At the Master Programme in Mathematics - Applied Mathematics and Statistics from Uppsala University, you will learn advanced methods for building mathematical models in science, technology and economics.


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 specialisation also offers the opportunity to study the mathematical aspects of the applications. 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. As a student of applied mathematics and statistics, you will therefore be provided with a solid foundation for further doctoral studies if you want to pursue a career in research. The programme provides a great freedom of choice, as you will be able to select courses that suit your interests, whether it is mathematical theory or applications.


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. 

The Department of Mathematics arranges a career day for mathematicians once a year. There, math students meet professional mathematicians who tell about their career paths. The department is also helpful with other types of contacts with the professional life.
