Moving to a new country, starting studies and a new life is a big step. Luckily for you, our students have already been through the process! Therefore, they would like to invite you to a webinar for students by students.
This program will suit anyone who is interested in mathematics and wants to apply his or her skills to problem-solving and for creating new mathematical models. It also gives you the possibility to start an academic career.
Master's degree in mathematics with specialization in Analysis with Mathematical Physics, Algebra with Cryptography and Coding or Mathematical Statistics and Financial Mathematics.
This is Linnaeus University
Linnaeus University is a modern, international university in the southeast of Sweden. We are located in two nature-loving cities, one by the Baltic sea and one surrounded by lakes in the greenest city in Europe. More facts about Linnaeus University:
- Founded in 2010 through a merger between Kalmar University and Växjö University;
- Located in Kalmar and Växjö;
- 44,000 enrolled students;
- 2,200 enrolled international students;
- 6th largest university in Sweden in terms of the number of students;
- 780 partner universities in more than 80 countries;
- 100-degree programs on the first-cycle level, 8 of them taught in English;
- 80-degree programs on the second-cycle level, 35 of them taught in English.
Roughly 15 minutes by bike from the city center, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with a university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.
What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavor. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city center and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
Students will find work at companies needing knowledge of advanced mathematical modeling, for example within image processing, noise processing, information security, electric power, vehicle production, and construction. The specialization in Mathematical Statistics is especially interesting for banks and insurance companies. The program also prepares them for their Ph.D. studies.
There are three specializations (all end with a master thesis work).
Analysis with Mathematical Physics: Gives you a comprehensive education in mathematics, aimed at mathematical physics. You study courses in complex analysis, distribution theory, and partial differential equations
Algebra with Cryptography and Coding: You study general courses in mathematics and modeling besides courses in algebra, number theory, cryptography, and coding theory.
Mathematical Statistics and Financial Mathematics: You study courses in mathematics but you also train in stochastic thinking and statistic skills. It contains courses in e.g. probability theory, stochastic analysis, insurance mathematics, and financial modeling.
We also have an agreement with the University of Insubria in Como in Italy, where a corresponding program is offered. This means that you have a large selection of courses to choose from. You also have the possibility to, without any study fees, study one or two semesters in Como in order to be conferred a so-called double degree i.e., a degree from two different universities, which may be an advantage if you are considering an international career.
