Mathematics and Statistics
College of Computer Science and Information Systems
The MS program in Mathematics & Scientific Computing develops rigorous foundational mathematical tools that help in careers as researchers and solution providers.
The MS program in Mathematics & Scientific Computing prepares students for careers in research, applications, and teaching. Students choose courses from two areas of concentration for their course work: Mathematics and Computations. Students are required to qualify successfully for eight courses (4 compulsories and 4 electives) each of 3 credit hours’ duration. On successful completion of MS, course work students will be allowed to work on a 6 credit hour thesis on a subject of their interest depending on the availability of the faculty. Students will be required to qualify for the Final (Comprehensive) Examination, as well as write and defend a thesis. The MS Program takes usually two years to complete and students must pass the GRE/NTS exam prior to completion of the degree.
MS Mathematics & Scientific Computing students learn to:
Develop a thorough understanding of mathematical methods before going to apply analytical skills to solve real-life problems.
Apply rigorous mathematical and computational skills used to handle problems to get meaningful results.
Establish and understand a connection between the techniques of mathematical analysis and scientific computing and their
link with the real-life problems.
16 Years of education in Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics, Statistics or any other relevant field. Minimum CGPA of 2.5 (on a scale of 4.0).
MS requires completion of course work and dissertation/thesis. Minimum duration is 2 years and the maximum is 4 years:
MS course work requirements consist of six graduate-level courses (27 credit hours)
On completion of the dissertation/thesis, the student is awarded 33 credits
A MS student must additionally complete the following requirements:
MS Proposal/Synopsis Development
MS Proposal/Synopsis Defense
BASR Approval of MS Proposal/Synopsis
Continuous enrollment in supervised research courses for meeting the full-time residency requirements
Completion of MS Dissertation/Thesis
Selection of External Evaluators by BASR
Evaluation of MS Dissertation by two external faculty members as per HEC criteria
Open defense of MS dissertation
Any other HEC requirement
Final Dissertation/Thesis Submission to BASR
