Established in 2012 with the support of the Government of Ghana, AIMS Ghana is the third Centre of Excellence to be created under the AIMS Global Network (AIMS Next Einstein Initiative). AIMS Ghana offers:
- A Master’s in Mathematical Sciences through a Structured 10-month research-oriented program
- African Masters in Machine Intelligence (AMMI)
- A Masters in Mathematical Sciences for Teachers (MMST)
Additionally, AIMS Ghana Master’s programs are accredited by the National Accreditation Board (Ghana). Since its inception, AIMS Ghana has graduated over 500 students, 33% of them being women.
AIMS has been providing outstanding education to Africa’s top talents since 2003, with graduates developing the skills, knowledge, networks and inspiration to take up careers in teaching, industry, business and governance. Its unique training program teaches analytical thinking and problem-solving skills, and exposes students to many applied fields which are of relevance to Africa’s development, such as finance, health, food production, climate change, natural resource management, technology and others.
The African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) is a pan-African network of Centres of Excellence for postgraduate training in mathematical sciences, research, and public engagement in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Founded in 2003 in South Africa by acclaimed physicist Prof Neil Turok and later replicated in Senegal, Ghana, Cameroon and Rwanda, AIMS is leading Africa’s socio-economic transformation through:
• Innovative scientific training (the development of human capital);
• Technological advances and cutting-edge scientific discoveries; and
• Public engagement for the continent’s scientific emergence.
Africa’s youth are at the heart of the AIMS innovation and transformation ecosystem which consists of a set of academic and non-academic programs expertly tailored to provide AIMS learners with a unique postgraduate training experience on the continent.
AIMS offers a Master’s in mathematical sciences, including a co-operative option with a direct link to industry, the African Master’s in Machine Intelligence (AMMI), as well as research programs, with over 100 researchers conducting studies across the network. In addition to the AIMS Industry Initiative and a gender-responsive Teacher Training Program currently implemented in Cameroon and Rwanda, AIMS equally created two critical initiatives: Quantum Leap Africa, a think tank looking into the coming quantum revolution and the Next Einstein Forum to propel Africa on to the global scientific stage.
