Applied Mathematics MSc


About the Programme

 

This four-semester MSc degree programme offered by the Bolyai Institute of the University of Szeged provides a modern introduction into various areas of Applied Mathematics. The programme is open to students who hold a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics (or a close equivalent) from an accredited university.

 

In the first semester all students are required to complete introductory courses that lay the common mathematical foundations. Starting from the second semester students must choose one of the following three specializations: Applied Analysis, Industrial Mathematics, and Financial Mathematics. Applied Analysis is aimed at applications of analysis in problems that arise in natural sciences and industry. Industrial Mathematics is intended to provide the necessary tools for solving practical mathematical problems of engineering. Industrial Mathematics is more oriented towards industrial applications, while Applied Analysis yields a deeper theoretical background. The Financial Mathematics Specialization is designed to give the necessary mathematical knowledge to work in the areas of insurance, investments, and banking. In the last two semesters of the programme, students are required to write a Master’s thesis under the supervision of a faculty member, and at the end of the programme they must successfully pass an oral Final Examination held before a committee.

 

Graduates of the Applied Mathematics Master’s programme are much sought after in the labour market, and they have an opportunity to pursue a scientific career by entering a doctoral programme in Mathematics.

SZTE Experience


amin-alawar2Amin Alawar - Faculty of Science and Informatics - Biology (PhD)

Being awarded the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship, I came from Lebanon to Szeged. Student life here is astonishing; I simply adore being a student at SZTE. A variety of foreign scholars, and young people have arrived here from all corners of the world. After having finished with academic work at the lab, there is still time for relaxing. The town itself is also impressive – my favourite place is Széchenyi tér.

I’m from Ecuador and a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holder in my second year. I chose University of Szeged because of its highly ranked status in Hungary. I like the generosity of the people and the fantastic university facilities. The student environment is very relaxing, and you learn a lot from the cultural diversity. The student mentors are helpful. Professors and members of faculty staff are very approachable to guide and support you with academic challenges. Life in Szeged is exciting, and my favorite spot is the bank of Tisza River. The landscape of the bridge across the river and the beachside perspective is a beauty. I do enjoy the good academic system, and friendly environment.
