Mathias Henningsson

Associate Professor

I am teaching in a number of courses in Production Economics and Optimization. I love working with education, both through administration but also as a teacher.


I am a teacher at the division of Production Economics. I teach at the the undergraduate and advanced level students in the engineering programs like Industrial Engineering and Management and Mechanical Engineering.

I started working at Linköping University at the Department of Mathematics, division Optimization as a doctoral student, subject teacher, lecturer and director of studies from 1996 until 2008. During that time I got my PhD 2003. I then moved to the Department of Management and Engineering 2008 at the Division of  Production Economics.

Teaching in Production Economics and Optimization 

I really like teaching and during the years, I have mainly been teaching the two engineering programs Industrial Engineering and Management and the Mechanical Engineering in the subjects Optimization and Production Economics. I am one of the authors of an exercise-book in Optimization (in Swedish 2008 and an English version 2010).
