Mathematics

An MSc, or Master of Science, is an academic distinction bestowed upon those who effectively complete a predetermined set of coursework in what is often a science-based discipline. The MSc often enhances career opportunities as well as earning potential.

An education in mathematics can provide the foundation for further study or work in technical and scientific fields that highly utilize mathematics. Courses of study in mathematics can range from a minor to a PhD program.

The Netherlands is a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, consisting of twelve provinces in North-West Europe and three islands in the Caribbean. English speaking students will have no problems finding suitable courses. For international students applying to universities in the Netherlands, several scholarships are available.

Why does one car have more air resistance than another? How can a satellite be kept in an orbit around the earth? Applied mathematicians provide the necessary theoretical background to such questions.

Applied Mathematics is concerned with the development and application of mathematical tools for the analysis and design of dynamical systems that appear in modern technology. Mathematical modelling of the problems appearing there plays a basic role, followed by (numerical) analysis, (computer) simulation, and design of controllers to make the systems behave according to the desired specifications. Interaction with other disciplines and with specialists in the fields of application is essential.... [-]

MSc Mathematics

How does a bank check whether your digital signature is a valid one? Do the planets move in stable orbits or will they eventually collide? How can, within the three-dimensional figures, a 3D-sphere 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, to find scientific literature on the subject, and to determine whether the problem can be solved by using existing mathematical theory or whether the 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.... [-]
