Description

Masters Programme in Mathematics at The University of Verona (Italy)

-The University of Verona (Italy) offers a two year (120 ECTS) Masters Programme (Laurea Magistrale) in Mathematics taught in English, designed according to the standards of ECMI (European Consortium for Mathematics in Industry). It is one of the six Masters taught in English at the University of Verona.

More Details

-The Program has a strong international flavour, with many classes held by international visiting faculty. It offers courses in pure and applied mathematics, with a special attention to financial mathematics and applications of mathematics in other sciences. –The approach is interdisciplinary and involves researchers from physics, computer science, life and health science, economics.
-There is also an exchange program with the Master’s Program in Mathematics of the University of Trento, allowing students to attend courses offered by that university, and there are bilateral agreements with several European universities inside the Erasmus program.
-Students having completed the Master’s program will be able to work in banks and industry, to collaborate with other scientists in interdisciplinary research teams, or to enrol in a PhD program (for instance the Joint PhD Program in Mathematics by the Universities of Trento and Verona).
-There is also the possibility to follow a profile in foundations and teaching of mathematics (partially taught in Italian) that prepares for high school teaching.
-Target students have a Laurea Triennale or an equivalent foreign degree (Bachelor), with a strong basic training in Mathematics.
