Master’s Degree in Mathematics, Statistics and Applications

The cycle of studies oriented towards obtaining a Masters Degree in Mathematics, Statistics and Applications has the duration of 4 semesters (2 academic years). Those who obtain 120 ECTS in this cycle are awarded the title.
This masters aims to provide scientific training in different domains of Mathematics and Statistics, qualifying students to find a public or a private employment that values the acquired knowledge and skills (particularly in sectors with high scientific and technological incidence) or to deepen the knowledge in Mathematics or Statistics enrolling in a PhD programm.
A continuous update of knowledge/learning and a sustainable evolution are common characteristics of mathematicians and extremely valued by employing entities. Therefore, the course has been conceived in such a way that its graduates receive the necessary tools to overcome challenges and to think outside of the box. They will have the seeds to produce innovating ideas, for example, deducing theoretical aspects from natural phenomena.
The Masters in Mathematics, Statistics and Applications was recognized by the order of 08-08-2012 of the Secretary of State for Education and School Administration. It is aimed at those who intend to further their teaching career in basic education (recruitment group – 500), 3rd cycle and secondary education as foreseen in the terms of article 54 of the Teaching Career Statute.
