Graduate Programs
The department offers a program of studies in several branches of mathematics leading to the Master's of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. Some of the chief branches offered are:
  • Analysis: Approximation Theory, Complex Analysis, Functional Analysis, Harmonic Analysis, Operator Theory, Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations
  • Applied Mathematics: Mathematical Biology, Mathematical Modelling, Numerical Analysis
  • Discrete Mathematics / Algebra: Associative Rings, Combinatorics, Computer Algebra, Group Theory, Invariant Theory, Matrix Theory, Spectral Graph Theory
  • Foundations: Model Theory
  • Geometry / Topology: Algebraic Geometry, Differential Geometry, Low Dimensional Topology, Symplectic Geometry
For more details, see Research.

Programs available
  • Pre-Master Program
  • Thesis-based Master of Science (M.Sc. Program)
  • Course-based Master of Science (M.Sc. Program)
  • Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D. Program).
Typically, students take 4 to 5 years to complete a Ph.D, 2 years to complete a thesis-based M.Sc. and 16 months to complete a course-based M.Sc. For program regulations, refer to the Supplemental Regulations.


In an effort to help students, the Math department has put together the LevelUp program. See details here. Video explaining registration process is here.
