Mathematics for Applied Sciences, Industry and Services Track

MATHEMATICS MASTER DEGREE

MATHEMATICS FOR APPLIED SCIENCES, INDUSTRY AND SERVICES TRACK

Today’s reality poses application problems and technological challenges of considerable difficulty and of a highly multidisciplinary nature, in which a mathematical approach is becoming indispensable. Research and industry, processes and services, biological phenomena and natural dynamics, climate and the environment; all these require professionals with innovative mindsets and skills. Constant scientific and social progress is increasingly demanding application of these qualities to modelling, simulation, interpretation, resolution and optimisation of complex systems.

Our Mathematics for Applied Sciences, Industry and Services Master Degree Programme offers students a modern training approach: a flexible package of models, methods, algorithms and computational techniques enriching traditional mathematical training. The result? A solid and reliable core enveloped in advanced, adaptable and spendable specialisation.

Experience and competence are acquired through curricular courses in the areas of probability and statistics, mathematical physics, numerical analysis, operational research and computer science. The teaching programme is completed by laboratory activities, internships and theses, with possible Erasmus exchanges and internship grants, in collaboration with established and recognised international partners. The courses also prepare students for admission to PhD programmes in applied mathematics sectors and may be held in English.

The training programme includes the following common compulsory courses:

A further 36 course credits must be chosen from the complementary courses shown below. Choosing
