Master's Programme in Mathematics and Numerical Analysis

Programme overview

The purpose of the Master’s programme in Mathematics is to give students advanced theoretical knowledge of mathematics together with practical skills to apply this knowledge both to mathematical problems and in applications of mathematics. A highly flexible structure that allows for individual adaptation, diversified curriculum, a high theoretical level, and an active research-oriented environment are some of the strongest features of the programme.

The programme has two specialisations - Mathematics and Numerical Analysis. A vast variety of courses in all mathematical disciplines - pure and applied mathematics, numerical analysis and mathematical statistics - are available within the programme.

The programme has been evaluated by a panel of mathematicians appointed by The Swedish Higher Education Authority (Universitetskanslersämbetet) and was ranked ‘Of highest quality’.
