The management of the African University of Science and Technology (AUST) Abuja invites suitably qualified candidates for admission into its full-time M.Sc./Ph.D. programmes for the 2017/2018 academic session.
The University offers world class post-graduate programmes that are taught by leading African and International professors in the following areas:
- Computer Science
- Materials Science & Engineering
- Petroleum Engineering
- Pure and Applied Mathematics
- Theoretical & Applied Physics
Application forms must be accompanied by an application fee of $50 or ₦10,000. Please note that this fee is non-refundable. Click here for information on how to pay.
Eligible applicants will be contacted prior to admission.
The 1st year AUST courses are taught at the Advanced Undergraduate and Graduate Level. This means that for students to be able to follow and benefit from the courses, they should have adequate preparation in Mathematics and the Basic Engineering Sciences prior to starting this program. Requirements for admission are as follow:
an honours B.Sc, degree in Mathematics, Computational Sciences, Engineering or Science from a recognized university with a minimum of Second Class Upper or a GPA of at least 3.5. Candidates from francophone countries should have a “Maitrise” degree mention B and be proficient in English.
In addition, below are the specific perequisites for each program:
PURE AND APPLIED MATHEMATICS
Analysis / Advanced Calculus / Linear Algebra / Topology / ODE and Complex Analysis taken at undergraduate level.
COMPUTER SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING
In addition to good preparatory Mathematics courses, students are expected to have knowledge of a modern programming language (e.g. Java, C, C++, and Computer Operating Systems).
Mathematics knowledge at least equivalent to courses in Calculus, Advanced Calculus (Vector Analysis, Multivariable Calculus), Linear Algebra and Differential Equations. Students are also expected to have taken courses at an intermediate level in Classical Mechanics, Electromagnetism, Thermodynamics and Quantum Mechanics.
MATERIALS SCIENCE ENGINEERING AND PETROLEUM ENGINEERING
At least 4 semesters of Mathematics courses covering Calculus, Linear Algebra, Advanced Calculus (Vector Analysis and Multivariable Calculus) and Ordinary Differential Equations.
Knowledge of a (modern) programming language is expected.
Mechanics (Solids and Engineering Mechanics), Thermodynamics, Fluid Dynamics (for Petroleum Students) and General Chemistry (for Material Science Students).
