Master of Science (MSc)

Mathematical models, advanced simulations and computer calculations are increasingly used in the development of new technologies. This Master's program offers you an excellent place to learn the means and methods needed to start contributing to society's technological needs.

Master Industrial and Applied Mathematics

On this program you will gain knowledge that prepares you to become an expert in tackling and solving problems in technology and industry from a mathematical perspective. It is also possible to obtain the Education Master's in Science Education and Communication at the Eindhoven School of Education (ESoE) simultaneously with this master's program, which qualifies you to teach mathematics at pre-university level.


The Master's program in Industrial and Applied Mathematics covers 4 specializations: 

  • Computational Science and Engineering: focusing on the simulation and analysis of complex physical and technical processes 
  • Discrete Mathematics and Applications: relating to the mathematics that lies behind our digital world and the optimization of discrete processes 
  • Statistics, Probability, and Operations Research: managerial scheduling and organizational problems, industrial statistics and the analysis of phenomena in which randomness plays a role 
  • Data Science in Engineering: the core courses span a wide range of computer science and statistics courses and include base competences such as: process mining, data mining, algorithms, visualization, real-life data challenges, statistics for big data, statistical learning theory, and probability and stochastic processes

NVAO Accreditation

The independent judgment by the NVAO strengthens higher education institutions in their quality culture. On the basis of the judgments of NVAO higher education programmes are recognized and students receive a legally recognized degree. In the Netherlands, NVAO assesses the internal quality assurance pursued by universities and the quality of the programmes they provide.
