The ALGANT - International Integrated Master course in Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory at University of Padova is built on wider Master programs in mathematics and our course allows for the choice of optional courses in other areas of mathematics, physics, computer science, and the history and philosophy of science. Still the main focus is on Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory because:
The students having successfully completed the requirements of the ALGANT program will be well armed to pursue a career in research by preparing a Ph.D. or by directly applying for a job in the many companies that are looking for the know-how we teach. They will be awarded a double degree composed of two nationally recognized degrees issued by the two hosting institutions, completed by a diploma supplement.
The degree obtained is aimed at getting research skills founded on a firm theoretical basis, and the communicative skills necessary to function on the international scene and in teaching. The successful student will be able to apply to high-level Ph.D. programs, but he can also envisage a career as a mathematical researcher outside universities. In particular, an appropriate choice of courses will allow the students to contribute to the applications in fields using technology based on cryptography and coding theory (network security, electronic chips, multimedia and mobile communication industry, etc.). More generally the competencies and learning outcomes acquired with this Master Course are:
