Master of Science Industrial and Applied Mathematics

Irene Man

"I'm working on data-driven maintenance of MRI scanners. These machines generate a lot of data, and statistical methods and models can help us find information to detect equipment failure before it arises. Modeling the problem is very interesting - you need imagination and abstract thinking to go from the very detailed information you get from experts to a model that captures the essence of the processes. I chose Industrial and Applied Mathematics because I like solving problems and puzzles. What I most enjoy about studying at TU/e is the interactive environment ā€“ talking with other students about the things we learn is very important. Mathematics is very broad, and mathematical knowledge is essential in many areas of business. I would like to work in the medical field ā€“ working with mathematics to solve problems that also help people in the real world.ā€
