Graduate School of Natural and Applied Sciences - Mathematics - Third Cycle Programme



General Description
History
The department of Mathematics was founded as a major, independent unit within the Faculty of Science in 1961. In 1973, it was proposed that it be a department consisting of two subsections: Applied Mathematics and Theoretic Mathematics. The department was reformed in 1982. Since then it has had seven subunits (Theory of Algebra and Number, Geometry, Theory of Calculus and Functions, Topology, Foundations of Mathematics and Mathematical Logic, Applied Mathematics, and Computer Science) and steadily improved in the areas of academics and education.
Qualification Awarded
The Doctorate Degree in Mathematics awarded to the graduates who have successfully full filled all programme requirements.
Level of Qualification
Third Cycle
Specific Admission Requirements
The applicants who hold a Master's Degree and willing to enroll in the Doctorate programme may apply to the Directorate of Graduate School with the documents. 1-Sufficient score (at least 55 out of 100) from the Academic Staff and Graduate Study Education Exam (ALES) conducted by Student Selection and Placement Center (OSYM) or GRE Graduate Record Examination (GRE) score or Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) score equivalent to ALES score of 55. 2-English proficiency (at least 70 out of 100 from the Profiency Exam conducted by Ege University Foreign Language Department, or at least 55 out of 100 from ÜDS (University Language Examination conducted by OSYM) or TOEFL or IELTS score equivalent to UDS score of 55. The candidates holding Bachelor's or Master's Degree taught totally in English are exempted from English proficiency requirement. The candidates fulfilling the criteria outlined above are invited to interwiev. The assessment for admission to masters programs is based on : 50% of ALES, 15% of academic success in the undergraduate programme (cumulative grade point average (CGPA) ) 10 % of academic success in the master's programme and 25% of interview grade. The required minimum interview grade is 60 out of 100. The candidates having an assessed score of 65 at least are accepted into the Doctorate programme. The results of the evaluation are announced by the Directorate of Graduate School.
Specific Arrangements For Recognition Of Prior Learning (Formal, Non-Formal and Informal)
The rules for recognition of formal prior learning are well defined. A student who is currently enrolled in a Doctorate Degree programme in the same discipline at another institution and has successfully completed at least one semester, upon submitting all required documents before the deadline, may transfer to the Doctorate Programme at EGE University upon the recommendation of the department administration and with the approval of the Administrative Committee of the Graduate School. The decision taken will also include eligibility for exemption from some course requirements of the graduate program. Students who transfer from another university must be successful in the EGE University English Proficiency Exam or in an equivalent English examination. Recognition of prior non-formal and in-formal learning is at the beginning stage in Turkish Higher Education Institutions. Ege University is not an exception to this.
Qualification Requirements and Regulations
The doctorate programme consists of a minimum of seven courses, with a minimum of 21 national credits, a qualifying examination, a dissertation proposal, and a dissertation. The period allotted for the completion of the Doctorate programmes is normally eight semesters (four years). However, while it is possible to graduate in a shorter time, it is also possible to have an extension subject to the approval of the graduate school. The seminar course and thesis are non-credit and graded on a pass/fail basis. The total ECTS credits of the programme is 240 ECTS. A student may take undergraduate courses on the condition that the courses have not been taken during the undergraduate program. However, at most two of these courses may be counted to the Doctorate course load and credits. The PhD students are required to take the Doctoral Qualifying Examination, after having successfully completed taught courses. The examination consists of written and oral parts. The Doctoral Qualifying Committee determines by absolute majority whether a candidate has passed or failed the examination. Students who fail the Qualifying Examination may retake the examination the following semester. Students failing the Examination a second time are dismissed from the program. Students must register for thesis work and the Specialization Field course offered by his supervisor every semester following the semester, in which the supervisor is appointed. A dissertation supervisor who must hold the minimum rank of assistant professor is appointed for each PhD student. When the nature of the dissertation topic requires more than one supervisor, a joint-supervisor may be appointed. A joint-supervisor must hold a doctoral degree. Periodic monitoring of research work by a thesis monitoring committee is required to be awarded the Doctoral degree. A student who has completed work on the thesis within the time period, must write a thesis, using the data collected, according to the specifications of the Graduate School Thesis Writing Guide. The thesis must be defended in front of a jury. The thesis jury is appointed on the recommendations of the relevant Department Chairperson and with the approval of the Administrative Committee of the Graduate School. The jury is composed of the thesis supervisor and 5 faculty members. Of the appointed jury members, up to two may be selected from another Department or another University. The co-supervisor cannot be the jury member. Thesis defense by the candidate is open to all audience and a jury decides to grant/deny the Doctoral degree. A majority vote by the jury members determines the outcome of the thesis or examination. The vote can be for "acceptance", "rejection" or "correction". A student may be given, by a decision of the Administrative Committee of the Graduate School, up to six months to complete the corrections. The student must then retake the thesis examination.
Profile of The Programme
The education is four years excepting one year of English Prepration. The students who couldn’t qualified for English must attend English Prepration education at foreign language department. Some part of department lessons are English. Our departments education program is coordinated as to follow nowadays mathematical developments. First semester all the department students take common lessons; General :Mathematics, Analysis, Topology, Differential Equations, Abstract Algebra, Computer Science and etc. At the fifth semester, students chose options as Theoritical Mathematics, Computer Science and Applied Mathematics. At the third and fourth years all the options have optional and compulsary lessons.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates With Examples
If the graduates have formation and get KPSS Marks, they can be appointed as a Mathematics theacher by M.E.B, or they can be work as a mathematics theacher at private establishment preparing students for various exams and special school. On computer sector they can work in diferent positions. The students who are in graduate education can be researcher and researcher assistants in universities.
Access to Further Studies
Graduates who succesfully completed doctorate degree may apply to both in the same or related disciplines in higher education institutions at home or abroad to get a position in academic staff or to governmental R&D centres to get expert position.
Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading
The applied survey and valuation form for all lessons is defined in detailed form at “Lesson Education Plan”.
Graduation Requirements
Graduation requirements are explained in the section “Qualification Requirements and Regulations” .
