Overview

The Applied and Computational Mathematics programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology offers four tracks: Computational Mathematics, Financial Mathematics, Optimisation and Systems Theory, and Mathematics of Data Science.

The programme consists of foundation courses that are mandatory for all students, and once the individual specialisation track is chosen, there are relevant mandatory courses within that area as well. 

The programme offers four tracks: Computational Mathematics, Financial Mathematics, Optimisation and Systems Theory, and Mathematics of Data Science.

Regardless of which track students attend, the final term consist of a degree project that may be carried out in an academic or industrial environment in Sweden or abroad. 

Students are welcome to discuss project ideas with the staff of the Department of Mathematics, but are also encouraged to seek other contacts, in the academic world and in industry, to identify suitable projects. 

The result of the degree project is provided as a written report and as a presentation at a seminar.

Career

Advanced mathematics and computer simulations are present within several important fields, their use having increased dramatically by the rapid development in computer software and hardware. 

Financial mathematics, medicine and biology are prevalent areas, but students will be able to bring the usage of mathematics and simulations into a multitude of applications.

The graduates of this programme are in high demand on the labour market as well as in academia. Alumni work in large and smaller companies like Ericsson, ABB, Comsol, SAAB, RaySearch Labs, Modelon, If, Citibank, Brainlab, ÅF, Atlas Copco, Elekta, Process Systems Enterprise, Goldman Sachs, and many others. 

Another alternative is an academic carrier in which the programme’s alumni continue with their doctoral studies at KTH, other Swedish universities, or other leading European and US universities.
