Two of the world’s foremost research facilities for materials research and life science are established in Lund. MAX IV, which was inaugurated in June 2016, is the leading synchrotron radiation facility in the world.
The European research facility ESS will be the world’s most powerful neutron source when it opens for research in 2023.
MAX IV and ESS will have a major impact on future scientific and industrial development in both materials science and life science.
Ideon Science Park, Medicon Village and Science Village Scandinavia are closely linked to Lund University, integrating research, innovation and entrepreneurship.
This is an academic program designed for students with a strong interest in mathematics, mathematical statistics and scientific computing. Flexibility and individual adaptation are keywords. The program is structured in a highly flexible manner, especially designed to give students solid theoretical knowledge in mathematics at the same time as providing possibilities for each student to pursue his/her own educational profile according to interests and career aspirations. A vast variety of courses in mathematics, statistics and numerical analysis are available within the program together with courses from all other science areas, economy and finance, engineering as well as humanities and social sciences. For students with a strong interest in pure mathematics, the program offers a path of courses at a higher theoretical level that can be continued at Master’s and even further at PhD level. For those students interested in more applied areas there is a high degree of flexibility in choosing course combinations suitable for certain professions. For instance, courses in mathematical statistics and numerical analysis can be combined with courses in financial mathematics and economics. Another usual path is combining studies in mathematics and physics. Each direction implies a different combination of courses. Predefined recommended course chains suitable for the different directions are available and study counseling is provided throughout the entire program.
