The objective of the MSc programme in Applied Mathematics is to provide its students with a thorough knowledge of applicable mathematics and to develop their expertise in applying the methods and tools of mathematics to problems in science and engineering. For this it is crucial that the students obtain a broad experience in simulation and mathematical modelling of such problems, in the mathematical analysis of these models and in the implementation of the results.

The programme starts with the Master Kick-Off, which is held in an off campus location during the first 3 days of the academic year. The Master Kick-Off consists of lectures and social activities designed to help and guide all our freshman students in their Master’s Programme.

The Applied Mathematics programme is divided in eight quarters. At the end of each quarter or two quarters students carry out exams, depending on the length of the course. In the first year you will spend most of the time on courses, core courses as well as courses relevant to the specialisation you have chosen. The Compulsary Courses section consists of 5 courses of which 3 must be selected. Every one of those five courses belongs to one of the five specialisations.

For the Orientation Courses at least 2 courses have to be selected from MasterMath. Depending on the course, you will have several lectures in Amsterdam, Utrecht, Enschede or Eindhoven and can contain an intensive week at University of Twente. In this week you will focus on that particular course via lectures and/or projects.

The specialisation courses enable a deep specialisation for the optimal execution of your thesis project and are the main focus in the second semester. The free electives allow technical and non-technical courses, also from other faculties and universities, such as entrepreneurship, language and additional presentation courses, an internship or participation in an exchange program.

International Opportunities

If you want to expand your horizon and experience more of the world, you can choose to study abroad during the second or third semester of the programme. Whether you want to experience the lively and exhilarating city of Brisbane, learn from the Japanese approach of science or breathe the Swiss fresh air during an exchange programme, it is possible. In addition to international student exchanges for one semester, students may choose to write their Master’s thesis with a foreign partner as a client.

Test Scores

Admission requirements:

In most cases, if you hold a BSc degree and the Master’s programme is closely related to your Bachelor’s programme, you will be admitted directly into the programme. However, if the Master’s programme does not follow directly from your undergraduate programme, you will be required to take additional courses in what is called a bridging programme. This may be a standard programme, or it may be tailored to your specific situation.
