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 programme will suit anyone who is interested in mathematics and wants to apply his or her skills to problem solving and for creating new mathematical models. It also gives you the possibility to start an academic career.
The Master of Financial Mathematics is designed to meet the strongly increasing demand for skilled quantitative finance professionals to provide expert support to a wide range of industries including banking, insurance, utility companies, investment companies and companies affected by international exchange rates.
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.
The International Master in Multichannel Marketing Management (IM4) is a programme that aims to develop the knowledge and skills that a future manager working in marketing should have. This is achieved during the master by a combination of activities that aim to build a theoretical background for the participant but also enable them to apply this knowledge and skills in the real business world, with a particular focus on the Italian best practices.
In order to live up to all expectations, including the best teaching quality and hope of a prosperous employability, we have created the major with variety of specialities. There is the common core of all programs consisting of several subjects related to different mathematical areas. Specialized subjects refer to Informatics, Cryptology, Finance and Insurance, Teaching. Such a division allows us to train specialist who are able to work creatively for banking, finance companies, public security units as well as to teach at schools of each educational level.
The focus of the M.S. in Statistics Program is the development of sophisticated statistical models and their implementation on high performance computing platforms.
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics is a large, diverse, and active organization. The department’s mission is to provide excellent instruction, conduct high-quality research and scholarly activity, and prepare graduates and provide mathematical and statistical services that are both regionally relevant and internationally competitive. The department offer students the opportunity to pursue master’s and doctoral level graduate studies in a collegial environment with small class sizes and high faculty-student interaction and research activity.
The focus of the M.S. in Mathematics Program is the development of sophisticated mathematical models and their implementation on high performance computing platforms. The curriculum features a balance of application, computation, and theory with particular emphasis in the areas of operations research, computational science, and the development of probabilistic and deterministic models. Areas of faculty and graduate student research activity include computational biology, computational finance, molecular dynamics simulation, operations research, optimization, and Ramsey theory. The program is particularly effective at preparing graduates to work in business, industry, or government as well as preparing students to continue on to the CSS Ph.D. or other Ph.D. program.
