Program Description

Master in Applied and Computational Mathematics

KTH Royal Institute of Technology

Students from the master’s programme in Applied and Computational Mathematics will become skilled applied mathematicians, well-prepared for advanced industrial positions or continued graduate studies. The programme contains four tracks: Computational Mathematics, Financial Mathematics, Optimization and Systems Theory, and Statistical Learning and Data Analytics.

Applied and Computational Mathematics at KTH

The programme consists of foundation courses that are mandatory for all students, and once the individual specialisation track is chosen, there are relevant required courses within that area as well. Regardless of which track students attend, the final term consists of a degree project that may be carried out in an academic or industrial environment in Sweden or abroad. Students are welcome to discuss project ideas with the staff at the Department of Mathematics but are also encouraged to seek other contracts, in the academic world and in industry, to identify suitable projects. The result of the degree project is provided as a written report and as a presentation at a seminar.

Career prospects

Advanced mathematics and computer simulations are present within several important fields, their use has increased dramatically by the rapid development of computer software and hardware. Financial mathematics, medicine and biology are prevalent areas, but students will be able to bring the usage of mathematics and simulations into a multitude of applications.

The graduates of this programme are in high demand on the labour market as well as in academia. Alumni work in large and smaller companies like Ericsson, ABB, Comsol, SAAB, RaySearch Labs, Modelon, If, Citibank, Brainlab, ÅF, Atlas Copco, Elekta, Process Systems Enterprise, Goldman Sachs, and many others. Another alternative is an academic career where the programme’s alumni continue with doctoral studies at KTH, other Swedish universities, or other leading European and US universities.
