Nowadays, one can without hesitation, state that there is mathematics in virtually everything. There is mathematics behind mobile phones, cars and oil tankers.
Nowadays, one can without hesitation, state that there is mathematics in virtually everything. There is mathematics behind mobile phones, cars and oil tankers. Internet is built on mathematics and Google is based on probability theory. Cryptology and secure data transfer are based on classical number theory.
New mathematical methods are necessary for understanding modern physics and chemistry, e.g. advanced mathematical and statistical models are required in climate science.
Bioinformatics has quickly grown to become one of the big areas of applied mathematics. A continuing development of mathematical methods is necessary in order to deal with the huge amounts of information generated by e.g. gene mapping.
Who should apply
Engineering Mathematics and Computational Science turns to you who wants to sharpen your engineering studies with state-of-the-art mathematical competence as well as to you who with a keen curiosity-driven mathematical interest. Of course, it also turns to you who have realised that deep mathematical knowledge is on demand in an ever increasing number of areas.
The Master's program provides a solid base in mathematics and/or mathematical statistics or computational science. It is also possible to choose a direction towards bioinformatics. We also offer a number of courses in financial mathematics.
On completion of the Master's program, you will be able to not only master a given area of engineering, but also take part in the development of mathematical models and algorithms.
