Course description

Studying for a math degree means becoming acquainted with abstract concepts that challenge and sharpen logical capabilities to the highest degree. Because of this, mathematics graduates are successful in the most diverse fields. They can analyse problems, construct models, find connections among different concepts and imagine new, surprising solutions.
More and more, the capabilities of a mathematics graduate are sought for by R&D companies, but also by management, finance, banking and insurance firms looking for individuals capable of framing problems theoretically and analysing large amounts of data.

Studying mathematics strengthen abstraction and imagination, which allow the future graduate to develop flexible work capabilities and enable him/her to easily adapt to an ever changing work environment.
This approach is implemented starting from the very earliest years of the program. In our classes you will be taught to develop a critical approach to the material, requiring autonomy and creativity.

There won’t be large books to learn by heart – rather, there will be concepts to understand, think about deeply, and be able to apply autonomously.
In the end, you will learn to discuss problems, ideas and solutions in a precise and rigorous way and to communicate, both in Italian and in English, with experts in your and other disciplines.

Lessons are held in English.

What you need to know

Students in possession of a Laurea triennale in Scienze matematiche (L-35) can enroll in the program, but also students with an Italian degree in other disciplines or a foreign equivalent degree.
By applying, prospective students must show to possess the necessary competence to fruitfully pursue the project.

Curricular requirements are (at least):

  • 48 credits in mathematics
  • 9 in physics
