  1. Master's Programme in Applied and Computational Mathematics

    Applied and Computational Mathematics (ACM) is a field in which mathematics is used to solve practical and theoretical problems for different applied areas. Applied problem areas are often found within the natural sciences, in industry, resource management, medical image processing and other areas. The relevant problems are described mathematically in one or more equations through a modelling process. These equations are solved by using numerical tools, and the results are used to improve the understanding of the original problems. Another essential part of the field includes basic method development within applied mathematics, where one examines how different classes of mathematical problems can be represented and solved efficiently by using computers. An education in Applied and Computational Mathematics enables the student to solve practical problems within different applied areas by using mathematical modelling, analysis and numerical calculation. Moreover, the student is taught a theoretical fundament which contributes to the understanding of relevant academic literature and how to make use of new methods and results in applied work. The Master programme in ACM has two mandatory courses, both offered in the spring semester: MAT252 Continuum Mechanics and MAT260 Scientific Computing 2. For course recommendations, see specializations below and course lists at the bottom of the page. The Master programme usually consists of 60 ECTS courses and a 60 ECTS Master's thesis, alternative 90 ECTS courses and a 30 E ...

  4. Master's Programme in Biomedical Sciences

    The field of Biomedicine has a central role in shaping tomorrow's medicine. The Master's Programme in Biomedical Sciences presents a medical approach to physiology and molecular biology and offers you the opportunity to engage in biomedical research and to be an active member of an international research group.   The curriculum starts with a comprehensive exposure to methodological approaches used by scientists with in the field of biomedicine, from molecular and cellular biology, to human physiology and biomedical imaging.   From the very start students are placed in an active research environment and trained in relevant methodology. The theoretical courses focus on understanding cellular and physiological mechanisms, providing knowledge required for understanding human disease mechanisms and for future development of methods, diagnostics and therapies. Throughout the programme students are extensively educated in ethical aspects as well as "soft skills" such as scientific writing and dissemination skills. The major master project can be conducted in basic or translational research groups at the Faculty of Medicine.   We encourage all students to go on exchange to our international partners. We are part of a Nordic network (NordBioMedNet) with the following universities; the University of Copenhagen (Denmark), the Karolinska Insitutet (Sweden), the University of Turku and the University of Eastern Finland (both Finland). ...

  5. Master's Programme in Mathematics

    The programme is aimed at students with an interest in mathematics who intend to qualify for research, development or teaching and seek employment where education in mathematics is required or considered an advantage. Within the Master's Programme in Mathematics, you can choose among the following specialisations, mirroring the four main research groups within pure Mathematics: Algebra: The Master's programme in Algebra gives a general background in mathematics, with special focus on algebra and algebraic geometry. Algebra is a classical field that is associated with the study of polynomials in several variables. Mandatory courses: MAT224, MAT242 and MAT243. Algebraic Geometry: The Master's programme in Algebraic geometry gives a general background in mathematics, with special focus on algebraic geometry. This is an area where one uses techniques from algebra and topology, and often also complex analysis or number theory, to study geometric objects as curves, surfaces and higher dimensional manifolds that can be defined through polynomial equations. Mandatory courses: MAT229, MAT242, MAT243. Mathematical Analysis: The Master's programme in Mathematical Analysis provides a general background in mathematics, with a special focus on mathematical analysis. The original meaning of the word "mathematical analysis" is closely associated with functions of one or more real variables, but modern analysis involves several other topics, some of a more abstract nature, such as general topology, measure theory and functiona ...

  6. Master's Programme in Meteorology and Oceanography

    Objectives: The Master's Program in Meteorology and Oceanography provides comprehensive insight into the forces that control the movements of the atmosphere and the ocean including sea ice; central physical processes in the atmosphere and the ocean; the interaction between sea, sea ice and atmosphere; weather forecast, the cycling of nutrients and carbon in the ocean; and regional and global climate and climate change. The aim of the program is to provide insight into Earth's physical environment with specialisation in one or more of the atmosphere, ocean and sea ice components. Content: The foundation of the study is the understanding of both the physical and the mathematical description of central atmospheric and oceanographic phenomena. For this, measurements, experiments, theory and numerical modeling are used. Admission to the program requires a thorough background in meteorology, oceanography, mathematics and physics. For meteorology, the program provides the theoretical basis for weather phenomena, the use of numerical models to forecast the development of weather systems, study of boundary layer processes near the sea surface, sea ice or land surface, local weather and climate phenomena and study of atmospheric radiation processes. Physical oceanography and marine biogeochemistry provides knowledge of the theoretical and empirical basis for the physical processes that give rise to variation and change in the ocean, the cycling of matter in the ocean, the coupling between physical oceanography and marine ...

  7. Master's Programme in Physical Geography

    The effects of climate changes and natural hazards are problems society must deal with to protect the population and preserve values. In the Master's Programme in Physical Geography we study the exogenous processes that have shaped and shape the landscape, and offer a wide range of master projects. With main focus on Norway, the reasearch group in physical geography at the Department of Geography works with glaciers, natural hazards (floods, storminess, storm floods, snow avalanches etc.), sea level, hydrology, ground water, periglacial features, caves and landscape development related to past and present climate and environmental changes. We use a number of methods including equipment for coring of lakes, access to sediment analyses, and laboratory for GIS (Geographical Information Systems) and RS (Remote Sensing). Our research contribution has great relevance for societal safety and planning related to settlement, transport, water supply, and climate and energy transformation. The objective of the programme is to provide the student with theoretical, methodological and practical skills enabling them to qualify for a Master's degree in Physical Geography. The topics for master projects includes glaciers, natural hazards, sea level, hydrology, ground water, periglacial features, caves and landscape development related to past and present climate and environmental changes. The aim is to provide the student with analytical skills, critical thinking, relevant field- and laboratory methods as well as academic writ ...
