The Mathematical Bioscience programme from Roskilde University lets you specialise in mathematical modelling of society health and individual disease developments, ecology, or mathematical methods in this area. Examples include optimisation of cancer and diabetes treatments, prevention of epidemic outbreaks, design of environmental solutions, or development and implementation of efficient parameter estimation methods.

Through problem-oriented project learning and interdisciplinary problem solving, you will learn advanced mathematics and biology, and you will learn to describe biological systems and processes with mathematics. You will perform analysis and numerical explorations of data and models and solve biological relevant challenges through mathematics.

You will gain competencies in planning and executing multi-disciplinary projects, and through student driven activities you will learn to work with and organise biological data and solve complex biological problems by the help of mathematical methods. Computer programming and simulations are integrated parts of the programme.


The programme gives you a wide range of job opportunities in, for example:

  • biochemistry and biotech-industries,
  • the health sector (hospitals),
  • consultancy companies within the environmental area, and
  • the research and development sector.
