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:

AREA Cr. Hrs.
24 Cr. Hrs. Course Work with 06 Cr. Hrs. Thesis 30
27 Cr. Hrs. Course Work with 03 Cr. Hrs. Project 30
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.
