M.Sc. Mathematics

The Mathematics programme at the University of Trento provides students with advanced knowledge and understanding of the main theoretical and applied concepts in a range of four taught modules: Advanced Mathematics, Teaching and Scientific Communication, Mathematics for Life Sciences, Coding Theory and Cryptography.

The Department of Mathematics at the University of Trento aims at training professional mathematicians to pursue the study of scientific and technological problems by mathematical methods, and at undertaking 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).
