Become a mathematical problem solver able to tackle challenging issues from technology to healthcare.
Can you predict when something goes viral? How do you model 5G? What happens in your brain when an epileptic seizure occurs? These questions all have one thing in common: mathematics is the way to come up with answers. In this 2 years master’s at the University of Twente (UT) you will apply mathematics to challenging issues in the most diverse sectors, ranging from technology to healthcare. You will learn how to discover new patterns and how to predict them through mathematical models. As a graduate you will have an impact on society as well as be in huge demand on the job market.
The Master's in Applied Mathematics is entirely in English. You will start your studies in September or February. This also applies to the pre-master’s. Read more about the:
After obtaining your master’s you will have plenty of job opportunities to choose from. You could opt for a career in healthcare, e.g. using mathematics to improve capacity management, diagnostics, or employing mathematical neuroscience models to better understand how the human nervous system works. You could also work in the media industry, applying deep learning networks to achieve better social network filtering, use your knowledge of algorithms and machine learning to create models for predicting earthquakes, or supporting the energy transition. You might also pursue a career in optimisation in various fields, ranging from business to societal and environmental services. Of course, you can also choose to first expand your specialist knowledge base by pursuing a PhD or PDEng programme as offered by the UT’s Twente Graduate School (TGS).
