Seminar overall mission and scope

The Higher Seminar in Mathematics and Applied Mathematics is the main regular seminar activity in the subject Mathematics/Applied Mathematics organized by MAM (Mathematics and Applied Mathematics) research environment at the school UKK at Mälardalen University.  

Higher Seminar in Mathematics and Applied Mathematics is developed in the following four tracks:

  • Mathematics and Applied Mathematics (This is the main track of the subject’s seminar main track)
  • Interdisciplinary cooperation within and outside MDU (at MDU including in particular interaction of Mathematics/Applied mathematics with other subjects and established areas at all four schools UKK, EST, IDT and HVV of the university)
  • Co-production and collaboration (SOS) with other universities nationally and internationally,  industry, research laboratories an institutes, municipality and the surrounding community
  • Interaction between Mathematics/Applied Mathematics and Educational Sciences (Didactics) within the school UKK
     

The broad interdisciplinary nature and content of Higher Seminar in the subject of Mathematics and Applied Mathematics stems from the Mathematics overall interdisciplinary character and its important role for sustainable operation and high scientific quality at Mälardalen University and for collaboration with other universities, industry, community and the surrounding community nationally and internationally.

The subject Mathematics/Applied Mathematics at Mälardalen University has important overall responsibility at the university for that the high knowledge content and quality in engineering education and economics education and teacher education programs can be maintained and degree awarding powers in many other subjects at Mälardalen University can be secured and developed.
