Postgraduate Program

Program Name: M. Sc. (Applied Mathematics)

Program Type:  Course work and Thesis

Study Mode:  Full time

Duration: two years


Program Description:

The student should complete the course work requirements specified in the degree plan (see below) with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00.
