Leerdoelen  The objective of this internship is to let students work on a project provided by a company/institute (not by a university), i.e. to work on real life problems in a multidisciplinary team. This objective has led to the following learning objectives: The student  is able to go through the design cycle: o is able to make a mathematical model for a problem from actual practice taking into account the wishes of the client and problem boundaries o is able to decide upon relevant mathematical tools (theories/methods/techniques) for simulating/solving the mathematical model at hand and use these tools o interpret the mathematical results in the light of the original problem and adjust, if necessary, the mathematical model.  is able to function in a multidisciplinary team  is able to express him or herself well both orally and in writing to both experts and nonexperts  is familiar with the social and ethical aspects of applying mathematics in practice  has experience with working in cooperation with the professional field 

Omschrijving  The student should contact one of the staff members involved in the master’s degree programme in Applied Mathematics at least three months before the actual start of the internship (and even earlier in case the student has to arrange housing). In consultation with this staff member the student chooses an internship (i.e. a company/institute and subject). The student can either choose to perform the internship at a company/institute with which the staff member has already contact, or arrange the internship him/herself at a company/institute of his/her own choice. The staff member has the final say in whether the company/institute and the topic and level of the project is suitable for the programme. For more information see here on the Student Portal
