The bachelor’s programme Applied Mathematics is a solid academic programme during which you immerse yourself in the nature – or the art, some would say – of mathematics. From day one you will engage in the abstract and formal aspects of mathematics, always keeping in mind its practical applicability. You will become familiar with calculus, linear algebra, probability and much more. At the same time you will engage in applying the theory. One way of doing this is modelling: using abstraction to reduce complex problems to their essence, as described in mathematical terms, and then using mathematical analysis to identify solutions to the original problem. Modelling requires skills that you will gradually develop through the different learning lines that run through the programme. These learning lines include abstract mathematics, mathematical modelling and practical skills – think of programming, (intercultural) collaboration or presentation.
A graduate of the Bachelor's programme Applied Mathematics will suffice in the eleven Programme Intended Learning Outcomes (PILO's), which are described in the Bachelor TER.
