Despite uncertainties related to the Covid-19 crisis, Roskilde University is committed and prepared to deliver high quality education on campus as well as online if needed.
On the Master in Mathematical Physical Modelling at Roskilde University you will learn to translate from reality to mathematics and back again, to understand the basic prerequisites for when mathematical models work and, especially, when they do not work. Mathematical models play an important role in almost every part of society and business, so graduates with these skills are highly valued in many sectors, including industry, the financial sector, and software development as well as the educational section.
Physics has a long tradition of describing the world with mathematics, so many physicists are employed in all the above fields. In the Mathematical Physical Modelling programme, we build on this tradition and combine mathematics and physics so you are introduced to both subjects' foundational disciplines and ways of thinking and learn how to develop and work with mathematical models. The program thus unites the abstraction of mathematics with the concrete approach to the world of physics.
The programme will provide you with the skills to identify, formalise, analyse, evaluate and solve problems within physics and mathematics independently or in cooperation with others. You will learn to understand, develop, implement and evaluate experimental studies, simulations, physical reasoning and mathematical proofs, and to understand, develop, apply and evaluate qualitative and/or quantitative models within the subjects.
The programme offers you a wide range of job opportunities in:
- High-tech manufacturing and development, including in the electronics and pharmaceutical industries
- The educational system
- The IT, insurance and pension industries
- Companies for which modelling, programming or consultancy plays an important role
The master degree qualifies graduates to start on a PhD programme.
