Applied Mathematics Programme

180 credits

This programme gives you sound knowledge of mathematics and how to use mathematics as a tool in areas as computer science, economy and engineering.

With sound knowledge of mathematics and good practice in programming and in handling computer aided mathematics tools, you are well prepared for deeper studies in applied mathematics. This study programme gives you all this! Besides courses in pure mathematics you study mathematical modeling, numerical methods, programming and statistics. You will use modern software in the math courses as well – it will give you a deeper understanding of the subject. In three courses you will learn the mathematical methods in economy, encryption and mechanics.

During the third and last year you choose between deeper studies in an application field of your interest or more advances courses in mathematics. The education is finished with a degree project of 15 credits.

The programme prepares for master studies in mathematics and adjacent fields.


Fields where mathematicians are in demand are for example information security, engineering problems in the manufacturing industry, actuarial mathematics, design of experiments and statistical studies. Deep knowledge of mathematics together with skills in programming makes you attractive in the labor market. It is easier to move from math towards the applications than vice versa. Continued studies after the BSc will improve your possibilities in the labor market.


Bachelor of Science. Main field of study: Mathematics.

Students from this programme will have vast opportunities in the future, since mathematics is a universal language
