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.
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
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.
Traditionally number theory used the methods of algebra and analysis, to solve problems such as finding the number of integral of solutions of equations. In recent times geometric methods have been playing a more important role. Also, number theory has important applications in areas such as cryptography, theoretical computer science, and numerical mathematics. The ALGANT master course aims at introducing students into the latest developments of this fascinating subject.
The Masters programme in Mathematics is a joint programme between KTH and Stockholm University (SU) and leads to a joint masters degree. The specializations are directed towards areas corresponding to research groups at KTH and SU, taking full advantage of the broad spectrum of competence available.
Department of Applied Physics is located at the Kuopio Campus of the University of Eastern Finland (UEF) and offers two Master's degree programmes in English. Prerequisites for the both programmes are a university-level Bachelor's (B.Sc.) degree or equivalent on a suitable field of science, and a good command of academic English.
The Program aims at providing highly qualified professionals for scientifically and technologically demanding sectors of industry and services, by means of a solid background in pure and applied mathematics. The Program also provides the background needed by prospective PhD students, not only in mathematics, but also in other areas of science and engineering where mathematics plays an essential role.
The modules offered in this postgraduate certificate may well be of interest to mathematically inclined scientists and engineers, as well as to mathematicians. The information on this page is provisional and subject to change.
The sequencing of the human genome has been one of the most significant scientific advances of the last few decades and could not have been achieved without bioinformatics. Bioinformatics now plays a key role not only in genetics but in many other fields, such as AIDS research and cancer therapy. Saarland University is one of the leading centres of bioinformatics in Germany.
Students in the Nuclear and Particle Physics Master Programme take basic and advanced courses in nuclear physics and particle physics and courses devoted to various experimental techniques.
Studying mathematics at Aalborg University will give you a new experience and perspective. During the last 40 years, the university has successfully carried out project-organized education in mathematics and statistics after the Aalborg Model for Problem Based Learning (PBL).
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.
The Graduate Diploma in Science provides an opportunity for graduates to upgrade or extend their qualifications in a field of study not covered in depth in their undergraduate studies. Study programs are designed to meet the candidate's interests and academic background and involve a combination of course work selected from a chosen field of study.
