Started at 2007/2008. Minimum number of credits for the degree is 120.
The objective of the MSc in Mathematics and Applications is to provide a rigorous scientific training to produce experts capable of approaching high level interdisciplinary research in Applied Mathematics, applying the most recent techniques to solve concrete problems coming from scientific laboratories or industrial companies. The program offers three specialization areas (Profiles): Actuarial Sciences, Statistics and Operation Research; Pure Mathematics; and Financial Mathematics.
The Profile in Actuarial Sciences, Statistics and Operation Research is suitable for those wishing to consolidate these three complementary areas to develop a broad spectrum expertise appropriate to address wide range problems from industry, banks, and insurance companies among others.
The profile in Pure Mathematics is suitable for those wishing to pursue research in pure mathematics (e.g., algebra, analysis, general topology, differential equations, mathematical logic). Pursuing research (to a PhD degree) or enter industry with a deep mathematical training are the main paths after concluding studies in this Profile.
The Profile in Financial Mathematics is suitable for those wishing to develop a strong mathematical background directed to the solution of real finance problems.

The Department of Mathematics is responsible for two undergraduate courses (1st cycle of study) two graduate courses (2nd cycle of study, which award a master’s degree), two postgraduate courses (3rd cycle of study, which award a doctorate degree), a one year post-graduate course and other short courses. The department's academic staff also cooperates in other courses of all qualification levels taught at NOVA School of Science and Technology.
The scientific activity of the majority of the faculty members of the Department of Mathematics is developed at the Center for Mathematics and its Applications (CMA). Its research work covers four major areas: Algebra, Differential equations and Numerical Analysis; Operational Research, Statistics and Risk Management. CMA is integrated into the NOVA School of Science and Technology and is financed by the Foundation for Science and Technology. In addition to the researchers of the Department of Mathematics, this center has the collaboration of many researchers belonging to several Portuguese and foreign universities. In the last evaluation that have been done by the Foundation for Science and Technology, CMA has obtained the classification of Very Good. The other members of this Department develop its scientific activity integrated in other research centers or autonomously.More info
