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.
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.
Master's degree candidates in Operations Research are required to write a thesis based on independent, usually applied, research. SM students are required to present their research to the OR Community at the end of their second year, prior to their graduation. The presentation should be scheduled for at least an hour and an announcement should be sent to the ORC students and faculty via email two weeks in advance. Students generally allow for a two-year program.
The Postgraduate Certificate in Mathematics is awarded on successful completion of 60 credits of postgraduate mathematics study. The certificate course is a valuable qualification in itself or it can be the first qualification in a programme of mathematics study leading to a postgraduate diploma or an MSc.
Applied mathematics and statistics is an integral part of emerging fields such as computational medicine/biology, language processing, information security, and computer science. In today’s data-intensive world, it is used to answer questions and solve problems in areas as diverse as finance, government and law, medicine, and national defense.
Walden University’s Online Master in Education offers starting and veteran teachers alike the chance to become more effective teachers and improve student results. The Elementary Reading and Mathematics (Grades K-6) specialization offers you an effective skill set to use in order to cultivate a love for learning in your students by building essential knowledge of reading and mathematics.
The Master of Science (Science and Mathematics Education) provides experienced teachers and educators with a practical toolkit for professional development. The course includes both small scale research projects and coursework units covering effective use of ICT in schools and classroom learning environments, pedagogical issues related to the use of computers, the impact on the teacher's role and the use of multimedia and the Internet in the classroom.
At UC San Diego, we provide courses of study that introduce students to the fundamentals of mathematics and allow them to master the most important parts of the subject both pure and applied. By offering four graduate programs, and with a faculty encompassing a variety of fields, the department seeks to accommodate varied student interests in mathematics, encouraging an interdisciplinary focus that fosters program diversity.
This academic program, for students registered in the Department of Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics, emphasizes applied mathematics research in nonlinear dynamics, fluid mechanics, and scientific computation, with a current emphasis on geophysical, biophysical, and plasma physics applications.
Biostatistics MS degrees are traditionally geared for those who want a career in research and academics. The MS-Plan B program takes two academic years for full-time students, but we also accept part-time students and will help plan a schedule for completing the MS. The University of Minnesota, School of Public Health, Division of Biostatistics has an international reputation for excellence in methodological and applied research and training. Biostatistics students enjoy small classes and individual faculty attention, state-of-the-art computing facilities, proximity to a large academic health center, a strong record in job placement, teaching and research assistantships, and opportunities for work experience in clinical trials and other areas of research.
The URV-UOC online Master's Degree in Computer Engineering and Mathematics (ECiM) offers interdisciplinary training in the areas of engineering and applied sciences. The ECiM programme includes cutting-edge topics such as computer modelling and simulation, numerical methods, parallel and distributed computing, knowledge representation, networks and graphs, and applied optimisation. The aim of the degree is to prepare students for R&D positions in industry, research centres and universities. It is intended for graduates with various scientific and technical qualifications (computer engineering, mathematics, telecommunications engineering, industrial engineering, statistics, physics, etc.).
These guidelines are intended to help familiarize graduate students in the Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Applied Mathematics program with the policies governing this degree program. All the guidelines apply to both the on-campus M.Sc. degree and the on-line M.Sc. degree, unless otherwise specified.
The Master's in Telecommunications Program offers students a unique opportunity to engage in cross-disciplinary coursework from both the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of the A. James Clark School of Engineering and the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland. This extraordinary combination culminates in a degree that prepares students for the broad range of rigors and issues that encompass the dynamic telecommunications industry.
