In Master Programme in Mathematics - Applied Mathematics and Statistics from Uppsala University you will learn to describe reality using mathematics. You will study the mathematical theory of random phenomena and advanced statistical methods for modelling in different areas. You will also obtain sound knowledge in dynamical systems and use it to solve problems in everything from biology and physics to economics and sociology.
The research in applied mathematics and statistics at Uppsala University focuses on areas such as time series analysis, big data and computer-aided proofs in analysis. We also have more application-oriented research, conducted in close collaboration with researchers in other fields.
Mathematical skills are necessary in all industries where large amounts of information need to be processed. If you don't know what mathematicians outside academia do, it's probably because mathematicians usually have other titles. Did you know, for example, that there are mathematicians who work in medical research?Our graduates work at, for example, Ericsson, NetEnt and Swedbank. Some of the more common titles among our alumni are biostatistician and system developer. Furthermore, many work as different types of analysts. A new profession on the rise is data scientist.
