Mathematics is a vibrant, multifaceted and versatile field, which centres on the study and development of techniques to tackle pure and applied mathematical questions. Often, the dividing line between theory and practice is merely an illusion. The abstraction of concrete problems enables us to apply the insight gained from mathematical analysis to other situations as well. This is the strength and the beauty of mathematics – a discipline which is infinite and where new paths are always waiting to be explored.This programme will train you to become an independent, inquiring and problem solving mathematician who can communicate and share insights and methods. Mathematicians are to be found in industry, banking, technology, consultancy, service organizations and many other segments of the labour market. Your training in analysis and your problem-solving skills will give you a head start in a great many work situations.
