Course Objectives

The courses included in the master degree programme in Mathematics share the common objective of providing students with the advanced knowledge and training required to pursue a career in teaching. Students can attend courses on cutting-edge subject matter in at least one sector of research, and receive the necessary training to enable them to assimilate future scientific advances in the field.

The general curriculum is designed to provide in-depth knowledge in at least one sector of Mathematics, through teaching characterised by a particularly high degree of logical rigour and abstraction.

The applied curriculum aims to offer in-depth knowledge of at least one sector of Mathematics: the teaching is geared first and foremost at training students in the use of the mathematical techniques used in modelling, mathematical study, the numerical simulation of natural, biomedical, social and economic phenomena, and technological issues.

The industrial curriculum (annexed to the international ECMI collaboration agreements) is designed to provide in-depth knowledge of at least one sector of Mathematics: the teaching is primarily interdisciplinary in nature and focuses on modelling, simulation, the optimisation of industrial, social, economic, technological and biomedical problems, and the development of teamwork and communication skills.

Career and Employment

The master degree programme in Mathematics prepares graduates for employment in public or private facilities which require aptitudes in abstract reasoning, the formalisation and/or modelling of concrete problems and their solution through the use of the multiple mathematical tools available.

The autonomous critical thinking and communication skills required for completion of the programme enable Mathematics graduates to work with a high degree of autonomy and to quickly and competently integrate themselves into working environments, taking on professional roles in various fields.

In particular, graduates can work in: banks, insurance companies, survey institutes, consultancy firms, certification companies, design and software development companies, centres and companies that operate in the medical, biomedical and pharmacological fields, ecology, the research and development sections of large enterprises, transport, telecommunications and aerospace and, more generally, in the high-technology industry.

Graduates can also work in the field of the diffusion of scientific knowledge or pursue careers in research or teaching (upon completion of the relevant teacher training programmes and any competitions set out by current regulations).
