Mathematical modelling means working with mathematics in many different areas from health care to environmental engineering. It requires communication skills, creativity, an open mind, a broad interest in the world around us and the ability to work closely with others.

Mathematics is a part of our everyday lives: It is in cellular phones, train schedules and search engines–to name but a few. And its future looks even brighter. This MSc programme covers a wide range of topics in mathematics and its applications. The goal is to provide graduates with a solid foundation in applied mathematics and mathematical modelling for industrial research and development, combined with skills in operating modern computing facilities for handling large amounts of data.

Career Opportunities 

There is an ever increasing demand for mathematical models and methods in industrial applications, information technology, financial institutions, earth observation, health care, and many other areas driven by technological progress. The demand for quick and easy data-access is creating further opportunities. Examples include airline scheduling, medical imaging, DNA sequencing, wind power, and drug development.

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.
