Master's programs and master's projects

We are welcoming master's students. To do your master's project at CTA², you need to enroll in the mathematics 2-years master's program of the VU Amsterdam, which starts every September and February. The entry requirements are a bachelor's degree in mathematics or closely related fields. The research for the master's project is undertaken during the second year of study. You choose your supervisor during the first year of study.

The master's program requires to follow some classes. Currently offered courses to choose from that are of most interest for researcher in geometry and topology are:

  • Algebraic Geometry 1, 2, advanced
  • Elliptic curves
  • Algebraic Topology 1, 2
  • Topological data analysis
  • Homotopy type theory
  • Differential Geometry
  • Riemannian surfaces
  • Simplectic geometry
  • Poisson geometry
  • Graph symmetries and Combinatoric design
  • Category theory
  • Topos theory

The topic for the master thesis is chosen in discussion with the supervisor. The following list is a compilation of suggested master projects at CTA².
