The PhD in Mathematical Sciences is a broad reference to the PhDs offered by the Institute of Mathematical Sciences in specific areas, which include the following:
- Pure Mathematics
- Mathematical Finance
Currently the PhD in Mathematical Sciences is on offer primarily through research.
The first stage which is part of the application process of the PhD by research program is an oral interview/defense of the concept paper submitted by the applicant to assess suitability of the work. The second stage includes developing the Ph.D. research proposal, the Oral Examination of the proposal. The main objective of this second stage is to assist the student in choosing a research area and in obtaining sufficient knowledge of this area, including recent research developments. The third and key stage of the Ph.D. program is the “Ph.D. thesis”, in which the student makes an original contribution to the specific area of Mathematical Sciences.
