As an applied mathematician, you occupy a key position in the scientific world. Through mathematical models, you grasp the essence of a problem and see links between seemingly unrelated phenomena.
The two-year master’s in Applied Mathematics is an internationally oriented programme and is taught entirely in English. You can start in September or in February. Read more about the master's programme, pre-master's programme and admission. You can also find more information about career perspectives.
We also offer a bachelor's programme (BSc.) in Applied Mathematics.
- Mathematical Systems Theory, Applied Analysis and Computational Science
- Operations Research
- Mathematics of Data Science
This Master’s programme is as much about attitude and motivation as it is about pure mathematics. Applied mathematics has largely developed in response to the need to formulate and solve problems in a diversity of fields. In short, it is the language of scientific communication par excellence.
The programme offers an environment where you can specialize in modern mathematical techniques, working closely with other academic disciplines such as physics, (industrial) engineering, logistics and computer science. You will be considered a junior member of the research department and actively participate in your supervisor’s research programme.
Applied Mathematics distinguishes itself from pure mathematics in that it draws inspiration for its own development from interaction with related fields such as physics, astronomy, chemistry, biology, economics and computer science, to name but a few.
A Master’s degree in Applied Mathematics will open a great many doors in your future career. Regardless of whether you opt to work for a company, a consulting firm, a research institute or a university, it represents a crucial step in your development and makes you a highly prized professional.
