Applied Mathematics

University of Groningen

Master Postgraduate Groningen

Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study Mathematics, natural sciences and computer science
Course summary Why does one car have more air resistance than another? How can the frequency of the electric power smart grid be kept constant under external disturbances?
Course description Applied Mathematics is concerned with the development and application of mathematical tools for the analysis and design of dynamical systems that appear in modern technology. Mathematical modelling of the problems appearing there plays a basic role, followed by (numerical) analysis, (computer) simulation, and design of controllers to make the systems behave according to the desired specifications. Interaction with other disciplines and with specialists in the fields of application is essential.During your 2-year Master's programme you will be embedded in one of the Applied Mathematics research groups of your choice. Your research project you will be supervised by staff members. The research project can be taken in the form of an internship in the research division of a company as well. The Master's degree programme in Applied Mathematics offers two tracks. Two tracks* Systems and controlThis track is concerned with the analysis, design and optimization of complex dynamical systems. In particular it deals with the mathematical tools behind large scale networks, like electric power networks, water distribution networks, the internet, platoons of cars, formations of robots, and netwo

Admission

Admission requirements
  1. The Admissions Office will advise the Admissions Board on your application, after which the Board will decide if you meet the admission requirements in terms of general level of previous education and specific background knowledge. Applications are evaluated on a continuous basis. You do not have to wait until the application deadline to apply. Make sure to visit 'MSc Application Procedure' at: http://www.rug.nl/fse/programme/admissions/msc/ for all the necessary information about the procedure and admission requirements.
  2. Make sure to visit 'Language Requirements' for all the necessary information about required language tests. http://www.rug.nl/fse/programme/admissions/msc/language-requirements
  3. At least a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics or Applied/Engineering mathematics with courses in the field of control theory and/or fluid dynamics. This is merely an indication of required background knowledge. The Admissions Board determines whether the specific contents of your previous degree programme meet the admission requirements.

In short, the following rules apply:

  • The “EU/EEA rate” is the regular fee for students from within the EU/EEA.
  • The “non-EU/EEA rate” is the rate for students from outside the EU/EEA.
  • The “institutional rate” is for all students who have already obtained a bachelor’s or master’s degree and who want to start a second programme leading to a degree at the same level or at a lower level.
  • Note that FT, PT and D stand for "full-time", "part-time" and "dual", respectively.

Make sure you contact your institution to find out what rate applies to you. The rates listed here are estimates.
