University rank #190 (WUR) ,
The focal point of the Applied and Engineering Mathematics (N5TeAM) master programme from Aalto University is learning to turn the engineering and applied science problems into mathematical questions, and looking for the solutions.


The central subjects in Applied and Engineering Mathematics (N5TeAM) master programme from Aalto University are the theories of ordinary and partial differential equations, numerical methods for differential equations, probability and statistics, numerical linear algebra, optimization and discrete mathematics.

N5TeAM offers five specialisation lines and elevens study tracks:

  • Applied Stochastics and Statistics (Chalmers-NTNU, NTNU-Chalmers)
  • Computational Mechanics (Aalto-Chalmers, DTU-NTNU, KTH-NTNU)
  • Cryptology and Coding Theory (Aalto-DTU, NTNU-DTU)
  • High Performance and Scientific Computing (KTH-Aalto, Chalmers-Aalto)
  • Scientific Computing and Biocomputing (DTU-KTH, NTNU-KTH)

The programme brings the students to a Nordic Five Tech environment, which gives students the chance to study at two leading technical universities in the Nordic region:

  • Aalto University School of Science in Finland
  • The Technical University of Denmark
  • KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden
  • The Norwegian University of Science and Technology
  • Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden.

      English Language Requirements

      You only need to take one of these language tests:

      • Minimum required score:


        The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

      • Minimum required score (Grade C):


        The CAE test – or the Cambridge Advanced English – is an exam for applicants who wish to get a Certificate in Advanced English. To receive the Advanced certificate, test-takers must score between 142 and 210 on the Cambridge English: Advanced test. Read more about CAE.

        Note: degree programmes and applications may require a more specific minimum score for admission.

      • Minimum required score:


        The TOEFL – or Test OF English as a Foreign Language – offers a paper-based test (PBT). The final, overall PBT score ranges between 310 and 677, and is based on an average taken from the three test components (listening, structure, and reading). The writing part of this test is scored separately on a scale of 0-6. Read more about TOEFL (PBT).

      • Minimum required score:


        The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).

      Academic Requirements
