This program concentrates on learning advanced mathematical methods and applications of mathematics. The core subjects are analysis, applied probability and stochastic processes, statistics and data analysis, optimization and operations research, numerical analysis and scientific computing and financial mathematics. The students learn how to approach diverse modeling problems and gain hands-on experience in an industrial setting during the internship.

Graduates will be prepared for an attractive, diverse and growing job market. They will have a high level of competency in formulating and analyzing complex models and will learn how to extract relevant parameters, to simulate the system under consideration, make forecasts and to compare expected results with factual data. Recent graduates have found jobs in banks, engineering companies, the automobile industry, governmental offices, pharmaceutics, consulting companies and in the nutrition industry. The Master of Science in Applied Mathematics is also an excellent foundation for students planning to follow a PhD program in applied mathematics, financial mathematics or statistics.
