statistics and Operations Research.
- Applied Mathematics and Mechanics.
- Computational Mathematics and Computer Science.
- Mathematics for Education
Candidates of the M.Sc. Program should hold an undergraduate degree in Mathematics or Applied Mathematics or Statistics or Operation Research of either national or recognized foreign Universities and Technical Institutes. Moreover, graduates of other disciplines may be admitted, following a decision by the General Assembly. Candidates take written examinations, including a foreign language examination, as defined and announced by the Postgraduate Studies Coordinating Committee (PSCC). The PSCC may also recommend that certain candidates be accepted without examinations.
In order to obtain a M.Sc. degree, students are required to attend the courses, pass the examinations and write a dissertation that is presented in public and evaluated by a three-member Examining Committee.
Postgraduate Courses 2012-2013
b) Doctoral Degrees
Candidates of the M.Sc. Program must have finished the MSc Program of the Department of Mathematics, or any other related M.Sc. Program. To obtain a Ph.D. degree, the students must carry out an original research project and write a thesis. The Ph.D. thesis is presented in public and evaluated by a seven-member Examining Committee.
