MS in Mathematics

Program Overview

Mathematics is one of the oldest academic subjects and is still very much alive and is growing very fast. It is considered to be very important in the learning and understanding of science subjects in particular and other subjects in general. The advent of computers and data acquisition facilities has stretched the limits of what is possible in Mathematics to all branches of human endeavor. New developments are taking place all the time; some as result of fresh ideas or review of old techniques and problems from a fresh standpoint and others prompted by the applications to new and emerging physical, biological and social sciences, economics, computing and so on. This has given rise to new IT based techniques of mathematical study and has created new computational methodologies. Mathematics is one of the most mature and well developed disciplines of the basic sciences. The study of Mathematics is not only exciting but important Mathematicians have an opportunity to make a lasting contribution to the society by helping to solve problems in such diverse fields as medicine, biology, management, economics, computer sciences, physics, psychology, engineering, and social sciences.

From Fall 2019 to onwards, the Department of Mathematics has started a joint training and research program with the Mathematics section of ICTP-Italy. Under this collaboration, during each admission of a new generation of students in the Fall semester, 10 brilliant Pakistani students who have applied to the "MS in Mathematics" program have been given the option to be admitted instead to the same program with 10 international students at CUI Lahore campus.  

This program will be supervised by distinguished professors from Pakistan jointly with faculty from the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Russia and other countries. In particular, most courses will be taught by foreign Professors who will visit CUI Lahore and who will be available for research supervision as well. This program will train students in areas of pure, applied and computational mathematics. The program is open to all eligible students. For more information click here
Interested students from Pakistan should apply no later than July 28, 2021 by following the registration procedure on the CUI website. In the "Program Choices" section, please select the Master's of Science in Mathematics. All students who fulfill the minimum eligibility criteria will be directly considered for the MS in Mathematics program with international faculty. For additional information and details of the application procedure please contact Dr. Muhammad Faisal Nadeem (
