DTU is following the COVID-19 situation and its impact closely, please consult the webpage to get the latest updates.

Mathematics is an integrated part of our everyday lives. It is found in mobile phones, train schedules, and online search engines—to give just a few examples.

The use of mathematics will become even more prevalent in future. There is an ever-increasing demand for mathematical models and methods in, e.g., industrial applications, information technology, financial institutions, energy, government issues, drug development, DNA mapping, and environmental research.

Focus areas

The Mathematical Modelling and Computation programme at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) covers a wide range of specializations. To provide a general overview of the study programme, we have chosen to describe a number of focus areas which you can use as a guide to designing your own study plan. 


In the field of mathematical modelling, mathematics is often used to solve problems in entirely different subject areas, such as medicine or the environment. In your future job, openness, curiosity, and good communication skills will thus prove necessary.

Typical fields of work/career opportunities

Mathematical Modelling and Computation graduates find jobs in industry and academia—both in Denmark and abroad. Examples include:

  • the IT sector
  • firms of consulting engineers and other consultancy firms
  • the pharmaceutical industry
  • logistics and development departments
  • private and public research institutions.
