Masters in Industrial Mathematics


Industrial Mathematics deals with developing mathematical models, finding solutions and interpreting the results of problems that come up in industry. The main objectives of this programme are to provide graduates with an adequate knowledge in Mathematics, Statistics, Operations Research and Scientific Computing, and to provide opportunities for research in applications of Mathematics to existing problems in industry.

Although programmes of this nature are well-established in developed countries, it is not so in developing countries like Sri Lanka. Such programs are essential to narrow the gap that exists between scientists in industry and mathematicians.
