Applied Mathematics is very important in our modern society. Every day you use products that would not exist without mathematical creativity and efforts. Examples are your cell phone, the security of your cash card, the supply of products in shops and the development of a digital prototype for a car
Our society has a permanent need for widely deployable mathematicians who think it\'s a challenge to solve problems and to design and manufacture new products. That\'s what you learn at TU/e.
What is Applied Mathematics?
Applied Mathematics is the mathematics you require and develop to contribute to many aspects of society. Mathematics plays a major role in image processing in the medical world, for example, when planning flows of goods through wholesale businesses, for market research, but also for your cellphone and your debit card.
With Applied Mathematics you can resolve all kinds of practical problems that may not appear mathematical. During the study program you will learn to use mathematical models that clearly picture the mathematical core of a practical problem.
Applied Mathematics Program Outline
The practicals are done in small groups, you receive intensive supervision and an adequate preparation for engineering work practice. The mathematics you learn at TU/e is aimed at applications in industry and at (government) institutions. You learn how to apply mathematics during instructions and practicals, in which you work on practical cases together with other students. You gain the knowledge required for that during lectures. Mathematical modeling takes up a central position in the Design-Based Learning Assignments (DBL) in the modeling practicals. And you will be tackling the mathematical aspects of practical problems with mathematical methods and (computer) simulations.
