The Master of Mathematical Sciences is focused on applications of mathematics (operations research, applied probability and stochastic processes, statistics, numerical analysis and scientific computing). This degree positions ideally for a career in various fields such as financial mathematics, banking and insurance, data analysis, industrial modelling and computation. It can also be a springboard for research in applied mathematics.
The Master in Mathematical Sciences offers two orientations: Applied mathematics and Statistics and finance.
The aim of the orientation Applied Mathematics is a broad training in a variety of mathematical topics. The second orientation Statistics & Finance trains its graduates in the fields of mathematical finance and statistics.
The 120 ECTS Master programme in Mathematical Sciences offers two orientations:
Both orientations consist of :
- 2 semesters of courses (60 ECTS)
- 1 semester of engineering internship (30 ECTS)
- 1-semester Master's thesis (30 ECTS) in a research lab (EPFL or partner university)
Anyone holding a Bachelor's degree from a recognized university can apply to the EPFL Masters Programmes. However, please be aware that admission is competitive. Only candidates with excellent academic records and references have good chances to be accepted.
The Master programme of Mathematical Sicences is taught in English and French (some courses in English, others in French). The EPFL recommends students entering the programme to have at least a B2 level of the teaching languages (defined by the Common European Framework of Reference for languages scale). A C1 level would allow candidates to follow the courses in good conditions.
No work experience is required.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS we offer you the chance to receive up to £10,000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
