A Career in Applied Mathematics
An applied mathematician works with solving problems which lie beyond the realm of regular mathematics, and therefore Applied Mathematics is the programme for you if you want to work with mathematics and still keep in mind how mathematics can be of use in your future career. The Applied Mathematics programme provides a solid base for a career within the private business sector or a research facility, as well as within the field of education.
As an applied mathematician, you can:
- comprehend a complex problem
- produce a credible model of the problem
- analyse and calculate the consequences of the model
- implement the algorithms of the model into a computer programme
With these abilities, you can become a valuable employee in many different workplaces.
