Applied Mathematics

Rio de Janeiro


About the Course: 

The undergraduate course in Applied Mathematics was created for the development of contemporary mathematics adapted to the challenges of the new information and knowledge era. The course prepares the alumni to act in strategic sectors in both public and private organizations, as well as qualifying them for academic research and consulting projects.


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.

Professional Performance

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.

National High School Exam (Enem)

In addition to University Entrance Exams, FGV also classifies applicants based on Enem scores, as provided by the National Institute of Educational Research of the Ministry of Education (INEP/MEC).
