MASTER OF SCIENCE IN MATHEMATICAL MODELLING - MSc. MT. Modeling.

A Master of Science in Mathematical Modeling is a graduate degree program that focuses on the application of mathematical techniques and tools to model and analyze complex systems in various fields. This program equips students with advanced knowledge of mathematical concepts, computational methods, and statistical analysis, enabling them to develop mathematical models that represent real-world phenomena. Students gain expertise in areas such as optimization, simulation, data analysis, and numerical algorithms. Through coursework and research projects, they learn to apply mathematical modeling techniques to solve problems in areas such as engineering, finance, economics, biology, environmental science, and computer science. The program emphasizes critical thinking, problem-solving, and the ability to interpret and communicate mathematical models and their results effectively. Graduates of the program are well-prepared for careers in research, data analysis, decision-making, and consultancy in academia, industry, or governmental organizations. They may also choose to pursue further studies at the doctoral level to advance their research skills and contribute to the development of mathematical modeling methodologies.

Regulations Governing the Award of the BSc. Edu. Degree

The College operates a semester system of studies. Each discipline offers a variety of courses, including core courses, which are compulsory to students majoring in the subjects, and Elective courses. Each course is given a credit weighting according to the time devoted to it on the timetable. Fifteen one-hour lectures and fifteen two to three-hour practical classes constitute four credits. Thus, for example, a course consisting of 30 one-hour lectures and 15 three-hour practical classes is a Twelve (12) credits course. Seminars and discussion groups are not counted in the weighting unless they make up more than a third of the total teaching hours in a course.
