What is Applied Mathematics?
Applied mathematics involves the utilization of mathematical tools to address real-world scientific challenges while also advancing and perfecting these methodologies. The arsenal of an applied mathematician encompasses a diverse array of techniques, including modeling, analytical methods, approximation methods, computational methods, and others. These multifaceted elements of applied mathematics are seamlessly integrated into research across numerous domains, such as physics, biology, medicine, fluid mechanics, economics, image processing, and information processing. Interestingly, common mathematical structures frequently emerge in problems spanning various fields, illustrating the interconnectedness of subjects like fluid mechanics and game theory.

The course of studies for a master’s degree
During the first semester, students will focus on introductory courses such as perturbation methods, numerical methods, and a research exposure seminar in applied mathematics. A different researcher will provide detailed information about their research during the seminar each week.
During the second semester, students will be focused on locating a supervisor for their thesis. This phase is expected to last until the middle of the semester. After that, a personal study plan will be created for each student in collaboration with their supervisor, based on their chosen field of research and the subject of their thesis. The summer and the second year will be primarily dedicated to research.
