About Programme
In one aspect, mathematics is an art, in another aspect, it is a language. Galileo says that ?Nature was written in mathematics?.The order and harmony of the physical world are based on mathematics. Mathematics appear as a common language and tool from Einstein's relativity theory to a market shopping. The usage of mathematics that takes abstract subjects, numbers and space, and their relations as an area is rapidly increasing. The main aim of the department is to train mathematicians that have adequate equipment who can face with emerging technologies and can work in the research and technical fields. With this aim Gazi University Mathematics Department maintains its graduate activities in the six main branches: Analysis and Functions Theory, Algebra and Numbers Theory, Geometry, Topology, and Applied Mathematics.
The Main Branch of Science
Prof.Dr. Naim TU─×LU
The Department of Mathematics, which was established in 1982, continues its undergraduate and graduate education with 25 Professors, 9 Associate Professors, 3 Doctor Faculty Members and 11 Research Assistants. Graduate research in Algebra and Number Theory, Geometry, Analysis and Functions Theory, Topology and Applied Mathematics are carried out in our department.
Qualification Awarded
The Doctorate Degree in Mathematics
Admission Requirements
The general admission conditions stated under the application title on the website of the Graduate School of Natural And Applied Sciences ( ) are applied.
Higher Grade Transition
Students who have successfully graduated from this program may apply to post doctorate programs.
Graduation Requirements
Ph.D program, for students accepted with a master's degree, provided that not less than 60 credits per academic semester; a course including scientific research techniques and research and publication ethics, a minimum of nine courses including one compulsory course, a seminar course and a thesis preparation course, a minimum of 240 credits including a qualifying exam and a thesis study, a minimum of 240 credits for students admitted with a bachelor's degree It consists of at least 300 credits including fifteen courses, proficiency exam, thesis preparation course and thesis work.

For those who are admitted with a master's degree, the Ph.D program is eight semesters for each semester, regardless of whether they are registered or not, starting from the semester in which the courses related to the program they are enrolled in. The maximum completion period is twelve semesters; For those admitted with a bachelor's degree, ten semesters and the maximum completion period is fourteen semesters. The maximum period of successful completion of the compulsory and elective courses required for the doctorate program is four semesters for those who are admitted with a master's degree and six semesters for those admitted with a bachelor's degree.

For graduation, the CGPA must be at least 3.00 / 4.00 in Ph.D programs with a master's / undergraduate degree. Students who have completed their total credits but could not meet the graduation requirement meet this requirement by taking new course / courses. The student who is successful in the doctoral thesis defense examination is awarded a Ph.D Diploma with the name of the main discipline, provided that the other conditions are met.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates
Graduates of the PhD program are strong candidates basically for academic careers and advanced research positions. In addition, they may also be employed by relevant public and private companies for senior positions in R&D departments.
Assessment and Grading
1) Students take the final exam and/or the final project in addition to the mid-term exams and/or mid-term studies. Examination calendar is published on the website of the related academic department.
2) The success of the students is evaluated with the methods and criteria which are stated on the course description forms that are declared at the beginning of semester.
3) Students are obliged to succeed in must courses. They can reselect a failed elective course or select another elective instead.
4) Mid-term exams and/or mid-term studies and final exam and/or the final project are evaluated over 100 raw points. Letter success grades over 100 raw points are given for seminars, thesis studies, term project courses and proficiency exams. To succeed in courses, the minimum letter success grades must be CB for doctorate and integrated (post bachelor) doctorate.
5) A student whose raw point is under 25 fails the course by receiving an (FF) grade directly. The success grade of a student whose raw point is 25 or above is evaluated with the grades of which coefficients and definitions are stated below considering the general status of the class, average points and statistical range. After this evaluation, it is possible for the letter success grade equivalents of raw points that are 25 and above to be (FF).
6) Coefficients and letter success grades are evaluated as shown below:
Coefficients Letter Success Grades
4.00 AA
3.50 BA
3.00 BB
2.50 CB
2.00 CC
1.50 DC
1.00 DD
0.50 FD
0.00 FF
D: Absent
G: Not attended
E: Incomplete (The E grades which are not corrected until after 3 weeks from the finalization of letter success grades are converted to FF)
7) The CumGPA is calculated via dividing the final grades of all of the courses throughout a student?s study period by the total number of credits. The obtained CumGPA is shown with two decimals after the point.
8) While calculating both the GPAs of semesters/years and the CumGPA, the letters grades from AA to FF are based on. G and D grades are processed as FF.
9) All grades are included in the transcripts of students.
10) For graduation, the CumGPA must be 3,00/4,00 minimum for doctorate or integrated (post bachelor) doctorate programmes. Despite completing all the credits, students who cannot provide the graduation conditions take new courses to do so.
11) Students who do not provide the attendance conditions or other course requirements cannot take the final exam of the course and are regarded as absent (D).
