Students who complete this Degree will have the theoretical foundations and quantitative and computational skills necessary to intervene - creatively and efficiently - in solving problems that may arise in the ongoing digital transformation processes.

Focused on teaching mathematical methods and models for problem solving, the course also includes a systematic approach and adoption of computational techniques that support mathematical resolution methodologies. Given the strong connection between applied mathematics and computational mathematics - as there are many and frequent problems where an exact analytical solution is inaccessible - this study plan is a demanding compromise between these two fields of mathematics, with a strong presence of algorithms and simulation.

Director(s) message

Rosário Laureano

The Degree in Applied Mathematics and Digital Technologies bridges the gap between applied mathematics and computational mathematics. Along with a solid background in mathematics, this Degree has a strong computing and data science component. The connection between these areas is crucial to dealing with several real problems.

The pace of change is now overwhelming. More than 400 years passed between the invention of the printing press by Gutenberg and the transmission of sound by radio waves. But we only had to wait 40 years from the first smartphone to the global network that connects us to almost everything around us. Current changes emerge in a cascade in the most diverse domains of life in society and involve - almost always - the application of mathematics as a fundamental science. A future graduate in Applied Mathematics benefits from its universal language, which allows him not to be limited to a specific sector of intervention.

In this degree we address numerous real scenarios where mathematical modeling is supported by computational techniques. Throughout the degree, students develop applied projects, which allow them to put the knowledge acquired into practice. In the final year of the course they can choose subjects in different areas of application of mathematics to digital transformation, including cybersecurity; virtual and augmented reality; network data; artificial intelligence, among others.

The ability to think critically and communication and teamwork skills complement the profile of those who pass through Iscte-Sintra.
