Program Description

Master in Mathematics and Modelling. Specialisation: Algebra with Cryptography and Coding

Linnaeus University

The technology we use in today's society is to an ever-increasing extent based on mathematical models and calculations.

This programme will suit anyone who is interested in mathematics and wants to apply his or her skills to problem-solving and for creating new mathematical models. It also gives you the possibility to start an academic career.

There are three specializations (all end with a master thesis work).

Algebra with Cryptography and Coding: You study general courses in mathematics and modeling besides courses in algebra, number theory, cryptography and coding theory.

We also have an agreement with the University of Insubria in Como in Italy, where a corresponding programme is offered. This means that you have a large selection of courses to choose from. You also have the possibility to, without any study fees, study one or two semesters in Como in order to be conferred a so-called double degree i.e., a degree from two different universities, which may be an advantage if you are considering an international career.


Entry Requirements

General entry requirements for second-cycle studies and specific entry requirements:

  • Bachelor Degree in Mathematics, Physics, Electronics, Computer Science, Economics or the equivalent, including 60 credits in Mathematics.
