Career opportunities

A significant aspect of this programme is the ability to offer new educational opportunities that are aligned with the needs of a 21st century workforce.

Many companies are seeking individuals who have knowledge of both a specific discipline and computational modeling. And candidates who are capable of modeling and understanding complicated systems in natural science, are in short supply in society.

Unique knowledge in the labour market

The computational methods and approaches to scientific problems that you will learn when working on your thesis project are very similar to the methods you will use in later stages of your career. To handle large numerical projects demands structured thinking and good analytical skills and a thorough understanding of the problems to be solved. This knowledge makes you unique in the labour market.

A wide range of work places

Career opportunities are many, from research institutes and laboratories, universities and university colleges and a multitude of companies. The programme gives an excellent background for further studies, with a PhD as one possible goal.
