This 120 EC research specialisation is built up as follows:
|A.||Track electives||30 EC|
|B.||Mathematical electives||18 EC|
|C.||Master electives||15 EC|
|D.||Master Thesis Project Mathematics||40 EC|
|E.||Master Seminar||6 EC|

Overall, a maximum of 12 ec of third year bachelor's courses in Mathematics is allowed, to be approved by the examination board.
A. Track electives (30 EC)
Forthe core track Applied Mathematics choose at least 30 EC from the list of track electives below. You have to choose courses from different rows. If you are interested in more than one course per row, you can always choose them as elective courses. Note that some of the courses are taught biennially.
Course information and schedules for the Mastermath courses may be found on the Mastermath website.
