The courses in the Mathematics programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology are organised into three blocks: basic, profile and broadening. The basic block provides in-depth education at an advanced level. Within this block, it is mandatory to take one course in each of the following areas: algebra and geometry, analysis, topology, and discrete mathematics. In the profile block, courses are chosen freely to specialise and prepare for the master's degree project – the subject is regarded in a broad sense, and includes mathematical statistics, optimisation theory and theoretical computer science. The broadening block contains courses on theory and methodology of science, communication of mathematical subjects and a half term of freely elective courses.
The partnership with SU makes this program unique and allows to offer courses covering a broad selection of topics within mathematics.
Mathematics is becoming increasingly important in society, and one key function of this programme is to educate tomorrow’s industrial mathematicians. Problem-solving and logical reasoning are key qualities that employers look for, and training these abilities lies at the heart of our programme.
In the basic block, students will be given the opportunity to take their general skills to an advanced level by studying core subjects in mathematics. More specialised or interdisciplinary areas of expertise can be studied in our profile and broadening blocks, giving the student the necessary means to adequately prepare for the job market. The job prospects are outstanding and most students find good jobs relatively shortly after graduating. Many find jobs as a data analyst, financial analyst and within software engineering at a variety of attractive companies.
