    The elective courses comprise 45 credits, of which at least 15 credits must be additional courses in mathematics, numerical analysis and mathematical statistics. A maximum of 30 credits may be courses at the basic level. The department has a wide range of courses in mathematical statistics and there is also a large range of relevant courses in applied mathematics that are given by the department of mathematics at the Faculty of Engineering. Courses in mathematics and numerical analysis at upper-basic level that have not been included in the student's bachelor's degree can be included in this block. For example, the courses Computational Programming with Python (NUMA01, 7.5 credits) and Numerical Linear Algebra (NUMB11, 7.5 credits) are available.

    Relavant courses in mathematics, numerical analysis and mathematical statistics are listed under Course Offerings available on the left menu.

      The programme ends with a degree project that can be carried out at half study pace during the second year or at full study pace in the last semester within the programme.

      Older course requirements
