The degree course aims at providing graduates with solid groundings in the various sectors of mathematics, with respect not only to the technical aspects of the discipline, but also to the cultural ones, and with familiarity with the scientific method.
The educational programme, while based on a large part common to all students , allows them to choose curricula providing good preparation for further study in 2nd cycle degrees in Mathematics or in other disciplines as well as for their entrance into the labour market. The curriculum is characterized by the training in fundamental mathematics as well as with a good grounding in Physics and Computer Science.
The course duration is three years and each year is divided into semesters. The first and second year provide the basic knowledge of Algebra, Geometry, Mathematical Analysis, Mathematical Physics, Foundations of Mathematics , Physics and Informatics as well. The third year is devoted to the completion of knowledge in the various fields of mathematics through a wide range of class-specific, related and integrative educational credits, aiming at providing competencies both in theoretical and in strategic areas for the applications of mathematics, such as computer science, physics, biology, chemistry, economics and engineering. The course is completed by an introduction to Probability Theory and Numerical Analysis. Elective activities and final examination take place during the third year.
