Master in Mathematics

During the last half of the twentieth century, striking applications of Mathematics appeared in all natural sciences, even in behavioural and social sciences. From Life Sciences (DNA studies) to Information Technology (cellular phones, microprocessors, internet, GPS devices), from Theoretical Physics (fundamental structure of matter, gravitation, cosmos) to Geology (oil reserves), from Medical Technology (computerized axial tomography scanners) to Economics (stochastic and economic processes, finance markets), Mathematics had an ineradicable imprint on each part of modern science and everyday life.



Mathematics is thus, beyond its fascinating and challenging aspects, one of the disciplines that offer outstanding professional perspectives in business, finance, industry, research, education and more.

Graduates are hired because of their much-needed highly specialized knowledge, but also due to their mastery of mathematical methods, their competence to analyse problems in depth and to implement the most efficient solutions.
