The research-based programme aims at enhancing and expanding the knowledge and expertise in the mathematics field, and to advance the student’s capacity to carry out supervised research at a highly advanced level in at least one sub-discipline of Mathematics. Students may develop and apply these in the specialised areas such as Optimisation (including Operations Research), Fluid Dynamics (to address water and energy problems), Computational Methods, Biomathematics, Mathematical Ecology, Dynamical Systems, Cryptography, Game Theory, and Mathematical Modelling (including Financial Mathematics) that will help to model financial problems and many others that face the public and private sectors. The knowledge acquired from the programme will enable students to participate in research projects involving endemic problems faced in the sub-region such as water, energy, finance and health and resource management.
Graduates from the PhD programme in Mathematics will be well-equipped to fill positions that require critical thinking, logical reasoning, modeling, computational, quantitative and qualitative skills acquired in the programme at research organisations, consulting firms, tertiary institutions and government agencies and to participate as consultants or members of interdisciplinary teams in a wide range of organisations, including the financial service, engineering and environmental service sectors.
Some of the Subjects You Will Study
Students are required to submit a research proposal within six months for approval by the HDC. It is compulsory that students attend regular research methodology seminars until successful defence and approval of the research proposal. Students are required to present work-in-progress every six months during research seminars for monitoring and assessment purposes.
In compliance with the general requirements of Senate, students are required to submit a thesis for evaluation, which should comply with NUST’s Rules for Postgraduate Studies
