Career Options and Job Opportunities
The Mathematics program trains high-level mathematicians to work in research, industry, and education. Graduates work in R&D, finances in a wide range of companies in the computer and high-tech industries as well as in universities, research institutes and schools. Due to ongoing research in advanced technology industries, the demand for mathematicians, whose training allows them to incorporate their knowledge in a broad range of areas, is increasing.
The Faculty of Mathematics has three separate application tracks: Mathematics, Mathematics with Computer Science, and Mathematics with Statistics and Operational Research. In addition, there is also an application track that is joint with the Faculty of Computer Science(the Computer Science and Mathematics track), and an application track that is joint with the faculty of Physics(the Mathematics - Physics track).
The "Mathematics" track
This is the Faculty track, which trains tomorrow's mathematicians. Students who apply to this track, will choose one of the following study tracks:
- Three-year "Bachelor of Science in Mathematics" grogram
- Three-year "Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics" program
- Four-year "Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics" program
The three-year grogram in Mathematics and the four-year grogram in Applied Mathematics allows students who wish to do so, to combine their studies with specialized courses in one of the following areas: Physics, Statistics, Operations Research, Economucs, Computer Science, Control Theory and Math Education. The choice of the particular study track can be made as iate as the fourth semester, so thet students have an opportunity to see which direction they like best.
Three-year "Bachelor of Science in Mathematics" (BSc)
The program allows students who wish to do so, to combine their mathematics study program with specialized courses in one of the following areas: Physics, Statistics, Operations Research, Economics, Computer Science, Control Theory and Teaching of Mathematics.
(The combination with Computer Science is only open to students with relatively high grades after two semesters of study.)
Four-year "Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics" (BSc) program
This program also allows students who wish to do so, to specialize in one of the following areas: Computer Science, Physics, Continuum Mechanics, Numerical Analysis, Statistics, Operations Research, Economics and Control.
Students may defer making their selection between Mathematics and Applied Mathematics up to their fourth semester, in order to formulate their future plans. All the above programs enable students to pursue higher degrees.
