The Faculty of Science and Technology offers a programme of study leading to the degree of Master of Science in Mathematics. The aim of this programme is to give a high level background in Mathematics that enables students to develop research work in their specific fields.
The current program, launched in 2001, is a replacement of the old programme which had a different coursework structure.

Admission Requirements

Applicants to the Master of Science in Mathematics program should have a Bachelor degree in Mathematics (depending on the mathematics knowledge of applicants, other areas may also be considered) from the University of Macau or an equivalent one from other accredited universities, or higher institutions.


2 years (full-time study)
3 to 4 years (part-time study)

Programme Structure

A student must complete 8 courses (24 credits) and a thesis for graduation.
    Course Work Component

    Each student  is required to complete a total of 24 credits: 2 compulsory courses and 6 elective courses chosen by the student.

    Master Thesis

    A Master Thesis must report a specialized work developed by the student under the guidance of his Thesis-Supervisor. This thesis must show an advanced knowledge in the student's specific field and demonstrate the ability to develop research.
