Doctor of Mathematics The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
Joining the Department as a postgraduate is certainly a good move. The Department maintains strong research in both pure and applied mathematics, as well as the traditional core of a Mathematics department. What makes our Department different is equally strong research in fluid mechanics, scientific computation, and statistics.
The quality of research at the postgraduate level is reflected in the scholarly achievements of faculty members, many of whom are recognized as leading authorities in their fields. Research programs often involve collaboration with scholars at an international level, especially in the European, North American, and Chinese universities. Renowned academics also take part in the Department's regular colloquia and seminars. The faculty comprises several groups: Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Probability, and Statistics.
Mathematics permeates almost every discipline of science and technology. We believe our comprehensive approach enables inspiring interaction among different faculty members and helps generate new mathematical tools to meet the scientific and technological challenges facing our fast-changing world.
The Ph.D. program provides a broad background in mathematics and mathematical sciences. Students choose their major concentration from three options: Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics; and Probability, and Statistics. The doctoral thesis must be an original contribution to the field.
