Doctoral programme on speciality "Mathematical and Computer Modeling" is created for further independent research and defence of a doctoral dissertation at the university. Within the frameworks of the course, PhD students study classical and modern approaches of mathematics such as methods of functional analysis, mathematical models of physical processes, a more advanced course of differential equations, in particular, derived equations, etc. In addition, courses on high-productive calculations and computer modelling are given. Thesis Board for the defence of doctoral dissertations on speciality "Mathematical and Computer Modeling" is functioning at our university.
Aims and Objectives
There is a training of competent specialists in the field of mathematical and computer modelling. In this direction, the faculty aims at upgrading the quality of the educational process by means of implementing modern methods and training techniques, updating and creating new mathematical courses that meet the requirements of a growing economy of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
Theoretical and practical minimum of PhD training
Specialists that have Master`s degree or academic degree of Candidate of Sciences are allowed to complete the programme. An applicant should be prepared for training on the doctoral programme and for research activities in the field of mathematical and computer modelling.
