The Department of Arts and Sciences was established in 1995 with the aim of teaching courses in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, English, Economics and Sociology for Engineering and Architecture departments. The Department of Arts and Sciences has introduced M.S Program in Mathematics starting from Spring 2010 under the Faculty of Engineering, AUST which is approved by the UGC Bangladesh and presently a number of good students are studying in this program. The MS will have specialization in Applied Mathematics, Computing Mathematics, Financial Mathematics and Bio-Mathematics.
The Department is blessed with smart, resourceful and quick-witted faculties having degrees from renowned institutions of home and abroad, working relentlessly to create more scopes of learning and research by introducing postgraduate programs in various fields of sciences. In the Mathematics discipline of the Department of Arts and Sciences is serving with 11 (eleven) full-time along with 9 (nine) part-time faculty members including 2 (two) part time with full load lecturers (PTFL) who possess excellent academic background. Faculty’s research interests cover several areas of applied mathematics like Numerical Analysis, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Mathematical Modeling, Traffic Flow Model, Heat and Mass Transfer Analysis using base fluid and nanofluids, Bio Fluid Dynamics, Computational Hemodynamics, Biomedical Imaging, Operation Research, Statistical Analysis, etc. The aim of this M.S. program is to provide quality education to the students and produce quality specialists in the different fields of Mathematics.
Currently, more than fifty students are enrolled in the M.S. in Mathematics program. After completing this degree most of the students are getting scholarships for Ph.D. program in USA, Canada, Australia, Japan, China etc.
For admission to M. S. in Mathematics a candidate:
Students with 'Appeared Certificate' can get admitted provisionally into MS Program.
A student who fulfils the minimum requirement for admission into M.S. in Mathematics can apply for admission. For this he/she has to apply in the prescribed form available in the office of the Registrar, AUST, after the publication of the admission notice. The filled -application form along with the necessary documents is to be submitted within the notified date. Candidates are selected for admission on the basis of their past academic records.
DURATION OF THE M.S. PROGRAM:
The duration of the M.S. Program in Mathematics is 1 academic year consisting of 2 semesters for the students having four year B.Sc and Two years (4 semesters) for the students having three year B.Sc. and others. Classes will be held on Friday and in the evening of other days.
MEDIUM OF INSTRUCTION: ENGLISH
REGARDING TUITION FEE:
Considering the financial position of the students willing to study Mathematics, the authority of AUST is pleased to announce that a student can get 50% ~ 100% waiver of the total tuition fees depending on their GPA or equivalent results obtained in Bachelor or equivalent degree. Payment may be in installments. For detail information regarding tuition fees and other facilities, the interested students can visit the head or Advisor of MS program in the Department of Arts and Sciences.
