published: 2019-01-03 09:41:00       hits: 

Mathematical Discipline of UESTC is identified as Key Primary Discipline in Sichuan Province, it has rights to grant Primary Discipline Doctoral and Postgraduate Programs and Post-doctoral Scientific Research Station, covering 5 secondary disciplines: Basic Mathematics, Computational Mathematics, Probability Theory and Mathematical Statistics, Applied Mathematics, Operations Research and Cybernetics.With the support of “10th Five-year”, “11th Five-year”, “211-Project” and “985-Project”, the discipline has became more competitive in basic research, applied basic research and interdisciplinary research, with strong comprehensive advantages of discipline, and its research level and ability have been improved significantly. And now, the Mathematical Disciplinehas formed its own research directions, which are internationally influential and domestic leading,covering Numerical Linear Algebra and Scientific Computing, Modeling for Image and Visual Processing and High-PerformanceNumerical Algorithm, Dynamical Systems and Control, Numerical Solution of Differential/Integral Equations with Applications, Partial Differential Equations and Harmonic Analysis with Applications, Probability Theory with Applications, Porosity Modeling and Numerical Simulation, etc..Its theories and methods have played an important role in Physics, Chemistry, Biomedicine, Electronic Information Science, Life Science, Management Science, Automatic Control, Computer Science, Material Science, Environment Scienceand other fields.

1.   Objectives

The major fosters high-level mathematical professionals who arebrave inpursuing truth and dedicated to scientific research. Masters of mathematical discipline are expected to master the current situation of the cutting-edge research and development trend of the relevant fields at home and abroad, to independently carry out research on basic theories as well as frontier topics and make innovative research results. The master’s degree recipients of this subject should be proficient in at least one foreign languagewith ability to read, write, listen and speak.

Masters of this discipline are also expected to have a preliminary understanding of Chinese history and culture, and to be capable of reading simple Chinese scientific and technical literatures and communicating with others in simple Chinese.

2.   Orientations

1. Numerical Linear Algebra and Scientific Computing with Applications 

2. Modeling for Image and Visual Processing and High-PerformanceNumerical Algorithm

3. Dynamical Systems and Control

4. Numerical Solution of Differential/Integral Equations with Applications

5. Partial Differential Equations and Harmonic Analysis with Applications

6. Probability Theory with Applications

3.   Duration

The duration set for master candidates is 2 years full-time. An extension can be applied for by those who cannot finish their courses in time owing to objective causes, yet altogether 4 years is the last due.

4.   Progression and Requirements

The minimum sum total credits for international students of master candidates are 26. Master candidates should complete the course work of no less than a total of 24 credits (out of which at least 15 credits should be acquired from degree courses), compulsory sections of no less than 2 credits, complete the thesis (or a research report) independently, and pass the degree thesis defense.

The supervisor responsibility mechanism is adopted in the education for international master candidates. The supervisor is responsible for the student’s making of personal study plan, the choice of courses, and the completion of the degree thesis. The personal study plan cannot be changed without permission of the supervisor.

During the course work, according to specifications by the discipline, the student is to pass examinations held for the degree courses and examinations or assessments held for the other optional courses. Of all the degree courses, common core courses are compulsory. Master candidates are allowed to choose 1~2 inter-disciplinary core courses as their degree courses under supervisors’ guidance. Degree courses can be taken to substitute non-degree courses, but not vice versa. International students with Chinese language abilities can apply to take courses given in Chinese to local full-time graduate students and acquire corresponding credits if pass.

Those who fail to meet the requirements as described above can fill up the gap by repetition or make-up in the limit of one year. Those who fail to meet the credit requirements even till the end of the due time are to be terminated.

6.   Compulsory Sections

The compulsory sections for international students of master candidates include two parts, a candidate is required to complete the following aspects:

1) Elective Competence Development Courses: through introducing the academic cutting edge knowledge, culture, arts and sports, etc., such courses are given to improve the master candidates’ comprehensive competences. A candidate should take at least one course and get one credit after assessment.

2) Academic Activities: to enliven academic atmosphere and to further and broaden master candidates’ scope of knowledge, one should attend at least five academic lectures within and out of UESTC, and fill in the Academic Activities Registration Form and get the official stamp upon attendance. One credit can be granted to the candidate when he/she succeeds in completing the above procedures.

7.   Degree Thesis

All degree thesis problems shall refer to UESTC Regulations for Postgraduate Degree Conferring.
