Description

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

The University of Verona (Italy) offers a two year Masters Programme in Mathematics taught in English.This Master’s Degree, as is the case for all the best programmes, is entirely in English. Many classes will be given by external professors coming from the University partner institutions, among the best ranked in Europe.

More Details

There are two options: the first is to follow the programme in Applications, which is designed to prepare the student for a professional career, based on a providing a strong background in Modelling and Numerical Methods in the fields of Industrial Mathematics, Applied Sciences, Data Science, Decision Science, Financial Mathematics and Cryptography. Alternatively one may follow the Teacher Preparation Programme. Individual programmes may be personalized by taking courses at the University of Trento, with which we have a convention, or by taking part in the international exchange programs Erasmus+, Worldwide Study and Erasmus+ for Traineeship.

This Master’s Degree is a teaching centre for the European Consortium for Mathematics in Industry (ECMI). Indeed, by choosing the appropriate courses it is possible to get the “ECMI Certificate” upon graduation. It is also possible to have an Internship at important national and international Banks and Insurance Companies, as well as in Research laboratories and Schools. These aspects of the Degree give graduates a competitive edge for their future careers, be it in the Job Market, or for a continuing Academic career.

A graduate of the Master’s Degree in Mathematics at the University of Verona will be well prepared for employment in Banks, other Financial Institutions and Insurance Companies, as well as in the Research and Development Offices of companies and other public and private Institutions (data analysis, software development, cryptography and information security, analysis and modelling of biomedical processes, methodologies and technology for Industry 4.0 …) at both the national and international level.

The graduate will be able to successfully continue in a Doctoral Programme in Mathematics (for instance the Doctoral Programme in Mathematics at the University of Trento, in convention with Verona). Alternatively, the graduate may decide to complete their Teacher Training by following the appropriate government licensing procedures.
