About us

The department hosts a variety of research groups in both pure and applied mathematics and is responsible for all mathematical education at KTH.

Our research activity includes a variety of international collaborations as well as tight ties with Stockholm University (via the Stockholm Mathematics Centre) and other national universities (via WASP and other projects). The proximity to the Institute Mittag-Leffler provides an important and fruitful interaction.

The department is directly responsible for the bachelor program in Engineering Mathematics (to start in 2021), two master programs: Mathematics (in collaboration with SU) and Computational and Applied Mathematics, and two Ph.D. programs under the same names.
