MS Mathematics

This program requires a course work of 24 credit hours. 6 additional credit hours are also required to be completed either through research and submission of a thesis and its successful defense or by taking two additional courses in lieu of the thesis. This program imparts specialized knowledge in various areas of mathematics and exposes the students to latest development. Special efforts are made to nurture and enhance the research capabilities of the students through seminars, workshops and critique sessions. Typical research topics for MS students are Numerical Analysis, Analytical and Numerical techniques for Ordinary & Partial Differential Equations and Finite Element Analysis. Research opportunities are also available in Numerical Linear algebra, Mechanics of Fluids (Newtonian and Non-Newtonian), Computational Fluid Dynamics and Computational Rheology.
