The FGV School of Applied Mathematics (FGV EMAp) was founded in 2011 with the goal of offering an undergraduate course in applied mathematics to train professionals capable of tackling real-life issues that require the production and study of mathematical models to solve them. More recently, the school has been working to turn itself into a center of reference for applied mathematics research, by moving into new areas, hiring more researchers and expanding its education program by establishing a doctoral course.
The course was designed based on three disciplinary pillars: Mathematics, Computing and Mathematical Modelling. The faculty features a diversified group of professors with different graduations, such as Mathematics, Engineering, Computer Science and Biology. This diversity contributes toward the versatility of applications in this area.
The professional graduated from EMAp is able to apply techniques of the essence of mathematics, information and computation in activities as diverse as financial market, fight against crime, mapping of socioeconomic tendencies and understanding the dynamics of reproduction of infectious and contagious diseases. Acting in these and other areas, he contributes to public and private organizations in their sectors of environmental monitoring, scenario analysis, strategic planning, risk management, among others.
