What is your ranking among other departments of mathematics?
As per the data from the year 2018, the base and top points are, respectively: Around 233,000and 257,000 for a quota of 12 students with a 75% scholarship with the ranking of 372,000, and around 299,000 and 285,000 for a quota of 3 students with a 100% scholarship with the ranking of 185,000. In addition, our quotas are full, and they have been so in the recent years (last 4 years).
How is the relationship between your academicians and students?
Since we have a limited quota, the number of students per academicians are fairly low. This allows for our students to contact their academic advisors, or other faculty members, in an easy and comfortable manner. In addition, with the limited number of students taking program courses, our faculty members are able to track students individually, as well as their success, and have one-on-one sessions where needed for our students to improve where they see the need.
Do your successful graduates get to work at the University? Would such opportunities arise?
Our successful students study and solve problems with their peers having difficulty in certain courses, within the scope of our “Share the Success Program”. Students employed under the program are paid by the hour.
