Doctoral studies at the Department of Mathematical Sciences means that you get to immerse yourself in mathematics or mathematical statistics by reading courses and working on your own research project. After completing your education, you receive a doctorate, and can choose to either continue in academia, or focus on a career in industry and business. You also have the option of taking a licentiate degree halfway through the education.
As a doctoral student at Mathematical Sciences, you can be admitted to a graduate school at Chalmers or to a third-cycle subject at the University of Gothenburg.
The education is similar at both universities, but there are differences, among other things, in terms of which compulsory courses you need to take. GTS courses (Generic and Transferable Skills) at Chalmers and compulsory courses at the Faculty of Science, University of Gothenburg.
Graduate schools at Chalmers University of Technology
Chalmers has three graduate schools, with a total of five specialisations, for you who want to do a doctorate at Mathematical Sciences.
A PhD student in mathematics or mathematical statistics can also be admitted to the interdisciplinary graduate school in Bioscience.
We train new researchers!
