More information 


The master program aims at providing high-level competences for the formalization and the consequent mathematical analysis of problems arising from applied sciences and technologies, with a special focus on the analysis of big data systems and complex systems.

This 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.
