Applied Mathematics MSc

Faculty of Natural Sciences (TTK)

The two-year MSc program in Applied Mathematics provides a profound knowledge of applied mathematics, competitive both in the academic and non-academic sectors. Possible specializations are Stochastics and Financial Mathematics. Theoretical courses are taught mainly by internationally recognized scientists of the university, while applied courses are given mainly by experts from industry and finance who are actual appliers of mathematics. Students of our MSc program may enter research projects of the university, or at one of the cooperating companies. Both specializations focus strongly on probability theory and statistics, so having an interest in these fields is essential, and a background in them is advantageous. Foundational courses are provided to those who need them.

Qualification Applied Mathematics MSc program

Language English

Start September and February

The admission procedure consists of an online test and a personal interview, which may be conducted online. The interview focuses on the candidate’s mathematical background, interests and motivation. In particular, general mathematical foundations of the candidate, especially the knowledge of calculus and linear algebra, as well as workmanship in probability and statistics are assessed. Candidates also get points for those BSc courses completed which are relevant for the program.

For our BSc programs general minimum requirements are an eligible highschool degree; document of English language proficiency and successful admission tests, while for our MSc programs an eligible BSc degree is needed. Detailed information on the general admission procedure (deadlines and requirements) can be found on our E-admission page

You can study at BME with a scholarship or as a self-funded student, by paying tuition fees. Various scholarships help you cover tuition fees and your living expenses during your studies. Successful PhD students may receive additional support from research grants.
