In the Applied mathematics programme, you will learn to model and solve problems from the practical world using advanced mathematical tools. Aside from the basic mathematical principles, in Applied mathematics you will become acquainted with mathematical modelling, i.e. formulating complex problems in applications as mathematical problems, in order to analyse them and perform calculations digitally.
To be admitted to the Master programme in Applied mathematics, you must hold a relevant Bachelor's degree.
All master programmes at the Faculty of Science are characterised by a large number of electives. This allows you to specialise by taking elective courses at SDU or abroad or by conducting a research project in close cooperation with a business.
Today, computer simulations have become an indispensible tool in research, to increase our understanding of nature, as well as in the design and development of industrial services and products.
As an applied mathematician, you will work with computer simulations of challenging and complex phenomena, with job openings in many different kinds of private businesses, as well as universities and other research institutions.
You can also opt for a career in teaching. You will, however, not fulfil the formal requirements for high school teachers in Denmark, which require a degree in pure mathematics.
