Aim of the course
The aim of the course is to train mathematicians who are able to effectively model and solve problems that arise in real-life applications, within engineering, natural sciences, industry and management. The curriculum follows the recommendations of the SIAM, putting emphasis to application-oriented mathematics, practical applications, modelling and communication skills, team work, computer programming and high-performance computing.

Means of evaluation
- Practical mark
- Final examination
Conditions to take the final exam
- Final certificate
- Thesis approved by a reviewer
Admission to the final examination is subject to the obtainment of a final certificate. The final certificate is issued to students having fulfilled all educational requirements specified in the curriculum – except for writing the thesis – and obtained the necessary amount of credits.
Components of the final exam
The final exam comprises the defence of the thesis and oral exams specified in the curriculum (with preparation times at least 30 minutes per subject), which have to be taken the same day.
Result of the final examination
The overall result of the final examination is the average of grades obtained for the thesis and the subjects of the oral part of the final exam: F =(Th + S1+S2+…+Sm)/(1+m).
Conditions to issue the degree
