The Department of Mathematics at the University of Trento aims to train professional mathematicians to pursue the study of scientific and technological problems by mathematical methods and to undertake research in various branches of the subject.

The Department covers all main fields of Modern Mathematics, from Algebra to Geometry, Analysis, Probability and Statistics, Mathematical Physics, and Numerical Analysis, and has earned an outstanding reputation for excellence in the application of fields such as Biomedicine (for example, modeling of the cardiovascular system), Biomathematics (for example, vaccination strategies against pandemics), and Data Security (for example, error-correcting codes used in critical applications such as in train signaling).

The Master’s degree program in Mathematics provides students with advanced knowledge and understanding of the main theoretical and applied concepts through four taught modules: Advanced Mathematics, Teaching and Scientific Communication, Mathematics for Life Sciences, Coding Theory, and Cryptography.

Program Overview

The Master's Degree in Mathematics aims to form scientists and professionals having a deep knowledge of the theoretical principles that are the base of mathematical sciences. In addition, the program offers a variety of study plans regarding various applications of mathematics. The course is divided into four curricula:

  • Advanced Mathematics is generally for students who want to continue their studies at the doctorate level, as it includes a large spectrum of areas of Mathematics. It proposes 3 tracks:
    • General Advanced Mathematics;
    • Advanced Algebra and Geometry;
    • Calculus of Variations, Partial Differential Equations, and Dynamical Systems.
  • The curriculum on Teaching and Scientific Communication prepares students, on one hand, for school teaching and, on the other, to work in the field of Scientific dissemination which is becoming increasingly important due to science museums and shows.
  • Mathematics and Statistics for Life and Social Sciences offers 4 tracks:
    • Mathematics for Data Science is especially geared towards students who wish to work in the Data Analysis departments;
    • Modeling, Statistics, and Analysis of Biosystems studies the models used to investigate various complex biological systems. Among others, models of epidemic spread are studied;
    • Modeling and Simulation for Biomedical Applications yields competencies in mathematics, numerical computation, physics, and physiology, applicable to a range of disciplines in medicine, the pharmaceutical industry, sanitary services;
    • Modeling, Statistics, and Analysis in Mathematical Finance aims to prepare students with modern education in probabilistic, statistical, and computational methods.
  • Cryptography introduces the theoretical and practical aspects of modern cryptography and Error Correction Codes. It shows how important methods adopted in mobile phones, smart cards, browsers, or decoders are constructed starting from very refined algebraic and geometric theoretical instruments. It proposes two particular study plans: stage-oriented and research-oriented.
