Why choose this programme option?
Are you interested in mathematical methods and algorithms, where they come from, how they can be programmed and how they can be used? In this programme option, this is the main focus, often combined with applications of the algorithms.
Real world applications may involve huge datasets, where the objective can be to extract useful information, such as risk in a complex project or portfolio, an oil reservoir in seismic data or a tumor in a medical image. Other applications may require the development of suitable representations of sound, geometry or image data, or simulating some physical phenomenon.
