MPhil Mathematics (Evening)

The MPhil Program in Mathematics is designed with major focus on preparing students with advanced knowledge of Mathematics applicable to other sciences and technologies. A Graduate having MPhil degree in Mathematics from CUST will be supposed to have the realization that Mathematics is a useful tool rather than an abstract subject.

After the two semesters of course work, students will have the opportunity to choose a research area from a variety of available options. The possible research areas are Wave Mechanics, Celestial Mechanics, General Relativity, Fix Point Theory, Numerical solutions of differential equations arising from any area of Mathematics and other sciences, Eigenvalue problems, Computational Algebra, Data Security and Cryptography. Interested students may also work in Control Systems, Image Processing and Algorithms in collaboration with the faculty members of the departments of the university.
