Program Description

Mathematics is one of the crucial components that acts as a bridge between science, engineering and technology. The Mathematics program aims to provide engineers with solid mathematical foundations and modern mathematical tools to assist in modelling and understanding of real world problems. The Mathematics program offers M.Sc. in Engineering Mathematics in the following concentrations: Optimization and Operational Research and Stochastic Modelling. Applicants must hold a B.Sc. in engineering. Masters candidates must complete 12 credits of graduate-level core courses in the first one and half year. In addition, with the guidance of the students’ supervisors, they must complete 6 credits from the concentrations elective courses.
