Mathematics is the science of quantity, space and spatial relations, change and structure. It employs theories and methods to discover patterns and formulate laws. Through abstraction and logical reasoning, mathematics is used for counting, calculations and measurements of any kind. This science is very frequently used in day to day life and is essential even for the activity of many other fields. Applied mathematics is focused on the use of mathematical knowledge in other fields like science and engineering, while pure mathematics is concerned with the filed itself. Statistics, game theory and computational mathematics are a few of the disciplines that have evolved from applied mathematics.
A student graduating from mathematics studies will have numeracy skills, knowledge of arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, good grasp of mathematical concepts and strong deductive reasoning, just to name a few. The graduates can also dedicate themselves to a teaching oriented career, in which they have to combine the mathematics related knowledge with pedagogy skills and convey the knowledge further to students.
This Master’s degree covers the whole chain of quantitative finance, from theoretical aspects to the application in a professional setting. This Master draws on the recognized excellence of our engineering school in quantitative finance, and makes great use of the collaborations with the Universities of Paris-Dauphine and Cergy-Pontoise.
The Master in Mathematics is a flexible high-standard curriculum that is close to the real needs of the students and the job market. Mathematics is part of the MINT disciplines, i.e. of those fields that offer nowadays outstanding professional perspectives .
Join us to gain a deep theoretical and conceptual knowledge of finance, economics, and quantitative skills. Prepare for a career using sophisticated technical financial tools within financial engineering, risk management, and the most highly quantitative roles.
The University of Queensland’s masters program in Financial Mathematics has been designed to meet industry demand for skilled practitioners. It will prepare you for a career in banking, insurance, investment, utilities and mining, and in an increasingly broad range of industries in which aspects of contemporary financial markets – such as international exchange rates, futures contracts and options – play a significant role.
The aim of the Master of Science program is to produce graduates that are equipped with essential scientific knowledge and an appreciation of the latest literature and technologies.
Taught by staff that blends the contributions of UNL professors and outstanding K-12 master teachers.
The Graduate Diploma in Maths and Engineering combines academic study, intensive English language teaching and study skills to prepare you for entry into a university Masters degree.
Statistics - Teaching is based on the most recent research, using mathematical background, needed in statistics, and forms a solid basis for PhD studies. Teaching and research is based both on classical statistics and Bayesian approaches.
The certificate in Space Studies is a research based study of critical space topics, including orbital mechanics, past and current space exploration endeavors, remote sensing, and the role of space in support of modern warfare.
This programme is designed for well-qualified students who wish to continue their mathematical studies beyond the level reached in a BSc degree (or equivalent). It provides students with opportunities to deepen and broaden their knowledge of mathematics and to engage in a significant research project under the supervision of a member of the Department of Mathematics.
You will study in a welcoming and informal yet research-intensive atmosphere. The degree programmes are flexible, and you can match the studies to your academic interests. While writing your Master’s thesis during the final year of your study, you will have an excellent opportunity to take part in current research projects running at the Department. A Master of Science degree at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics forms a solid basis for PhD studies.
The Master of Sciences in Geology offers students advanced teaching in various specialised areas of geology depending on the chosen orientation.
