College of Computer Sciences & Information Systems

Course Detail

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).

Program Requirements

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

  • Evaluation of MS Dissertation by two external faculty members as per HEC criteria

  • Dissertation/Thesis Finalization

  • Open defense of MS dissertation

  • Any other HEC requirement

  • Final Dissertation/Thesis Submission to BASR

  • Use knowledge to apply mathematical and scientific computing techniques and algorithms to real-life problems to extract meaningful insights.
  • Acquisition of hands-on experience with relevant software tools, languages, data models, and environments for data process- ing.
  • Ability to communicate results of analysis effectively (visually and verbally) to a broad audience in the fields of biology, envi- ronment, finance and risk management, data science, business management, and other disciplines.
