The Central European University (CEU) Mathematics Department offers a PhD program in Mathematics and its Applications, accredited in the US, in cooperation with the Alfréd Rényi Institute of Mathematics, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, home of Abel Prize laureate Endre Szemerédi. In order to broaden the perspectives for students, the department collaborates closely with other Departments (Network Science, Economics) at CEU, and universities in Budapest. Upon graduation, the PhD program enables students to become mature scientists or high profile professionals.
As a community of students, faculty and staff, the Department of Mathematics and its Applications is committed to academic freedom, equal access to education and collegial self-governance. Our ultimate aim is to enable our diverse student body to become successful and influential professional scientists in the future social and academic life of their home countries and abroad.
The doctoral program combines traditional mathematics and contemporary applications in matters related to modern society. It fosters critical and creative thinking and offers doctoral candidates a unique academic experience and research opportunities in an international environment.
Graduates pursue successful careers at universities, research institutes, corporations, banks, and governmental and EU institutions.
