1. Graduate programs (more information)

The professorship of applied mathematics is responsible for the graduate program in Systems and Operations Research offered in the curriculum of engineering physics. The number of students taking the programs as their major subject is annually about 20. The total number of active licentiate and doctoral students is about 30. After graduation our students are typically employed by industrial companies and research institutes. Our graduates have been in high demand in the telecommunication industry, power companies, financial institutions, environmental research projects, consulting companies and computer and software companies.
