MSc program


An average of at least 87 in the first degree, which includes the required courses in the undergraduate program in applied mathematics at the Technion, or equivalent courses. A student who is required to complete such courses will usually be accepted as a student on a “completion track”.

Study requirements

The curriculum includes a number of basic courses and additional courses (listed below) depending on the thesis subject.

A student holding a three-year bachelor’s must complete 34 study points.
A student holding a four-year bachelor’s must complete 18 study points.

The curriculum of each graduate student is determined by the adviser and the Graduate Studies Committee.

All students are required to find an adviser and submit a research proposal within six months from the beginning of their studies.

At the research project track, instead of a thesis,  students must take additional eight study points.

The courses must be taken during the master’s degree:

  1. 198014 – Selected topics in Applied Mathematics 5
  2. 198002 – Asymptotic methods 2
  3. 106416 – Numerical analysis of partial differential equations
  4. 196001- Seminar in Applied Mathematics
  5. One course in the field of probability and statistics:
  • 106349 – Advanced probability
  • 096310 – Random processes
  • 046201 – Introduction to random signal work
  • 096425 – Time series and forecasting


PhD program

Doctoral students are assigned a study program consisting of at least 10 credit points and are required a final research thesis.
