Master of Science Program in Mathematics
Qualification Awarded

Institute students are awarded with a Second Cycle Degree in the curriculum programme and fulfilling all other requirements for graduation.

Level of Qualification

Second cycle Degree

Objectives

This programme serves two fundamental purposes; first it gives students a firm grouunding in theoretical mathematics to enable research and secondy students are encouraged to discover and realize their own potential, and these aims are reflected in the course structure.

Specific Admission Requirements

Second Cycle Degree Program: Students with a bachelor’s degree from a high school of 4 year education period or an equal degree are accepted to Second Cycle Degree Programs. The education period of Second Cycle Degree Program is at least 4 semesters with an Master thesis or 3 semesters without Master thesis.

Specific Arrangements for Recognition of Prior Learning

Institute students who are registered with vertical transfer have the right to request the recognition of their prior learning. For the recognition of their prior learning, they should submit their transcript and course contents to the relevant department in the first week of their registration semester.

Qualification Requirements and Regulations

The requirements for getting Second Cycle Degree are to complete 120 ECTS credit hours including at least seven courses the credit of which is above 21 National Credits, a seminar and thesis study.

Profile of The Programme

The matematics program was activated on the spring semester of 2009-2010 academic year. The aim of the Matematics Program is not only to prepare qualified and wise graduates according to the needs of our country but also to increase the number of teaching staff and specialists that are the needs of the universities. With this aim, its main orientation is; to train scientists who have scientific thinking ability, knowledge and research skills.

The department consists of five different divisions: Geometry, Analysis, Topology, Applied Mathematics and Algebra. 1 Professor, 1 Associate Professor, 2 Asistant professors, 3 Research Asistants are working within the department of Mathematics.

Program Learning Outcomes
After successful completion of this program, the students will be able to;
 1-  Applicate the mathematics to other disciplines,
 2-  Identify, model and solve the mathematical problems in mathematics and related fields,
 3-  Solve and design a problem process in accordance with a defined target,
 4-  Analyse the datas, interprete and applying the results to other datum,
 5-  Use the modern techniques and computational tools needed for mathematical applications,
 6-  Make team work within the discipline and interdisciplinary,
 7-  Act independently, using initiative and acquiring creativity skills,
 8-  Have self-development skills by observing the subjects as to the science, technology and modern topics,
 9-  Communicate their own ideas orally and in written way, in a clear and concise manner by having work skills as individual and ability to decide independently,
 10-  Have professional and ethical responsibility,
 11-  Aware of having in issues related to improving quality,
 12-  Watch actual problems of national and international,
 13-  Consistently sensitive to environmental issues and social relations,
Occupational Profiles of Graduates

At the end of their study period at the graduate level, the students become specialist in their fields and they can work in the universities as a teaching staff or in private sector.

Access to Further Studies

It is possible for the institute students to continue their third cycle education after second cycle degree.

Examination Regulations, Assesment and Grading

Examinations are composed of one mid-term and one final exam. In order a student to take the final exam, s/he should attend at least 70% of theoretical courses and 80% of applied and laboratory studies. The examinations can be in written form, oral form, written-application form, oral-application form or project form. The course grade is calculated by adding 40% of mid-term grade to the 60% of the final exam. To be accepted as successful from the course, the second cycle degree students should get at least 70(CC) out of 100. The final exam results should be 70 (CC) for second cycle degree students and 75 (CB) in order to pass the course.

Graduation Requirements

The requirements to graduate from Second Cycle Degree are to complete 120 ECTS credit hours including at least seven courses the credit of which is above 21 National Credits, a seminar and thesis study.
