Mathematics

Programma-opties

  • Mathematics and Complex Dynamical Systems (specialisatie)

    Do you want to deepen your knowledge in pure mathematics?

    And, are you interested in the science of complexity and how a dynamical systems point of view gives the tools to understand complex phenomena? In this specialization you will learn how to model and qualitatively analyse the dynamics of complex systems; how to describe the geometry of high-dimensional spaces and study their properties; and how advanced mathematics applies in the study of problems in physics, chemistry, and biology.

    More information about the research questions that motivate the topics in this specialization can be found at the webpages of the following research groups:

    • Algebra
    • Dynamical Systems, Geometry and Mathematical Physics
  • Statistics and Big Data (specialisatie)

    Are you fascinated by probabilities? And do you want to apply this fascination to prediction problems, to network modelling and other modern data science problems?

    In this specialization you will study the fundamentals of statistical inference, such as asymptotic statistics, but also the contemporary developments in the field on the boundary of statistics and data science, with an eye on applications, such as sociology and biology. You will also learn how to deal with practical problems, team work other transferable skills in a statistical consulting course.

  • Science, Business & Policy (profiel)

    Interested in the business side of science? You can combine this Master's programme with the Science Business & Policy profile. The SBP profile includes a six-month internship as a scientific advisor.

  • HTSM Honours Master (honoursprogramma)

    This Master's degree programme gives access to the additional, highly selective, High Tech Systems and Materials (HTSM) Honours Master.

    The HTSM Honours Master is organized in cooperation with Philips and other major industry partners.

    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!’
