Master of Science in Scientific Computing
Change language to
From the autumn 1997 you can study for Master's degree in Scientific
Computing at Nada. This Programme is repeated annually, with start in
August each year. The Swedish name of the degree obtained is "Teknologie
Magisterexamen", which is translated into Master of Science in Scientific
Scientific Computing, a program to count with in the future
In Scientific Computing numerical methods are designed, analysed and applied
for the purpose of
insight in and solution of mathematical models. The fast development of
hardware and software has significantly increased the importance of
large scale computation in the community, and Scientific Computing is nowadays
regarded as a third paradigm in combination with theory and experiment.
Through computer simulation and optimization of mathematical models the time
for design and control of new products and processes can be reduced
Students and teachers in the Master Programme of '98
The Master Programme is offered by the School of Computer Science,
Electrical Engineering and Engineering Physics
at KTH, the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden.
The Programme is given by the Department of Numerical Analysis and Computing
is open to students from all over the world, and is offered free of charge.
The program language is English.
The scientific course program gives profound knowledge in Scientific
Computing for large industrial processes and comprises a number of areas:
Numerical methods, matematical modeling,
object oriented program construction, algorithms for parallel programming
and applications in fluid dynamics, electro-magnetics, financial mathematics,
computational physics and chemistry.
More detailed course plans are given in
At least 40 credits of the Master's program is to be taken from the courses.
At the end of the course work, five months (20 credits) are spent on a thesis
project which will entail solving a problem within the domain of the program.
The thesis project will be conducted under the guidance of an advisor at the
department. The project can originate from an industrial problem, or be
suggested from one of the research groups at the department. The project is
presented as a report, the Master's Thesis and, finally, in an oral seminar.
When the course program and the Master Thesis have been passed, the Degree
Master of Science in Scientific Computing is awarded from KTH. The
Swedish translation of this title is Teknologie Magisterexamen.
Study and Research environment
KTH is the largest Technical University in Sweden, located in Stockholm.
The M.Sc. program is given by the Department of Numerical Analysis and
Computing Science (Nada) which is located
in the oldest building of campus in newly remodelled localities.
the Center for Parallel Computers, and
,Parallel and Scientific Computing
Institute are both subdivisions of Nada located in the same building.
PDC provides excellent supercomputing facilities with IBM SP2, Cray J90 and
Fujitsu Vpp. At PSCI researchers work on problems with strong industrial
influence. Several leading Swedish industrial companies have research exchanges
with PSCI. Prof Björn Engquist, Nada, KTH and Dep of Math, UCLA is research
leader at PSCI and head of the M.Sc. program. It is intended that M.Sc.
students in the Scientific Computing program carry out their thesis work
within this environment.
Students and teachers in the Master Programme of '99
Courses start at the middle of August and finish around the end of May.
The thesis project is started before summer, after the first year,
and continued during the autumn.
Applicants should have an academic background adequate for Scientific
Computing. It is important to have a solid background in mathematics,
and experience of solving problems with computers. Professional work experience
in related fields will be considered as a merit. Applicants shall have
completed their undergraduate studies (B.Sc., B.Eng. or equivalent thereof)
or equivalent academic merits, such as 120 credits in the Swedish university
system, comparable to e.g. the first three years of studies for the KTH
There are no tuition fees at the KTH (apart from a small fee for
obligatory membership in the Students' Union). Applicants will have to cover
living expenses, travel costs and course material on their own. Applicants are
therefore encouraged to
seek financial suport in their countries of origin. A limited number of
scholarships may become available from the Sweden, see the
APPLICATION NOTES. Observe that KTH has no
scholarships to offer Master students.
