About this program
Master of Mathematical Engineering
The Master of Mathematical Engineering reveals the hidden technology behind nearly all aspects of modern life. Applications which otherwise have little in common, from financial products to medical scanners to wind farms, all process large amounts of data or are based on complex models. Mathematics is of critical importance to the future of these industries amid higher demands from customers and the environment.
Just how does an auto-pilot work? How do you determine the value of financial products such as options? How can one find abnormalities in brain images caused by epileptic seizures? Mathematical techniques have proven crucial for the efficient treatment of the underpinning data that answers these questions, providing fast and accurate simulation and optimisation. The Master in Mathematical Engineering will equip you to with the fundamental expertise necessary to handle, optimise and control data for the application of solutions to contemporary problems.
The emphasis is not on abstract mathematical theory, but on the application, the design, analysis, implementation and use of mathematical models and algorithms in order to solve mathematical problems from industry.

Credits: 120 ECTS
Many small dynamic young companies are active in the field of mathematical engineering. But even big players in materials, chemistry, automotive, aerospace, biomedical industries, as well as finance, are increasingly interested in mathematical engineering thanks to the ever-increasing complexity of mathematical models and more stringent environmental standards and comfort expectations. Many of our young graduates start their careers in the R&D departments of high-tech companies or matriculate into one of the university’s PhD program.

Why study at KU Leuven
A Highly Ranked University
According to international rankings, KU Leuven is among the best 100 universities in the world. Moreover, KU Leuven was ranked as most innovative university of Europe by Reuters four years in a row (2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019). All of KU Leuven’s disciplines proudly belong to the top 100 of their field. Scholars and researchers, teachers and visionaries, thinkers and makers all have their place in KU Leuven’s fertile intellectual habitat.
Most Innovative University in Europe
KU Leuven has been identified as Europe’s most innovative university for four years in a row by Reuters. By developing the most important drug against HIV, a new type of solar panel that converts oxygen into hydrogen and uncovering the secrets of Sagalassos, KU Leuven researchers have a profound impact on our everyday lives in nearly all fields of research. That innovative character is deeply embedded in the way we teach our students, by integrating relevant guest lectures, taking an Interdisciplinary approach and opening the most advanced research and education facilities.
A Comprehensive University
As a comprehensive university, KU Leuven offers a wide range of disciplines organized by 15 faculties. Each of these disciplines is ranked in the top 100 of its field according to the THE World University Rankings by subject. Half of the university’s faculties are even in the top 50 within their fields of study.
