Application Deadline: March 31st 2019
The co-operative version of the AIMS Structured Master’s program, offered only at AIMS Senegal, AIMS Cameroon and AIMS Rwanda builds on the core AIMS Master’s program and leads to the same AIMS Structured Master’s degree in mathematical sciences.
The 18-month program takes a work-integrated learning approach by combining course work with practical industry experience. This allows students to apply their scientific knowledge to real world problems while gaining work experience in an industrial environment. The program enables students to develop the necessary professional skills to transition from academic studies to progressive careers in industry (defined as private or public businesses, government, non-governmental organisations, and civil society). The Co-operative Master’s program includes two work placements of three and four months throughout the regular coursework. Successful completion of all coursework and both work placements is required for graduation.
The Co-operative Master’s program is designed specifically to prepare students for work in the areas of big data and IT security. Applicants are requested to choose their preferred area of focus.
Eligibility requirements include;
- Applicants must have a conferred 4-year university degree in mathematics and science or engineering subject with a significant mathematics component or anticipate completing by the start date of the AIMS course.
- Applicants should demonstrate a strong aptitude in mathematics, leadership and community service. Women applicants are strongly encouraged to apply.
Potential applicants must demonstrate both a high degree of motivation and the ability to complete the course successfully. Late applications will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Master’s degrees are awarded in partnership with leading local academic institutions affiliated with AIMS centers.
There are no course fees for successful applicants. Full bursaries covering tuition, accommodation, meals, and travel costs are also awarded to successful applicants.
Applications close on 31st March 2019.
