Wiskunde

Programma-opties

  • Algemene Wiskunde (specialisatie)

    Bij wiskunde algemeen ligt het accent op de theoretische aspecten van wiskunde.

    De grondslagen van de wiskunde komen aan de orde evenals de kernbegrippen van de klassieke en moderne logica, en de relatie tussen natuurwetenschappen en filosofie.

    Er zijn binnen deze richting drie interessegebieden:

    • Natuurkunde - Elektriciteit & Magnetisme, Golven & Optica, en Kwantumfysica;
    • Wiskunde - Chaostheorie, Beveiliging & Codes, en Algebraïsche Structuren;
    • Logica & Filosofie - Model, Oneindigheid & Paradox, en Wetenschapsfilosofie.
  • Statistiek en Econometrie (specialisatie)

    Bij de richting Statistiek & Econometrie verdiep je je in de statistiek en wiskunde zoals die in de economische vakgebieden gebruikt worden.

    De onderwerpen lopen uiteen van economische analyses en voorspellingen tot optimaal voorraadbeheer en planning. Vakken zijn bijvoorbeeld Finance Theory and Modelling, Dynamic Econometrics, en Calculus of Variations and Optimal Control.

Studeren in het buitenland

  • Studeren in het buitenland is facultatief
  • Maximaal 30 EC

Exchange: All our science and engineering programmes offer study abroad possibilities at a number of partner institutions. Our partners include top-100 universities in Europe (for example in Germany, UK, and Sweden) and in the USA, China, South-East Asia, and South America. Our exchange programmes have a typical duration of one semester and count toward your final degree.

We bieden de mogelijkheid in het buitenland te studeren bij een aantal partnerinstituten. Onder onze partners zijn ook een aantal top 100-universiteiten in Europa (oa Duitsland, Groot-Brittannië en Zweden) en in de VS, China, Zuidoost-Azië en Zuid-Amerika. Een periode in het buitenland duurt meestal 3 tot 6 maanden (15 tot 30 EC).

(Bindend) studieadvies

  • Minimaal 45 EC in de eerste 12 maanden (bindend)

You will be issued a study advice at the end of your first year of study. You can expect a positive study advice if you have earned at least 45 ECTS credit points (out of a total of 60 ECTS; most course units are 5 ECTS). If you have earned fewer than 45 ECTS and are issued a negative study advice, you will not be allowed to continue your degree programme.

You will receive a preliminary study advice in December to make sure that you know where you are. Please contact your study advisor as soon as possible if you have any questions about the BSA system.

Aan het einde van je eerste studiejaar krijg je een bindend studieadvies. Je krijgt een positief studieadvies als je minimaal 45 ECTS hebt gehaald (op een totaal van 60 ECTS; de meeste vakken zijn 5 ECTS). Bij een negatief studieadvies (minder dan 45 ECTS) mag je helaas niet doorgaan met de opleiding.

Om ervoor te zorgen dat je precies weet waar je staat, krijg je al in december een voorlopig studieadvies. Heb je vragen over het bindend studieadvies of over je studievoortgang, neem dan zo snel mogelijk contact op met je studieadviseur.

    Mathematics fascinates me

    'Mathematics fascinates me. I love it when a seemingly far-fetched relationship actually works in practice.

    I enjoy the tutorials the most, because you can try things out for yourself. Learning mathematics is really a question of practice. Some of the theorems are very challenging, so it’s really satisfying if you manage to figure them out. We often work together on more difficult problems, which is a good way to get to know each other. I’ve also met a lot of people through the FMF study association and my student association. Although it’s not compulsory, I go to all the lectures and tutorials. This keeps you busy and helps you understand the theory, which makes the exam a lot easier.’

    I've got to know a lot of companies that I might happily work for later!

    'There's so much to do in Groningen! And there's plenty to do at our Faculty too.

    Mathematics and Applied Mathematics are interesting enough as it is, but I also did the Honours College, where you follow additional lectures and projects outside your own specialist area. I am also an active member of the FMF, the study association for students of Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Physics, Applied Physics, Computer Science and Astronomy. You can learn a lot, experience how an educational or commercial organization works, and you get to meet a lot of people. The highlight for me was a year on the board of the study association, which was exhilarating and enlightening. Each year, the FMF organizes lectures, site visits and excursions, as well as get-togethers and film evenings, which all help strengthen the bond between you and your fellow students. It’s fun and a good way to prepare for life after university. For example, I’ve got to know a lot of companies that I might happily work for later!

    Bestuderen van ijskappen

    Na mijn studie wilde ik heel graag praktisch aan de slag. Zodoende heb ik twee jaar lang in Capelle a/d IJssel gewerkt als consultant bij Alten, een bedrijf in technische consultancy en engineering. Hier deed ik hoofdzakelijk ontwikkeling van software (Fortran, C++) voor Shell.

    Dit heb ik met veel plezier gedaan, maar het begon op een gegeven moment weer te kriebelen en ben ik iets nieuws gaan zoeken. Tegenwoordig ben ik promovendus aan de Universiteit Utrecht, waar ik onderzoek doe naar veranderingen in de Groenlandse en Antarctische ijskappen in het recente verleden (1850-nu). Voor dit onderzoek maak ik gebruik van data-assimilatie technieken en klimaatmodellen.

    In beide banen heb ik veel profijt van mijn goede wiskundige basis en de programmeervaardigheden die ik tijdens mijn studie Technische Wiskunde heb opgedaan. Verder heb ik één jaar van mijn master doorgebracht in Zürich, Zwitserland. Ik heb daar verschillende interessante dingen geleerd, maar het is tevens een terugkerend gespreksonderwerp geweest bij sollicitatiegesprekken. Het is, vermoed ik, op veel plaatsen een pre als je cv niet helemaal standaard is.

    Find out more about depression

    'I am exploring statistical models that we can use to find out more about depression, together with other experts such as physicians, psychologists and epidemiologists. This makes the work pleasantly varied'.

    During my Master’s programme I specialized in probability and statistics, which is obviously very useful for this job. Thanks to my mathematical background, I learn new techniques easily. What you don’t learn in Mathematics are skills such as meeting and communicating with other scientists. I don’t think you need to offer all these skills in a degree programme; you can learn them by participating in activities outside your programme. I was a member of a study association and a student association, where I learnt organizational skills, and also enjoyed the social side of student life. This was very important for my personal development and I wouldn’t have missed it for the world!’

    Talk to the people who are already working in the field

    I like maths since I was a child. Unlike other subjects, it's more 'doing' and less memorizing facts.

    At this moment. I’m working as a PhD candidate in mathematical statistics. I spend around 75% of my time on research: reading articles, trying things out, programming and appointments with my supervisor. 25% of time is spent on teaching: preparing exercises/solutions for the class, giving tutorials, and grading assignments/exams. I also often go to presentations/seminars/conferences.

    As a PhD candidate, I daily use the mathematical and statistical knowledge that I learned during my study. But, I think the most valuable thing that I learned during my study is how to think critically and logically. In my Bachelor’s thesis, I analyzed social, geographical, and lexical influences on Dutch dialect pronunciations. For this, I used ‘generalized additive mixed model’ which is a flexible method that can be used to analyze non-linear relationships.

    When I was a student, I wondered how it would be to work at a company/university and what kind of skills I would need. Now looking backwards, the way I imagined it was very different from how it’s really like. Try to get a real glance of things that you want to do after your study. You can for example talk to the people who are already working in that field.
