Master Specialisation - Discrete Mathematics and Optimization

Discrete Mathematics and Optimization

Discrete Mathematics and Optimization provides the mathematical tools required for the analysis and solution of problems that are of a combinatorial nature. Such problems often have origins in (pure) mathematics, adjacent areas like computer science and quantum physics, or practical applications such as logistics.    
The specialisation has a strong theoretical component, but also offers the opportunity to look into real-life applications in the field of (healthcare) logistics, machine learning, energy etc.
