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 is 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
  • 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.


  • A minimum of 16 years of education leading to BS/ MSc degree in Mathematics or equivalent.
  • Minimum 2.00/4.00 CGPA or 50% marks
  • Admission Test / HEC Approved Test


A student admitted in this program will have to complete the degree requirements by following any one of the options given below:

AREACr. Hrs.
24 Cr. Hrs. Course Work with 06 Cr. Hrs. Thesis30
27 Cr. Hrs. Course Work with 03 Cr. Hrs. Project30
Course work only (10 Courses)30


This is normally a two years program comprising of 4 semesters. There will be a Fall and Spring semester in each year. The maximum duration to complete MPhil in Mathematics is 4 years.


A student is required to earn a minimum 3.00/4.00 CGPA on the completion of his degree requirements.
