## Namibia University of Science and Technology Master of Science in Applied Mathematics

**What is Master of Science in Applied Mathematics? **

The Master of Science degree program in applied mathematics gives you a thorough introduction to application-oriented mathematics. The objectives of the program are: Develop your ability to analyze and solve a variety of real-world problems. Increase your understanding of specific problems encountered in other fields.

**Entry Requirement**

Candidates will be considered for admission into the Master of Science in Applied Mathematics if they have a minimum of Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics Honours from Polytechnic of Namibia/Namibia University of Science and Technology or equivalent qualification in a related discipline from any other recognised institutions. In either case, the candidate should have proven evidence of having conducted supervised research. Evidence of communication proficiency in the English language is required. Candidates may be required to attend a pre-selection interview at the discretion of the Postgraduate Study Committee, to ascertain their competencies for independent research in a specialised area of Applied Mathematics. Registration prior to the approval of a research proposal is provisional and will be made official only when the proposal is approved by the Postgraduate Studies Committee. These procedures will be fully explained to each prospective student during their personal interview.

**Frequently Asked Questions**

**What is the difference between mathematics and applied mathematics?**

Application Based Difference Between Pure Mathematics & Applied Mathematics. Pure mathematics is used to solve problems related to mathematics and applied mathematics is used to answer questions related to various fields like physics, biology, economics, and so on.

**Is applied mathematics a good career?**

The payoff for entering the rigorous field of Applied Mathematics is a set of solid career choices and financial independence. The average salary commanded by an entry-level Data Analyst is above $80,000, with Senior Data Analysts earning, on average, more than $100,000.

**Is Applied Math useful?**

Contrary to the popular belief of bored high school students, math is useful in the real world! Applied Mathematics is the study of mathematical formulas and statistics that are used in everyday life. The broad groundwork of mathematical skills you obtain from this major will be useful for a variety of careers.

**Is applied mathematics degree worth it?**

Applied Math has really great applications and go pretty high in the pay bracket. I would say to look into programming if not double majoring in Computer Science or Software Engineering. Any math in the private sector will at some point lead to programming unless you’re in education and it just expands your prospects.

**What is the meaning of applied mathematics?**

Applied mathematics involves the application of mathematics to problems which arise in various areas, e.g., science, engineering or other diverse areas, and/or the development of new or improved methods to meet the challenges of new problems.

**Which is harder pure or applied mathematics?**

Pure math is much more difficult. Classes in applied math consist of memorizing the steps to solve problems. However, classes in pure math involve proofs, which implies a good understanding of the subject matter is required.

**Is applied maths a science subject?**

For Science (DN200) only, Applied Mathematics, Geography or Computer Science may also be used as a laboratory science subject.

**Which is better core maths or applied mathematics?**

Applied Mathematics is more about practical application of the subject. The idea behind introducing this subject is to make it relevant for those who do not want to study core Mathematics but use it for data interpretation, business, finance, graphical representation and other similar things.

**Are mathematicians in demand?**

Overall employment of mathematicians and statisticians is projected to grow 33 percent from 2020 to 2030, much faster than the average for all occupations. About 5,200 openings for mathematicians and statisticians are projected each year, on average, over the decade.

**Which is better computer science or applied mathematics?**

Computer Science is currently the more employable in the applied sector simply because the jobs to job seekers ratio is better, and applied in maths is more theoretical than applied in Computer Science.

**Can I get into SRCC with Applied Mathematics?**

Ans. Yes, you can get admission in regular course provided you have applied in that course /college and meet the cut-off criterion.

**What kind of math is applied mathematics?**

Applied mathematics is the application of mathematical methods by different fields such as physics, engineering, medicine, biology, finance, business, computer science, and industry. Thus, applied mathematics is a combination of mathematical science and specialized knowledge.

**What is Bachelor of Science in applied mathematics?**

The Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics is a four-year program that provides students with a strong foundation in different mathematical techniques and its application in data analysis, optimization and modeling. The domains of study present in this course are Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, and Analysis.

**Is applied mathematics a Bachelor’s degree?**

Undergraduate Study. Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics (Major) The bachelor of science in applied mathematics provides students with the knowledge necessary to apply mathematical ideas and techniques to the problems that arise in engineering or science.

**Is applied math hard?**

Applied mathematics is as difficult as learning all the rules for stating a particular idea in a particular fashion. It isn’t any harder than looking up a new word and remembering that word’s definition. If you can learn new words and use them in daily conversation, you can learn applied mathematics just as easily.
