The Graduate Program in Pure and Applied Mathematics of the Institute of Science and Technology of the Federal University of São Paulo (Unifesp) originated in 2015. Its faculty has been gradually constituted since the implementation of Unifesp in São José dos Campos in 2007 – a result of the expansion of federal universities at the time.
The Graduate Program in Pure and Applied Mathematics develops research in the following lines, concentrated in both Pure and Applied Mathematics:
- Geometry and Dynamics
- Methods in Applied Mathematics
- Discrete Mathematics
The Graduate Program in Pure and Applied Mathematics is guided by the following objectives:
- To develop excellent research in Mathematics and Applied Mathematics;
- To train professionals that are committed to advancing the mathematical knowledge for activity in education and research, addressing the demand on the national higher education system;
- To expose the students to a broad range of mathematical fields, providing sufficient mathematical culture for them to apply their knowledge in research involving the development and usage of Mathematics in theoretical and practical problems.
The students graduating in Masters in Pure and Applied Mathematics shall have the following profile:
- Aptitude to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in universities and other educational institutions;
- Aptitude to enroll in a Doctorate program in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics or related fields;
- Maturity and independence to act professionally in areas which require the development and usage of mathematics in scientific and technical problems.
