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.
Applied mathematics is not a particular branch of mathematics, but rather a way of working with mathematics. In the Applied mathematics programme, you will learn to create models of and solve problems from the practical world by utilising advanced mathematical tools.
The Applied mathematics programme gives you the opportunity to solve complex problems and to create new insight and recognition. Applied mathematics is for you if you want to learn to utilise advanced mathematical tools and computers to model, analyse and solve complex problems in the business sector or in research. An applied mathematician masters and is able to further develop the mathematical tools which have contributed to the development of the modern society of information.
