This program gives you a sound knowledge of mathematics and how to use mathematics as a tool in areas such 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 program 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 the economy, encryption, and mechanics.
During the third and last year, you choose between deeper studies in an application field of your interest or more advanced courses in mathematics. The education is finished with a degree project of 15 credits.
The program prepares for master studies in mathematics and adjacent fields. It is possible to study it entirely in English.

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 to the applications than vice versa. Continued studies after the BSc will improve your possibilities in the labor market.
Bachelor of Science. The main field of study: Mathematics.
