Masters in Applied Mathematics

Applied mathematics is an interdisciplinary field that deals with the application of mathematics to practical problems in physical sciences, social sciences, technology, engineering or business. Applied mathematics can include different mathematical branches such as mathematics of engineering, linear programming, continuous modelling, numerical analysis, statistics, information theory, game theory, etc.

The study of applied mathematics involves both in-depth mathematical understanding and basic knowledge of other subjects, depending on the chosen area of expertise. Colleges and universities offer a great number of specialisations: mathematical biology, combinatorics, mathematical finance, applied analysis, topography, computational neuroscience, probability, risk and statistics, and many more.

Besides mathematical knowledge and analytical reasoning, students will need knowledge of problem-formulation and problem-solving techniques, good work management skills, a high capacity to conceptualise and to communicate results and arguments.

Graduates in applied mathematics have the opportunity to develop careers in many fields and working environments including education and academic research, technology services or the pharmaceutics industry. They can also work in engineering, programming, finance, business, or they can provide services for non-profit organizations, corporations or governmental institutions.
