Addis Ababa University Department of Mathematics – Check Below:
The Department of Mathematics, Addis Ababa University (AAU), has been running a BSc program in mathematics since 1961, an MSc program since 1980 and a Sandwich PhD program in Algebra since 2005 and recently in-house PhD program. So far, it has produced more than 500 MSc. Graduates.
Expanding its programs further, the department has designed a full-fledged in-house PhD program in five branches of specialization, namely: Algebra, Analysis, Combinatorics, Differential Equations, and Optimization. The program creates the opportunity for eligible candidates to undertake their PhD studies locally in the listed areas of mathematics.
The proposed PhD program is a course-and-research-based program in the above mentioned areas of specializations, in which candidates are expected to make a significant contribution to mathematics, or develop a new application of mathematics. The courses offered in the program constitute a highly advanced body of knowledge in mathematics and are designed to familiarize students with the recent advances in their areas of specialization. The PhD program is envisaged to be a four-year of full-time study.
Vision
The Department of mathematics aspires to be a prominent mathematical center committed to the advancement and dissemination of mathematical knowledge and to the training of competent and responsible mathematicians who will contribute to the development of Ethiopia.
