Research Phase

Research Phase: 

The overall goal of the sub-programme in mathematics is to help develop and strengthen the capacity for graduate education and research in the mathematics departments at Makerere University and partner public universities in Uganda.

The expected outcomes are well-prepared graduates, who can contribute both within and outside the universities, by augmenting the quantity and quality of research activities conducted in the departments.

The environment for research in mathematics at Makerere University and at the collaborating universities in Uganda will also be strengthened through creation of research teams.

Twenty (20) PhDs will be trained (15 local and 5 sandwich) out of these 10 are from PPUs and 10 Postdocs at Makerere will be awarded. In addition one PhD programme will be developed.
