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.
