Program Description

Master's Programme in Engineering Mathematics

Mälardalen University

The programme will provide you with broad and deep mathematical knowledge about Mathematics and its applications – knowledge which is highly attractive on the labour market in the industrial and public sectors as well as in society in general. Tomorrow’s technology depends on mathematical methods and calculations and your education in Engineering Mathematics will give you the knowledge and skills you need to actively develop new technology, build a sustainable society and/or run your own successful business.

The Programme

The Master’s Programme in Engineering Mathematics prepares you for developing tomorrow’s technologies. You will learn to master mathematical methods and applications in statistics, information technology, computer science, energy and environmental technology, robotics and automatic control technology, optimisation and financial mathematics.

The programme’s course offerings are carefully planned yet flexible, and give you both good theoretical knowledge and a well-developed understanding of engineering methods and practices. You will also be able to deepen your knowledge within one or more areas of your choice. Among other options, two project courses are included in the programme, where you can come in direct contact with development and research, maybe in cooperation with a company.

Technical and mathematical skills are becoming more and more important in modern research and development, whether it is within typical engineering fields like information technology, communication technology, robotics and medical technology, or other fields such as finance or the health sciences.

Employment and Future Prospects

After completing the programme, you may have the opportunity to continue as a research student at Mälardalen University or another university in Sweden or abroad. Alternatively, your professional life after completing the programme can, for example, focus on research and development in your own business or at a Swedish or multinational company that uses mathematical or statistical methods, computations and algorithms in their technological solutions.
