AIMS Master Scholarship delivers a world-class Master’s in Mathematical Sciences to students recruited from across the African continent. Each AIMS center offers a rigorous, ten-month Master’s degree program with courses offered by renowned international visiting speakers. Read on for more information.
Three semesters make up the AIMS Structured Master’s Program.
The AIMS course’s phase on prerequisite skills develops a set of fundamental problem-solving abilities, including estimating, calculation, approximation, modeling, data analysis, and statistics.
Students can put these abilities to use in some of the most fascinating scientific fields during the elective review phase.
Students conduct a research project and produce a scientific report on a topic of their choice as part of the AIMS course’s final phase.
This work is done under the guidance of an experienced researcher. After AIMS, the research conducted in these projects frequently leads to other postgraduate research programs.
AIMS Master Scholarship
The ultimate purpose of the AIMS Master’s in Mathematical Sciences is to educate well-rounded scientists with exceptional problem-solving skills, capable of creative thinking and scalable innovation.
The curriculum equips students with both a solid foundation in math and computational research techniques and a thorough understanding of contemporary sciences.
Students can choose their future area of specialization after taking courses that expose them to a variety of subjects.
The complete cost of AIMS tuition, books, and accommodation is covered by a substantial scholarship.
Because AIMS is a residential program, teachers and students can interact more often than they can at a traditional institution.
Students study two disciplines for three weeks each, with morning lectures followed by afternoon sessions for problem-solving and computing.
The nights are when extra tutorials and special lectures are offered, and this is also when students typically finish their homework.
The courses are extensive in scope and use the most up-to-date pedagogical techniques to foster critical and creative thinking. They also feature great visiting speakers from renowned universities and laboratories throughout the world.
To facilitate student participation and follow-up, each center offers a Tutoring Fellowship, which permits Postdoc and doctorate researchers to work as dedicated teaching assistants, providing capacity building for the students 24/7.
The institute’s unique residential character allows for optimum interaction between students, lecturers, and tutors in a harmonious environment at all hours.
