The Master in Mathematics has as its main objective to provide a solid formation in the fundamental areas of Mathematics and in the field of its applications. Students who have this mathematical background will be able to face complex challenges and will be prepared to solve problems that require abstraction and operative/quantitative activities. They will also have the opportunity to start in scientific research, deepening their knowledge on a specific topic in Mathematics, under the guidance of teachers from the Department of Mathematics and/or researchers from the Center for Research in Mathematics and Applications. In addition, this Master also allows the acquisition of the scientific training necessary to access the Doctoral Program in Mathematics or doctorates in different scientific areas of Science, Engineering and Technology.
