Diverse mathematical applications to support advancements in business and engineering are at the heart of the Master’s degree program in “Industrial Mathematics”. The Master’s degree program trains you in applied mathematics, honing skills on how to develop and use mathematical methods to solve technical problems in industry and engineering. The program focuses on mathematical modeling and numerical simulation, including topics such as partial differential equations, inverse problems, and financial mathematics.
- Internationally focused, interdisciplinary degree program
- Opportunities to customize electives according to your interests
- Wide range of business or industry-related Master’s thesis topics
Master's Degree in
Program Objectives, Job Opportunities, Career Prospects
Students in one of the JKU’s three Master’s degree programs in Mathematics hone unique skills and learn to specialize, prioritize, and broaden their expertise in a variety of fields. The program features a wide selection of classes - some held in English – allowing you to tailor the program to your personal interests and career aspirations. Projects conducted together with industrial partners and companies, often in conjunction with the Master's thesis, give students exciting insight into future career prospects.
Graduates of the JKU’s Master’s degree programs in Mathematics are highly qualified to:
- Be an active part of a team and communicate effectively with experts in advanced fields of application
- Independently conduct scientific mathematical analyses (such as base-knowledge research, developing methodologies, or mathematical applications)
- Pursue advanced independent studies in a specialized field
Graduates in Mathematics can pursue a variety of professions, particularly in fields requiring you to develop and apply new mathematical methods and computer software based on the most recent academic and scientific findings. Graduates of the program are highly qualified to work at:
- R&D facilities in industry, business, and the public sector
- Companies requiring processes in mathematical modeling
- Financial service companies, such as banks and insurance companies
- Companies in the area of software development and information technology
- Universities, other post-secondary educational institutions, and external research facilities
