This is a 2-year graduate programme entirely taught in English, offered to both national and international students.
The MSc in Applied Mathematics aims at providing high-level competencies for the formalisation and the consequent mathematical analysis of problems arising from applied sciences and technologies, with a special focus on the analysis of big data systems and complex systems.
The programme provides courses that complete the basic mathematical competencies, covering all the main areas of Mathematics (Mathematical Logic, Algebra, Geometry, Mathematical Analysis, Mathematical Physics, Statistics, Numerical Analysis, Optimisations, Foundations of Mathematics).
Then, the student has a choice of courses focused in areas where the support of advanced mathematical methods is fundamental in recent scientific researches and developing technologies. These courses cover topics such as the theory of formal languages, discrete methods in Mathematics, the applications of data analysis, bioinformatics and information systems for understanding structures in big data systems and networks, the techniques for modelling, analyzing and simulating complex dynamic systems, discrete event systems and nonlinear control systems.
Welcome in Siena
The University of Siena is one of the oldest universities in Europe, having been founded in 1240.
Its history has evolved alongside Tuscany’s cultural tradition from the Middle Ages to modern times.
Siena is located in the heart of Tuscany amid a landscape of gently rolling hills. Built on three steep hills and encircled by ancient walls, it is a unique city where students can spend a profitable study period, full of opportunities for their personal enrichment.
