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 M.Sc. program takes two full years of study. All M.Sc. students complete their Individual Plans of Study (IPS). The IPS includes some mandatory items. However, most courses are student chosen (students can choose from a certain number of special topics courses and a certain number of research seminars). A course project must be completed by the end of the first year. By the end of their course of study, students are required to submit a Master’s thesis.
Increasingly, developers make use of mathematical models, advanced simulations, and sophisticated (computer) computations. With this program you can for example develop new and innovative technologies
The Master in Mathematics at the University of Luxembourg provides a broad education and a strong background in Mathematics. It enables our students to proceed to the forefront of knowledge in one of the major fields of present-day Mathematics.
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.
With a program designed by educators for educators, the M.S. in Education (M.S.Ed.) focuses on the knowledge and skills you need to help students succeed today. Delivered in an online format, this program explores best practices and the latest research. Observe master teachers in their classrooms and learn proven techniques for creating supportive learning environments.
This is a one year advanced taught course. The aim of this course is to bring students in twelve months to the frontier of elementary particle theory. This course is intended for students who have already obtained a good first degree in either physics or mathematics, including in the latter case courses in quantum mechanics and relativity.
Nijmegen mathematicians are master thinkers of world renown. Their power to think and calculate has enabled them to provide solutions to innumerable questions in science and in everyday life. Mathematics can ensure more efficient logistics, better computer information systems and a deeper understanding of natural phenomena. Our Master's programme offers you a thorough, theoretical education while maintaining a clear perspective on concrete applications.
The MSc in Mathematics course has been designed for students who want to continue their mathematics studies by delving more deeply into particular aspects of pure and applied mathematics. The modules may well be of interest to mathematically inclined scientists and engineers as well as to mathematicians.
This innovative and interdisciplinary program provides students with comprehensive knowledge in the field of applied mathematics. With a special focus on applications.
This programme is offered from 2016. Are you dedicated to working with applied mathematics and using it in practice? Is it your dream to help develop the newest technology used in for instance computers and robots? In that case, Mathematical Engineering is the programme for you.
Our department offers instruction that leads to a master's degree with a balance between pure and applied mathematics. Our masters program is also offered via distance education and enrolls students from all over the country. Our students enjoy the benefits of small classes and a close relationship with the faculty.
