Program description

This Master's programme is closely related to the research carried out in the Institute for Mathematics, Astrophysics and Particle Physics (IMAPP).

This Master's programme is closely related to the research carried out in the Institute for Mathematics, Astrophysics and Particle Physics (IMAPP). Nijmegen mathematicians have established many types of different relationships with other disciplines and research institutes. Under the guidance of a personal tutor, the Master's programme offers you considerable freedom to follow your own interests. Within research groups, students focus on one of the following specializations: Mathematical Physics, Stochastics, or Mathematical foundation of Computer Science. Each student will be allocated to a personal tutor, with whom he or she will decide the research area on which to focus and on the most appropriate specializations and subjects. Our graduates are analysts and problem solvers who make contributions in many fields. Most find work immediately after graduating, either in trade and industry, the financial sector, ICT or management.
