Masters Program in Mathematics in Cambodia

IMU/ DCSG supported financially as well as by contribution of professional expertise the efforts of the French Centre International de Mathématique Pures et Appliquées (CIMPA) to rebuild the mathematical infrastructure in Cambodia, with prospects of cooperation from Vietnam and other countries in Southeast Asia, several of whom have considerable mathematical resources.

The initiative has resulted in the establishment of a Masters program, in 2007, in mathematics at the Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP), Cambodia; Volunteer lecturers from France (CIMPA), USA (NAS) and Japan (JICA) collaborate with the Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP).

Each course is taught by a recognized international mathematician, with the assistance of a Cambodian counterpart from the Department of Mathematics at the Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP).

This close association between foreign experts and Cambodian staff benefits both parties, building RUPP's resources and experience in postgraduate teaching and allowing international professors to build a closer association with RUPP and Cambodia.

In March 2016 the organizing group of the « master program in Cambodia » has decided to change the program into a regional master that includes Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar. The courses will be held in Mandalay (Myanmar).
