AIMS-Cameroon has trained a total of 295 students (274 under the taught Master’s degree program and 21 under the Co-operative Master’s Degree program) since it’s inception in 2013.
Students benefit from the experience of renowned visiting lecturers who teach for three weeks each.
Capacity building is provided by tutors who are always available on campus to ensure a 24-hour learning environment.
With degrees in Mathematics, Engineering, Physics, Statistics, Computer Science, Financial Mathematics as well as Actuarial Sciences, our 2020/2021 cohort comprises of 37 students (16 females and 21 males) from 07 African countries, namely Cameroon, Côte D’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, and Zambia.
In order to broaden the scope of our one-year Master’s training in Mathematical Sciences, the students have been enrolled under 03 streams including the Climate Science Steam, the Data Science Stream, and the Fundamental Science Stream.
The overall goal is for all students at AIMS-Cameroon to hone their skills in these domains, crystallize their knowledge in their AIMS research projects and beyond, increasing the critical mass of Mathematical Scientists contributing in different areas to Africa’s sustainable development.
THE CLIMATE SCIENCE STREAM
In the face of a changing climate, and in line with AIMS’ growing response to climate change, AIMS-Cameroon with the support of the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and Global Affairs Canada (GAC) has, this year, enrolled twelve (12) students under the Climate Science stream.
This stream offers courses in Climate Science to equip students with the tools to tackle climate change related issues through the use of Mathematical Sciences.
THE DATA SCIENCE STREAM
Given the popularity and growing importance of Data Science in the improvement of governance, business functions and people’s quality of life, AIMS-Cameroon has this year enrolled sixteen (16) students under this new interdisciplinary field.
This stream offers courses in Data Science to increase the transition to meaningful employment for AIMS scholars by enriching their learning experience with the acquisition of competencies relevant to the industrial and public sector.
THE FUNDAMENTAL SCIENCE STREAM
This stream offers academically oriented courses to students who intend to further their studies in the field of Mathematical Sciences.
With nine (09) scholars enrolled under this stream, we are sure to achieve our mission to groom the next generation of faculty members at different universities in Cameroon and Africa and train excellent researchers and inspiring teachers.
