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 programme at the University of Twente (UT) you will apply mathematics to challenging issues in the most diverse sectors, 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 be important to society as well hugely in demand on the job market.
The Master's programme in Applied Mathematics is entirely in English. You will start your studies in September or February. This also applies to the pre-Master’s programme. Read more about the:

After obtaining your Master’s degree you will have plenty of job opportunities to choose from. You could opt for a career in healthcare, e.g. using mathematics to improve certain 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, or use your knowledge of algorithms and machine learning to create models for predicting earthquakes. 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).
