      The elective courses comprise a total of 45 higher education credits. Among these at least 15 credits must be additional courses in mathematics, numerical analysis and mathematical statistics. A maximum of 30 credits may be courses at basic level or courses in other subject areas.

      Relavant courses in mathematics, numerical analysis and mathematical statistics are listed under Course Offerings available on the left menu.

      The programme ends with a degree project that can be carried out at half study pace during the second year or at full study pace in the last semester within the programme.
