Applied mathematics deals with a wide range of disciplines in different areas, as science, technology, business and industry. Applied mathematics aims to solve practical problems using mathematical methods and models, such as materials analysis and processing, weather forecasting, financial services, network management and many more tasks. Applied mathematics can include mathematical disciplines such as mathematics of engineering, linear programming, continuous modeling, numerical analysis, statistics, information theory, game theory, etc.
This program provides opportunities for motivated and highly qualified students to undertake advanced study and to produce a research-based dissertation. Students will develop appropriate research skills and specialist area knowledge that will enhance their career prospects or allow them to proceed to further appropriate higher degree studies.
There is a rapidly increasing demand for specialists who are able to exploit the new wealth of information in large and complex datasets to improve analysis, prediction and decision making. The programme focuses on modern developments in the intersection of statistics, artificial intelligence and database management, providing the participants with unique competence in the labour market.
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 of Science in Space Studies program is devoted to the interdisciplinary study of space, including the historical, political, economic, legal, commercial, scientific and technical issues that make up this complex field of study.
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.
Building from a core in applied statistics, the MS in Analytics provides students with advanced analytical training to develop their ability to draw insights from big data, including: data collection, preparation and integration; statistical methods and modeling; and other sophisticated techniques for analyzing complex data.
As an applied mathematician, you occupy a key position in the scientific world. Through mathematical models, you grasp the essence of a problem and see links between seemingly unrelated phenomena.
This programme educates top-level experts in computational and statistical data analysis, who possess knowledge and skills for the aforementioned tasks and understand the overall processes of data analysis.
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.
The Master's programme in Econometrics and Operations Research is an academic programme focusing on the development and application of quantitative methods for analysing economic issues in a broad sense.
This course aims to train students from a variety of academic backgrounds to work as statisticians in various sectors including higher education, research institutions, the pharmaceutical industry, central government and national health services.
This programme focuses on analysis and number theory, offering specialisations in both themes. The staff participate in leading research projects and offer high-quality teaching.
