The African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) is an educational centre in Cape Town, South Africa.
The goals of AIMS are:
To promote mathematics and science in Africa.
To recruit and train talented students and teachers.
To build capacity for African initiatives in education, research, and technology.
The Institute is focused around a nine-month, postgraduate course covering many of the most exciting areas of modern science, taught by outstanding African and international lecturers.
The course develops strong mathematical and computing problem-solving skills and leads to a postgraduate diploma in the Mathematical Sciences, formally accredited by the three partner South African Universities and taught in association with the Faculty of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, the Division of Physical Sciences at the University of Oxford, and the University of Paris-Sud 11.
Students with good mathematics, science or engineering degrees are invited to apply and will be supported on bursaries where needed.
The AIMS project is a concrete attempt to implement the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD, NEPADST), the vision of former South African President Thabo Mbeki and other African leaders.
