Courses Structure

In accordance with the requirements of the Graduate School at Sharif, M.Sc. degrees are offered in both Mathematics and Computer Science.

M.Sc. Programs

  • Pure Mathematics
  • Applied Mathematics
  • Computer Science

The students in the Computer Science program are free to pursue their studies in one of the two different branches; Scientific Computing or Theory of Computation.

Required courses for Pure Mathematics: Real Analysis, Advanced Algebra, Differential Manifolds or Algebraic Topology.

Required courses for Applied Mathematics: Real Analysis, Advanced Numerical Analysis, Advanced Operations Research I or Applied Stochastic Processes or Theory of ODE.         

Required courses for Computer Science: Foundations of Computer Science, Matrix Computations, Logic for Computer Science.
