Embark in high quality and innovative research in the broad field of mathematical sciences, that demonstrates the beauty of numbers and algorithms, and their usefulness in decision-making and problem-solving.
This research programme aims to develop your research skills in one of the many exciting areas of mathematics, ranging from pure mathematics, applied mathematics to applied statistics. Working closely with your supervisors, you will be exposed to the different aspects of research activities, including developing a comprehensive literature review, identifying areas of contribution, and communicating research outputs via journal publications and conference presentations.
The PhD in Mathematical Sciences will equip you with strong mathematical, analytical and statistical data analysis skills, to become experts and well-qualified researchers.
Candidates are required to complete three modules, namely Research Methodology, Academic Writing, and Research Proposal, in addition to the Thesis component. By undergoing these modules, candidates will develop the necessary skills and knowledge to conduct research successfully towards the completion of the thesis.
The PhD is awarded based on the successful completion of a thesis. The thesis should demonstrate proficiency, criticality and mastery in the subject or chosen area of research.
