The Applied Mathematics programme offered by the University of Twente is as much about attitude and motivation as it is about pure mathematics. Applied mathematics has largely developed in response to the need to formulate and solve problems in a diversity of fields. In short, it is the language of scientific communication par excellence.

About

The Applied Mathematics programme offered by the University of Twente offers an environment where you can specialize in modern mathematical techniques, working closely with other academic disciplines such as physics, (industrial) engineering, logistics and computer science. You will be considered a junior member of the research department and actively participate in your supervisor’s research programme.

Applied mathematics distinguishes itself from pure mathematics in that it draws inspiration for its own development from interaction with related fields such as physics, astronomy, chemistry, biology, economics and computer science, to name but a few.

A Master’s degree in Applied Mathematics will open a great many doors in your future career. Regardless of whether you opt to work for a company, a consulting firm, a research institute or a university, it represents a crucial step in your development and makes you a highly prized professional.

Career

Graduates of the Master’s programme in Applied Mathematics find employment in numerous sectors of industry and academia such as R&D departments in industry, consultancy firms, research and teaching positions, teaching at high schools and even higher management.

In our technology-dependent society, commercial and governmental organizations have a growing need for professionals with an up-to-date background in applied mathematics at an academic level. Naturally there are also numerous careers awaiting applied mathematicians in academia, where these skills are in high demand as well.
