Overview

Objectives

This Applied Mathematics programme taught at University of Siena is a 2-year graduate programme taught entirely in English, offered to both national and international students.

The program provides courses which complete the basic mathematical competences, covering all the main areas of Mathematics (Mathematical Logic, Algebra, Geometry, Mathematical Analysis, Mathematical Physics, Statistics, Numerical Analysis, Optimizations, Foundations of Mathematics). Then, the student has a choice of courses focused in areas where the support of advanced mathematical methods is fundamental in recent scientific researches and developing technologies.

These courses cover topics such as the theory of formal languages, discrete methods in Mathematics, the applications of data analysis, bioinformatics and information systems for understanding structures in big data systems and networks, the techniques for modeling, analyzing and simulating complex dynamic systems, discrete event systems and nonlinear control systems. The student is trained to the interaction with specialists working in the scientific and technological areas where the support of advanced mathematical tools is required.

The acquired skills include the ability of retriving methodological information from the advanced mathematical literature. Students interested in Education can complete the program with courses focused in the foundational and educational aspects of Mathematics.

Career Opportunities

Graduates in Applied Mathematics can find jobs in public institutions, public and private companies and research centers, which make use of advanced mathematical methods for the modeling and the analysis of data systems and networks.

More specifically, the areas which require the competences of mathematical specialists are those connected with financial data analysis, control and optimization of biological data systems, analysis and control of networks and information systems, image processing and cryptography, modeling of general patterns for artificial intelligence and man-machine integrated systems.

Graduates in Applied Mathematics can access to PhD programs in Mathematics, as well as those in the areas of Economics, Technologies and Natural Science, especially where the PhD programs require a solid background of mathematical competences. Graduates in Applied Mathematics can access graduate courses which enable to a career in educational institutions.
