The Master Programme in Computational Science from Uppsala University dives into a multidisciplinary field where issues in areas such as chemistry, biology, physics, finance and geosciences are studied, using advanced computers and software to perform numerical simulations based on mathematical and statistical methods.Today, numerical simulations on computers based on mathematical and statistical models, plays a key roll in natural sciences and technology. Experiments and simulations produce enormous data sets and methods for drawing conclusions from these becomes more and more common.
The interdisciplinary content of the programme provides you with unique skills currently in demand in the labor market. There is an increasing need of qualified manpower that can combine scientific knowledge with mathematical modeling, programming of advanced computer systems, large scale data analysis and proficiencies in using modern computational scientific tools.
This combination is important, and a rapid increase in demand for qualified people with such combination is expected – both in Sweden and internationally.
The professional career may be in scientific or technical research and development, as scientific and/or technical advisor, consultant or project leader. The programme also prepares you for PhD studies in e.g. computational science, physics, bioscience, and mathematics.
