The Master of Science programme in Applied Mathematics is meant for students having a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics or in an area providing a sufficiently advanced background in mathematics. Students may apply for admission with the Admissions Office of TU Delft.
The Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Mathematics of TU Delft gives entrance to the MSc Programme without selection. The same applies to BSc degrees in (Applied) Mathematics from the other Dutch universities and to corresponding degrees from Imperial College London, ETH Zürich and RWTH Aachen. Further information concerning admission can be obtained from the Admissions Office of TU Delft, from the Study advisers or from the Director of Studies in Applied Mathematics.
The objective of the MSc programme in Applied Mathematics is to provide its students with a thorough knowledge of applicable mathematics and to develop their expertise in applying the methods and tools of mathematics to problems in science and engineering. For this it is crucial that the students obtain a broad experience in simulation and mathematical modeling of such problems, in the mathematical analysis of these models and in the implementation of the results. Moreover, they should have sufficient insight in the underlying mathematical theory in order to be able to develop new mathematical methods and techniques if needed.
It is a two-year full-time programme, to be concluded with a Master s thesis. In total the programme amounts to 120 EC. Within this Master s programme the student may choose one of the following specializations.
* Computational Science and Engineering
* Probability, Risk and Statistics
The MSc Applied Mathematics is a two-year full-time programme, to be concluded with a Masters thesis. In total the programme amounts to 120 EC.
1. Common core courses (18 EC)
The three courses in this part are compulsory for all students in the MSc Programme in Applied Mathematics
2. Orientation part (12 EC)
The student chooses two courses from a list of eight that are offered in the context of the cooperation among the three technical universities in the Netherlands
3. Mathematics Electives (18-30 EC)
The courses in this specialization part of the programme can be chosen from the lists of courses offered by the two specializations. Also courses from the orientation part may be included.
4. Non-Mathematics Electives (18-30 EC)
This part should be filled with courses from disciplines other than mathematics (such as technical subjects, computer science, management; the codes of these courses should not start with WI), a practical study (in The Netherlands or abroad), teacher training, etc. For students with a Bachelors degree outside of mathematics this part can also be used to compensate for deficiencies if necessary.
5. Masters Thesis (42 Ec)
This includes a research project, a written report and an oral presentation.
