Étudier les Maths à Mons
“We all use math every day; to predict weather, to tell time, to handle money. Math is more than formulas or equations; it's logic, it's rationality, it's using your mind to solve the biggest mysteries we know.”
Charles “Charlie” Eppes — TV show “Numb3rs”
The quotation above, from the TV series Numb3rs, is much closer to reality than we can imagine. Indeed, few of our graduates teach. What are the others doing? They are involved in data processing for insurance companies, in the development of computer networks, in landing and takeoff systems for aircrafts,... all these activities rely on mathematics! In order to offer a range of opportunities in line with the real world, the Department provides excellent training in mathematics, computer science and mathematics for finance.
