engineering mathematics and computational science

masters programme

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.

engineering mathematics and computational science

aim of the programmeNew mathematical methods are necessary for understanding modern physics and chemistry, e.g. advanced mathematical and statistical models are required in climate science.Bioinformatics has quickly grown to become one of the big areas of applied mathematics. A continuing development of mathematical methods is necessary in order to deal with the huge amounts of in-formation generated by e.g. gene mapping. Who should applyEngineering Mathematics and Compu-tational Science turns to you who wants to sharpen your engineering studies with state-of-the-art mathematical competence as well as to you who with a keen curiosi-ty-driven mathematical interest. Of course, it also turns to you who have realised that deep mathematical knowl-edge is on demand in an ever increasing number of areas. Why applyThe Masters program provides a solid base in mathematics and/or mathematical statistics or computational science. It is also possible to choose a direction towards bioinformatics. We also offer a number of courses in financial mathematics.On completion of the Masters program,

you will be able to not only master a given area of engineering, but also take part in the development of mathematical models and algorithms.

career Up to date, roughly half of our ex-students have stayed in academia, i.e. as PhD stu-dents, in Sweden as well as abroad.Others have become employed in indus-try, for example in the automotive industry and the pharmaceutical industry or as consultants for industry. research connectionsResearch in mathematical sciences, in Sweden and elsewhere, is very intense. Mathematical research in on demand from an increasing number of sectors and at the same time mathematics continues to flourish as a research are in its own right.These directions of research are not in opposition to each other. On the contrary, they enrich and inspire each other. It is a fact that many of the mathematical results that are of very concrete use today, were developed by pure mathematical curiosity, sometimes decades or even centuries ago.

Swedish mathematical research is by tradition strong. In particular this is true also for the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Chalmers and Gothenburg University. The Department is joint for the

two universities, which helps to give it the size needed to create a stimulating envi-ronment, socially and scientifically.

A number of Masters students have continued their studies at the department towards a PhD.

chalmers uniVersity of technologyChalmers conducts research and edu ca tion in engineering and natural scien ces, architec ture, technology-relat ed mathe mati cal scienc es and nautical sciences in close collaboration with industry and society. Chalmers is one of Swedens largest universities of technology with about 12 000 students and 2 200 em ployees. Approximately 40 percent of Swedens graduate engineers and ar-chitects are educated here. Chalmers has formed partnerships with major industries mostly in the Gothenburg region such as Ericsson, Volvo and SKF. The Masters Programmes at Chalmers are strongly linked to advan-c ed research in areas of particular strength. Upon completion of stud-ies, candidates will be granted a Masters degree. The programmes are taught in English and open to applicants from the whole world. Chalmers has eight areas of advance where the aim is to bring together research, education and innovation across departmental boundaries and to co-operate with bodies and organisations out side Chalmers: Materials Science, Produ c tion, Information & Communica -tion Technology, Transport, Built Environment, Nano science & Nano-technology, Life Science and Energy. The eight key areas also have a firm foundation in the basic sciences. The pursuit of new knowledge and improved technology has characterized Chalmers ever since its foundation in 1829.www.chalmers.se/en

the small metropolis gothenBurgMore than 60 000 are currently studying in Gothenburg. In many ways, their decision to choose Gothenburg when the time came to take the next step into the future isnt surprising. Gothenburg is an attractive major city with a maritime atmosphere and within easy reach of outdoor activities in the rest of West Sweden. Gothenburg is an uncommonly inviting city for students, with a great deal to offer: Youll find an exciting cultural and entertain-ment scene worthy of any major city, as well as a friendly atmos-phere that will help you to quickly feel at home.

Founded in 1621, Gothenburg is a young city by European stand-ards. Since formative years it has been an important port of interna-tional trade and today it is the largest in Scandinavia. With a popula-tion of about half a million, it is both friendly and cosmopolitan. www.goteborg.com

sWeden a culture of innoVationOne of the worlds most modern countries, Sweden is the birth-place of many successful international corporations. Innovative research at Swedish universities and companies has resulted in a number of successful inventions. Some examples are: the computer mouse, Bluetooth for internet mobility, the pacemaker, the ball bearing, the Tetra Pak beverage packaging system, the dialysis machine and internet applications such as the online music streaming service Spotify and the free internet calling ser-vice Skype.These fairly recent inventions build on a long history of excellence in academia and research. Sweden is the home of the prestigious Nobel Prize, awarded in Stockholm every year. Sweden has a number of large multinational corporations, such as telecom supplier Ericsson, automotive companies Volvo and Scania, household appliances corporation Electrolux, bear-ing manufacturer SKF, and high-tech engineering groups Sand-vik and Atlas Copco. The deep-rooted creative environment has made Sweden a strong nation in the areas of design, fashion and music, with well-known international brands such as furni-ture giant IKEA and clothes retailer H&M. Sweden is also one of the largest music-exporting countries in the world.www.studyinsweden.se

Chalmers for a sustainable future is a vision which exudes the long-term approach, the acceptance of responsibility and the trust I feel is worthy of Chalm-ers. At the same time, it is obvious that this vision has to be shared by many and that Chalmers has to co-operate across disciplines in order to promote the whole of societys commitment to our future.

Chalmers for a sustainable future is a vision which
