Electrical and computer engineering student wanting to do mathematics masters.

    • Thread Starter


    so I am an electrical and computer engineering student.

    I want to do a masters in mathematics (discrete, applied but preferred pure!) in the UK, Netherlands or other countries.

    I know that usually universities require a maths or physics degree to be admitted for a master.

    Is it possible that some universities could accept me with the precondition of having to do some remedial coursework?

    I study in Germany and these are the courses with mathematics:

    1. Maths one and two, 20 ECTS credits.

    2. Signals and systems 1 and 2: 12 ECTS credits.

    3. Data structures und algorithms; 6 ECTS.

    4.Databases: 6 ECTS.

    5. Signals processing. 6 ECTS.

    Number 1 is pure mathematics, the rest have the highest amount of applied math, is this a satisfactory background to:

    1. Get admitted with remedial coursework to a pure mathematics degree?

    2. if not one, then get admitted to a "discrete mathematics" or "applied math" master?

    finally, are there any programmes you could recommend?

    thanks in advance.

    Have you done any research around this yourself? That's the best way to find out if your profile matches what unis are looking for. If in doubt email the uni and ask.
Do you have exam superstitions?
