Eastern Africa Universities Mathematics Programme (EAUMP)
The main activities supported by the programme are:
Training of postgraduate at two levels, PhD and MSc
Literature and equipment
Staff exchange in the region
Coordinators and advisory committee meetings
Postgraduate Training This is one of the main activities of EAUMP targeting to reduce critical shortage of staff in the participating universities especially on the area of pure mathematics and on the new areas of mathematics. Each one node had on training at least two PhD students per year. Usually the period of PhD training is three years. All PhD students registered at their home universities and they are on sandwich programme. In year 2011 EAUMP had 15 PhD students on training with 3 students per node. In each year at least three PhD and two M.Sc. students per node are on training. The period of training for M.Sc. is normally two years. Most of M.Sc. students are registered and trained at their local universities. Some of the students are trained outside their home universities within the region depending on the availability of experts and specialization.
