Course content

The Master of Science in Applied Mathematics aims at training specialists that, besides a solid basis in the fundamentals of mathematics, also have an extensive knowledge of problems and methods in related areas of science and technology.

After broadening their knowledge of theoretical aspects of mathematics with advanced courses in logic, algebra, geometry and calculus, and of application-oriented areas such as statistics, mathematical modeling, numerical analysis and optimization, the students will complete their plan of study with subjects related to more applied fields, like data analysis or the study of complex systems.

These specialists will therefore be able to analyze problems not only within the mathematical domain but also in related sectors, to identify the mathematical instruments necessary to formalize and solve them, and to interact effectively with experts of other disciplines (computer science, engineering, economics and experimental sciences).

Information for international students

Admission to the MSc Programmes is open to graduates who have a recognized degree (bachelor or equivalent) in engineering, computer science, mathematics or physics. In any case, the admission is decided by the Enrolment Committee on the basis of personal CV.

Fees and funding

UK students
up to 2,000 Euros
International students
up to 2,000 Euros

The annual fee is divided into three installments, as follows:

  • 1st instalment: fixed rate based on the type of degree course (humanities, science, EU regulated).
  • 2nd instalment: calculated based on income.
  • 3rd instalment: calculated based on merit.

The fee can also vary in the presence of any applicable benefits or exemptions.


Students enrolling at the University of Siena can apply for a DSU (Regional Body for the Right of University Studies) scholarship. The application is open until September/October of each year.

Scholarship assignees will receive a sum of money (covering University fees) and have free access to University canteens and free accommodation at halls of residence, if admitted. Should such accommodation not be available, assignees will be given a rent contribution, if requested.
