What former student's have said:
“The faculty members in the math department enhance our cognitive abilities to prepare us for future challenges. It’s a blessing to pursue my master’s degree here, because it has not only increased my interaction with these scholarly heavyweights and the undergraduate students, but it has also enriched my mathematical skills. I can easily say that I’m living and breathing mathematics right now, which is a dream come true.”
Binish Jamal, MSMTH student

“I decided to join the MSMTH program, not just because I could stay with my family, but also because
I know from my undergraduate days that the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at AUS has amazing faculty members. I have thoroughly enjoyed being able to customize both my undergraduate and graduate program—you really learn what you want to learn. The graduate program MSMTH at AUS is the best way to pave my future path.”
Jonas Saman, MSMTH student

American University of Sharjah (AUS) was founded in 1997 by His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qassimi, UAE Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah. Consciously based upon American institutions of higher education, AUS is thoroughly grounded in Arab culture and is part of a larger process of the revitalization of intellectual life in the Middle East. The university has four academic divisions: the College of Architecture, Art and Design; College of Arts and Sciences; College of Engineering; and the School of Business Administration.
