About

Nowadays, one can without hesitation, state that there is mathematics in virtually everything. There is mathematics behind mobile phones, cars and oil tankers. Internet is built on mathematics and Google is based on probability theory. The Engineering Mathematics and Computational Science degree is offered at the Chalmers University of Technology.

Overview

New mathematical methods are necessary for understanding modern physics and chemistry, e.g. advanced mathematical and statistical models are required in climate science.

The Engineering Mathematics and Computational Science programme is offered by Chalmers University of Technology.

Bioinformatics has quickly grown to become one of the big areas of applied mathematics. A continuing development of mathematical methods is necessary in order to deal with the huge amounts of information generated by e.g. gene mapping.

Why apply

The Master's program provides a solid base in mathematics and/or mathematical statistics or computational science. It is also possible to choose a direction towards bioinformatics. We also offer a number of courses in financial mathematics.

On completion of the Master's program, you will be able to not only master a given area of engineering, but also take part in the development of mathematical models and algorithms.

Career

Up to date, roughly half of our ex-students have stayed in academia, i.e.\ as PhD students, in Sweden as well as abroad. Others have become employed in industry, for example in the automotive industry and the pharmaceutical industry or as consultants for industry.

Research connections

Research in mathematical sciences, in Sweden and elsewhere, is very intense. Mathematical research in on demand from an increasing number of sectors and at the same time mathematics continues to flourish as a research are in its own right.

These directions of research are not in opposition to each other. On the contrary, they enrich and inspire each other. It is a fact that many of the mathematical results that are of very concrete use today, were developed by pure mathematical curiosity, sometimes decades or even centuries ago.

Swedish mathematical research is by tradition strong. In particular this is true also for the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Chalmers and Gothenburg University. The Department is joint for the two universities, which helps to give it the size needed to create a stimulating environment, socially and scientifically.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Fourier analysis
  • Functional analysis
  • Mechanics of fluids
  • Mechanics of solids
  • Stochastic data processing and simulation
  • Stochastic calculus
  • Nonlinear optimisation
  • Nonlinear optimisation

Audience

Engineering Mathematics and Computational Science turns to you who wants to sharpen your engineering studies with state-of-the-art mathematical competence as well as to you who with a keen curiosity-driven mathematical interest. Of course, it also turns to you who have realised that deep mathematical knowledge is on demand in an ever increasing number of areas.

Funding

Scholarships are a great source of funding for Master's students who are liable to pay tuition fees. Chalmers University of Technology offers numerous scholarship opportunities. Some of these are administered by the university itself and others by external institutions.

Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
