The main objective of this program is to educate skilled applied mathematicians, well prepared for advanced industrial positions or continued graduate studies.

Kunskap och förståelse

A Master  of Science in Applied  and Computational Mathematics will:

  • have a broad knowledge in applied mathematics  as well as a significantly deepened knowledge within the chosen area of specialization, including techniques of mathematical mo- delling, analysis of mathematical models, and simulation,
  • be able to, in an independent manner, apply mathematical theories, methods and models,
  • be able to formulate and approach new problem settings in a scientific manner, by having a creative, critical and systematic attitude towards applied mathematics.

Färdigheter och förmågor

A Master  of Science in Applied  and Computational Mathematics will be able to:

  • formulate mathematical models, choose suitable methods to investigate those models including the efficient use of computer tools,
  • analyze different mathematical models within science and technology and work creatively, systematically and critically,
  • work out solution strategies to important classes of mathematical problems, knowing the capabilities and limitations of different methods and tools,
  • work efficiently in a teamwork environment,
  • communicate results and conclusions in a competent and intelligible manner, both orally and in writing, with management, experts, and society at large,
  • follow and participate in research and development related to the chosen specialization.

Värderingsförmåga och förhållningssätt

A Master of Science in Applied  and Computational Mathematics will be able to:

  • critically  judge validity and limitations  of the results obtained from different  types  of mathematical models,
  • identify  the need for further knowledge in the field and take  initiatives  to keeping the personal knowledge up to date.

Beyond this, the goals for Master’s degrees defined in the Higher Education Ordinance and the local degree policy of KTH apply.
