Since 2016, the DMM has provided a Graduate Program for Advanced Interdisciplinary Studies, called “Mathematical Modeling.” This program consists of two courses: Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Systems Science. Both courses are open to all Osaka University graduate students.
The Applied Mathematics course employs a mathematical approach to represent and demonstrate various problems in the world today. Students taking this course acquire the knowledge and skills to use mathematical and scientific principles to formulate and solve problems in the natural sciences, engineering, medicine, etc.
In the Mathematical Systems Science course, students learn to make scientific decisions based on mathematics and data analysis. Upon completion of the course, students acquire an understanding of natural phenomena and mathematical techniques, which allows them to play an active role in various industries including manufacturing, transportation, information and communications industries, finance and investigation, as well as primary industries such as agriculture and mining.
