Bachelor's degree in Mathematics or Applied Mathematics. This is merely an indication of required background knowledge. The admissions board determines whether the specific contents of this/these course(s) meet the admission requirements of the master programme for which you applied.
Months of entry
How does a bank check whether your digital signature is a valid one? Do planets move in stable orbits or will they eventually collide? How can a 3D-sphere within the 3D-figures be characterized?
The mathematics behind these questions is dealt with in the Master's degree programme in Mathematics. The objective of the Master's degree in Mathematics is to teach you the mathematical knowledge, skills and attitude needed to pursue a professional (research) career.
You will gain specialized mathematical knowledge in selected areas such as algebra and geometry, dynamical systems and analysis, and statistics probability theory. Furthermore, you will learn how to solve a problem by using abstraction and modelling and to find scientific literature on the subject. You will be able to determine whether the problem can be solved by using existing mathematical theory or whether new theory should be developed. Finally, you will learn how to present mathematical results in written and oral form, for both specialized and general audiences.
The Master's programme in Mathematics offers four specialisations:
* Algebra and Geometry
* Dynamical Systems and Analysis
* Statistics and Probability
* Science, Business and Policy
