The Mathematics and Computation programme is offered by University of Minho. The University of Minho is a reference regarding high-quality education and learning, not only in a Portuguese context, but also on a European and global scale. As a pioneer in many areas of education, training and research, the University of Minho shows a great capacity to deliver change.


The Master Degree in Mathematics and Computation at University of Minho is a Mathematics 2nd cycle course with emphasis on computational solutions to mathematical problems and the application of those solutions in science and technology, including Computer Science. The main scientific areas of the course are Computational Discrete Mathematics, Numerical Mathematics, and Computer Science, areas which play a central role in the modern technologies. 

Learning outcomes

The applications include, among many others, image processing, computer-aided design / manufacturing (CAD/CAM), secure and reliable communication technology, and formal verification of software. The course gives not only the opportunity to use advanced computational tools like symbolic computational system and libraries of scientific computing, but also the necessary instruction for the analysis and implementation of new algorithms. The course results from collaboration between the Department of Mathematics and Applications and the Department of Informatics of UM.
