What can I do with an MSc in Mathematical Modelling and Computation

In the field of mathematical modelling, mathematics is often used to solve problems in entirely different subject areas, such as medicine or the environment. In your future job, openness, curiosity, and good communication skills will thus prove necessary.

Typical fields of work/career opportunities

Mathematical Modelling and Computation graduates find jobs in industry and academia—both in Denmark and abroad. Examples include:

  • the IT sector
  • firms of consulting engineers and other consultancy firms
  • the pharmaceutical industry
  • logistics and development departments
  • private and public research institutions.

Pursue a PhD

Once you have an MSc in Engineering, you might get the opportunity to continue your studies and apply for admission to the three-year PhD, which at DTU is a research-based programme ranking among the best in the world. You can do either a regular PhD or an industrial PhD, the latter with concurrent employment in a company.

As a PhD student, you will be part of a research group and will carry out an independent scientific project.
