Course Programme Applied Mathematics 2015/2016

Programme requirements:

a) Continuous Optimization (6 EC) and Scientific Computing (6)

b) Philosophy of Engineering 5 EC.

c) In addition for the OR specialization a minimum of three courses out of a list of six have to be chosen; in addition for the SACS specialization three core courses are obligatory

d) a minimum of 12 EC in national courses (offered via;

e) electives so that the total number of EC’s adds up to at least 60;

f) 20 EC traineeship and 40 EC final project

Note. Depending on previous knowledge and the research area of your choice, the contact of your chair can add additional obligatory courses to your programme.

In the following table an overview of the courses is presented:
