What's the Master of Mathematical Engineering all about? 

The Master of Science in Mathematical Engineering is unique in Flanders and is supported by high quality research that has led to several spin-off companies.

The ever increasing computer capacity for treatment of data, storage of measurements and data, and computing models, offers solutions to important challenges in business and society. Often mathematical techniques are crucial. A few examples:

  • How does an auto-pilot work?
  • How do you trace credit card fraud?
  • How do you find out which genes play an important role in cancer?
  • How do you simulate the evolution of greenhouses gases in the atmosphere?
  • How do you determine the value of financial products such as options?
  • How do you compress the images of fingerprints?
  • How do you compute airplane noise?
  • How do you optimise the process in a chemical reactor?
  • How do you analyse customer data and model consumer profiles?
  • How do you find abnormalities in brain images caused by epileptic seizures?

At first sight, these applications have little in common. However, for each of those, large amounts of data and various models are available. Mathematical techniques are crucial for the efficient treatment of these data and for fast and accurate simulation and optimisation.

Structure 

The programme consists of a technical core education on advanced topics on mathematics, process control, system identification, numerical optimisation, numerical simulation of differential equations, scientific software, and a project where students solve a problem that requires a combination of knowledge and skills taught at the core education.

The students freely choose among the many elective courses. They are stimulated to select courses from different tracks in order to obtain a broad overview of techniques and applications of mathematics in engineering science.

The elective courses include technical courses on mathematical techniques, as well as courses that are taught in other Master’s programmes that focus on modelling and the use of these mathematical techniques.

International

The Erasmus+ programme gives you the opportunity to gain valuable international experience by completing (usually) one semester at a participating European university. Student exchange agreements are also in place with a number of Japanese and American universitiesThis arrangement does not lengthen the duration of your degree programme, nor does it result in a separate degree.

It is also possible to complete an internship at a company abroad. Ask the internship coordinator for more information.

These studying abroad opportunities and internships are complemented by the short courses offered via the Board of European Students of Technology (BEST) network. The Faculty of Engineering Science is also member of the international networks CESAER, CLUSTER and T.I.M.E.

You can find more information on this topic on the website of the Faculty.

Strengths

The programme is generally perceived positively by alumni.

There are many elective courses, which gives freedom to develop an individual study programme tuned to the student’s interest. This fact is often mentioned by students and alumni as one of the strong points of the programme.

Since September 2014, the EC (Educational Committee) can rely on the expertise of the Industrial Advisory Board.

The programme is organised by the departments of computer science and electrical engineering. The students can use the computer infrastructure of both departments. The students become familiar with different fields of research which broadens their view.

This is an initial Master's programme and can be followed on a full-time or part-time basis.

Career perspectives

Many small, dynamic, young companies are active in the field of mathematical engineering. But even big players in materials, chemistry, automotive, aerospace, biomedical industries, as well as finance, are increasingly interested in mathematical engineering thanks to the ever increasing complexity of mathematical models and more stringent environmental standards and comfort expectations. Many of our young graduates start their careers in the R&D departments of high-tech companies or matriculate into one of the university’s PhD programmes.
