The exact content of the degree depends on your specific academic trajectory and is linked to the specialization(s) you opt for. For a more in-depth breakdown of the course structure, click here.
Final course project
During the two years of the IAM program, you acquire broad fundamental knowledge in analysis, stochastics, and discrete mathematics.
Besides the core program, you fill out your own individual program. Generally, students discover quickly where their interests lie: designated core courses inspire them throughout their degrees. On top of this, information about the various disciplines is provided throughout the duration of the program.
The major disciplines within the program are narrowed down to three mathematical areas:
- The field of Computational Science and Engineering focuses on simulating and analyzing complex processes (both physical and technical).
- With Discrete Mathematics and Applications, students explore math in relation to digital applications, specifically regarding optimizing discrete processes for communication and security.
- Statistics, Probability, and Operations Research contains management planning and organizational problems, industrial statistics, and analyzing probabilistic phenomena.
The program takes part in the MasterMath program, a national collaboration involving the math departments of various Dutch universities. This allows our students to follow courses at the joint faculties across the country - a unique opportunity, as every department in the Netherlands has their own distinctive topical specialty. We encourage you to take a look!
