The master’s programme in Applied and Engineering Mathematics (120 ECTS) gives you the knowledge to apply mathematics and problem-solving in a wide range of fields. Study at two universities, graduate with a double degree, and gain all-round mathematical skills.

The central subjects in the Applied and Engineering Mathematics programme are the theories of ordinary and partial differential equations, numerical methods for differential equations, probability and statistics, numerical linear algebra, optimization, and discrete mathematics.

The focal point is learning to turn engineering and applied science problems into mathematical questions, and looking for the solutions. Moreover, the programme brings students to a Nordic Five Tech environment, giving them the chance to study at two universities in the Nordic region.

Since this is an N5T programme, students study at two of the five Nordic partner universities: Aalto University School of Science in Finland, Technical University of Denmark, KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden, Norwegian University of Science and Technology and Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden.

During the first year, instruction consists of theoretical courses that prepare students for specialization in the second year. These studies include individual project works. After the first academic year, a common summer school is organized for all students in the programme.

The language of instruction is English. Upon graduation, students will receive a degree from each of the two universities in which they spent a part of their studies, thus receiving a double degree.

Career Opportunities  

The graduates from this programme will also be qualified for demanding positions in industry, particularly in fields that require the use of mathematical models, optimization, and simulation. In many cases already the M.Sc. thesis work will be done in research units of companies and public service.

The students can continue in PhD programmes in applied and engineering mathematics, but they will also be excellent candidates for many PhD programs in computational science areas.


To be admitted to this programme, you must have an academic bachelor degree.

Danmarks Tekniske Universitet's hovedadresse ligger i Lyngby 10 kilometer nord for København, og det er primært her at DTU studerende bliver undervist. Du kan tage turen til DTU i Lyngby med bil eller ved hjælp af offentlige transportmidler. Der kører flere busser næsten lige til døren og Lyngby Station ligger 2 km. væk, men også her er der gode busforbindelser, f.eks. bus nr. 300S mod Nærum eller bus nr. 190. Begge har stoppested på Anker Engelunds Vej.
