The coursework programmeĀ component consists of science discipline-based and education courses. A candidate shall major inĀ only one science (or mathematics) subject.

Master of Science in Mathematical Modelling

The programme intends to create a critical mass of well-educated and competent Mathematics graduates equipped with the necessary knowledge, skills and attitude to address pressing societal problems effectively. Graduates of Master of Science in Mathematical Modelling will have developed skills for modelling of various physical phenomenon and analyzing mathematical models for different phenomenon and hence apply the skills in modelling distinct issues of real world.

Master of Science in Applied Botany and Master of Science in Applied Zoology programmes intend to equip graduates with skills to address pressing societal challenges related to botany, zoology, and associated environment. The graduates will acquire skills on how to address issues related to Biology, Botany, Zoology and related disciplines such as entomology, parasitology, animal science, biotechnology, microbiology, wildlife and conservation, public health and biochemistry depending on oneā€™s field of specialisation.
