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 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 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.
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 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.
English-taught Master's programme in Quantitative Economics is planned to start in autumn 2014. Full information on the programme will be available by December 15 2013. Applications will open as soon as the curriculum has been approved by the Ministry of Education and Research.
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).
This degree program focuses on mathematical models, advanced simulations and computer calculations. These means and methods are increasingly finding use in new technological developments.
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.
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.
