Profile of the programme
The 2nd Cycle in Mathematics and Applications aims to train students with advanced knowledge and skills in Mathematics that allow them to understand, formulate and solve theoretical and practical problems, using specific methods of Mathematics
This study programme allows the choice of additional training options in Computer Science or in Economics and Management, areas in which Mathematics plays a fundamental role
Students, in addition to being able to continue their studies in a third cycle in Mathematics or other areas where a solid training in Mathematics is essential, will be able to directly enter the labor market in areas of activity where there is are markable growth in the demand for professionals with an advanced degree in Mathematics.
Key learning outcomes
The students in Mathematics and Applications will have a set of advanced knowledge, both in core areas of Mathematics with high potential for application (Analysis, Algebra, Geometry, Probability and Statistics, Operational Research), and in areas where Mathematics plays a fundamental role, such as IT, Economics and Management, which will allow to:
- build logical arguments and use mathematical demonstration techniques;
- mathematically model real problems;
- solve problems formulated in mathematical language;
- analyze data using mathematical and computational tools, interpreting the results critically;
- develop multidisciplinary work;
- communicate mathematical ideas.
Occupational profiles of graduates
These students will be able to enter a doctoral program in Mathematics (and Applications) or to exercise professional activity in sectors such as
- data science,
- logistics and transport,
- market studies,
- banking and
The present study programme will take place in the University's Pole IV, mainly in one of its buildings (6.ª Fase). There the course will have at its disposal:
- 16 classrooms;
- 6 amphitheaters;
- 5 computer rooms;
- 11 computer labs;
- one room equipped with didactic materials for Teaching Mathematics;
- areas/spaces reserved for individual study.
In the Departments of Mathematics, of Computer Science and of Management and Economics there are the secretariats, teachers' offices, rooms for master and PhD students, meeting rooms and the headquarters of the Research Units.
The Central Library, located in Pole I, adjacent to Pole IV, is open 24 hours a day, it is a noble space with a great bibliographic collection, wireless network, dozens of computers, excellent conditions for research, individual study and group work and printing and scanning systems.
There are also several snack-bars, canteens and residences nearby.
