Faculty of Science
M.Sc. Engineering Mathematics and Computational Science

Nowadays, one can without hesitation, state that there is mathematics in virtually everything. There is mathematics behind mobile phones, cars and oil tankers. Internet is built on mathematics and Google is based on probability theory. Cryptology and secure data transfer are based on classical number theory. The Engineering Mathematics and Computational Science degree is offered at the Chalmers University of Technology.

Mathematics studies numbers, structure and change and draws its origins from early philosophy. This ancient discipline is commonly used for calculations, counting and measurements. However, mathematics is a complex field which also involves theories, discovery of patterns, development of law, nicknamed of “The queen of sciences” .

Throughout history, a significant amount of mathematicians such as Galileo Galilei, Albert Einstein, Pythagoras, Archimedes and many others brought innovations in mathematics and gave birth to new theories and solutions to analytical problems. Mathematical principles can also be found in disciplines such as medicine, natural sciences, engineering, finance and social sciences.

Students who hold a Bachelor’s degree in mathematics can turn to applied mathematics, statistics, physics or engineering, if they wish to continue their studies. Such a programme develops skills such as knowledge of arithmetic, algebra, trigonometry and strong deductive reasoning. After graduating a Master’s degree in mathematics, students have the choice to be employed as operational researchers, statisticians, aerospace engineers, accountants, software testers or teachers.
