The educational profile of the programme is characterized on the one hand by the two specializations within the programme and on the other hand by the attention paid to mathematical modelling.
You will not take any courses in the second year of your programme. Instead, you will be working on an internship and your graduation assignment. In the final phase of the Master’s, you will work as a junior member of the research group affiliated with your chosen specialization, and will have every opportunity to show that you have what it takes to be a professional in the field of Applied Mathematics.

The Departments of Mathematics of the Dutch universities have combined their efforts to enhance their Master's programmes in mathematics. Part of the cooperation is aimed at organizing joint courses in mathematics. These courses offer you the highest quality of instruction and open up opportunities for interaction with students of other institutes of mathematics. In our Master's programme you will take two or more courses that are offered by Mastermath.
