AIMS CO-OPERATIVE MASTER’S PROGRAM 2020/2021 FOR YOUNG AFRICANS (FULLY FUNDED)
The co-operative version of the AIMS Structured Master’s program, offered at AIMS Sénégal, Rwanda and Ghana builds on the core AIMS Master’s program and leads to the same AIMS Structured Master’s degree in mathematical sciences.
The 18-month program takes a work-integrated learning approach by combining course work with practical industry experience. This allows students to apply their scientific knowledge to real world problems while gaining work experience in an industrial environment.
The program enables students to develop the necessary professional skills to transition from academic studies to progressive careers in industry (defined as private or public businesses, government, non-governmental organisations, and civil society).
The Co-operative Master’s program includes two work placements of three and four months throughout the regular coursework. Successful completion of all coursework and both work placements is required for graduation.
The Co-operative Master’s program is designed specifically to prepare students for work in the areas of big data and IT security. Applicants are requested to choose their preferred area of focus.
- Applicants should hold, or anticipate completing by the start date of the AIMS course, a 4-year university degree in mathematics, or any science or engineering subject with a significant mathematics component
