Students use tools & models from applied mathematics to examine decision making & the concept of optimisation. English-language, 2-year programme focuses on mathematical and computing skills.

The master's programme in Operations Research covers a wide range of topics in applied and theoretical areas. Emphasis is on the following topics:

  • production planning, scheduling and supply chain optimisation
  • modelling and decision making under randomness, for instance in queuing theory and simulation
  • signal and image processing with emphasis on wavelet analysis and applications in the biomedical domain
  • systems biology: mathematical modelling of biological systems, gene and protein interaction networks, and phylogenetic trees
  • estimation and identification of mathematical models, and fitting models to data
  • dynamic game theory, non-cooperative games and strategic decision making with applications in evolutionary game theory and biology
  • feedback control design and optimal control, for stabilization and for tracking a desired behaviour
  • symbolic computation and exact numerical computation, with attention to speed, efficiency and memory usage
  • optimisation of continuous functions and of problems of a combinatorial nature

toelatingseisen

taaltoets
Bewijs van Engelse taalvaardigheid door middel van een IELTS test of TOEFL. Behalve als de moedertaal van de student Engels is of als de student het middelbare onderwijs in een EU/EEA land heeft gevolgd.

math test
The Board of Admission can additionally request as proof of analytical writing and quantitative reasoning abilities, a satisfactory Graduate Record Examination (GRE) score. A satisfactory GRE score implies a score of 4 or higher on the analytical writing section and 80% in the quantitative reasoning section (a lower score will be decided on by the Board of Admission).

Solmaz Karami
werkzaam als Business Intelligence Specialist bij Vodafone
“I moved to the Netherlands after completing a Software Engineering bachelor's programme in Iran. The main reason I choose Maastricht University was of the Problem Based Learning system (PBL). I have never liked learning solely theoretically, without applying my newly acquired knowledge into practice.

As I had a mathematical and computer science background, I found Knowledge Engineering the best match for me...
I choose the master's programme in Operations Research. In the second year of my study I worked at Philips Netherlands in Eindhoven. The first months I spent at the Marketing department working on an online sentiment calculator and the continuing months at the research and development department. Here I worked with sensor data to automate human activities recognition. The internship at Philips went smoothly thanks to the great support I constantly got from my university supervisor.
I never regretted my study choice as I already had two jobs lined up for me even before my graduation. Now I have been working as a business intelligence specialist at Vodafone for three years already, time flies”
