Master of Mathematical Engineering (Leuven)

KU Leuven: Faculty of Engineering Science
Campus Full time Part time 1 year September 2018 Belgium Leuven + 1 more

Without mathematical tools, there would be no internet search engines, no weather forecast, no security in banking. Mathematical models and techniques play an important role in automatic pilot technologies, the design of quieter cars, the optimisation of wind farms, medical scanners, etc. At first sight, these applications have little in common, but they all process a large amount of data. Mathematics is becoming critical in many applications because of increasing model complexity and higher demands from customers and the environment. [+]
