Guide to Choosing a Master’s Program 2016

According the Guide to choosing a master's program 2016 the master Industrial and Applied Mathematics is the best applied mathematics master program of the Netherlands!

For five years TU/e was the best university of technology, in 2016 TU/e is the second best university of technology.

The figures for the survey of Master’s programs are 70 percent based on the ratings by students and 30 percent on those by the NVAO (Accreditation Organization for the Netherlands and Flanders).

The program

This degree program focuses on mathematical models, advanced simulations and computer calculations. These means and methods are increasingly finding use in new technological developments and this Master's program therefore offers an excellent start to your contribution to society's technological needs, both now and in the future. 

Content of the Master's degree program in Industrial and Applied Mathematics

The Master's program in Industrial and Applied Mathematics covers 3 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)

For full details on the program, please read the education guide. 

Teacher in pre-university education

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. With the education Master's under your belt, you are qualified to teach mathematics in pre-university education.

NVAO accreditation
