The FISYMAT is an official master's degree jointly taught by the UCLM and the University of Granada. The FISYMAT offers a solid and multidisciplinary training in different branches of Physics and Mathematics through its four specialties: Astrophysics and Astronomy; Biomathematics; Mathematical Methods and Models in Sciences and Engineering; Theoretical and Mathematical Physics. At the UCLM, the specialty in Biomathematics is promoted. Currently, Physics and Mathematics provide new tools and approaches that promote scientific advances in Biology and Biotechnology. For example, the physico-mathematical modeling of the spread of tumors or the behavior of new biopolymeric materials.
The Double Master's Degree MUFPS-FISYMAT is also offered, which leads to obtaining the following Master's degrees:University Master's Degree in Teacher of Compulsory Secondary Education and Baccalaureate, Professional Training and Teaching of Languages in the Specialty of Mathematics (MUFPS).
Interuniversity Master's Degree in Physics and Mathematics (FISYMAT).The Double Degree corresponds to 102 ECTS credits, distributed in three semesters (year and a half), of which 60 ECTS credits correspond to the MUFPS Master (first and second semester) in the Mathematics Specialty and 42 ECTS credits to the FISYMAT Master (second and third semester).Training objectivesThe objective of the FISYMAT is to provide the student with an advanced academic training of a specialized, multidisciplinary and versatile nature, focused on various areas where a physical and mathematical analysis and treatment play a decisive role. Given the interdisciplinarity of current science, it seeks to train people who adapt easily to changing technologies and markets, improving and strengthening technology transfer processes. It is intended that they be able to elaborate and develop advanced physical and mathematical reasoning, as well as obtain and interpret physical and mathematical data that can be applied in other branches of scientific and technological knowledge such as Biomathematics and Biophysics.
The advanced nature of the FISYMAT allows Physics and Mathematics students to improve and complete their training in order to enter the labor market.
Also a primary objective of this program is that students who pass the training stage in the master are perfectly prepared to qualify for the doctoral degree.CompetenciesPlan the resolution of physical and mathematical problems based on available tools and time and resource constraints.
Develop the ability to decide the appropriate techniques to solve a specific problem from the physical and mathematical modeling of problems from other branches of knowledge.
Develop the ability to understand and be able to apply advanced knowledge of mathematics and numerical or computational methods to problems in Biology and Physics.
Develop the ability to model, interpret and predict from experimental observations and numerical data.Professional outingsThe FISYMAT prepares students for a wide range of academic and research career opportunities. Graduates will be able to develop their professional activity in the research and academic career, previously carrying out a doctoral thesis. As well as in the industry or in companies that have R + D + io departments in technology companies and cross-access companies, such as IT, financial and consulting companies.
The Double Master's Degree MUFPS-FISYMAT enables to teach in compulsory secondary education, baccalaureate and professional training in the specialty of Mathematics, as well as giving access to the Doctoral Program in Physics and Mathematics, as well as other doctoral programs in Spanish and foreign universities, whose training is aimed at developing a research career.Admission profileThe Fisymat master is indicated for students who wish to carry out a doctoral thesis in Mathematics and / or Physics. The orientation of these studies will preferably be multidisciplinary, although without excluding other possibilities. Therefore, this program is aimed at students with an interest in research in these sciences.
Graduates in Physics and Mathematics, Graduates in other Experimental Sciences, Engineers, other graduates.Admission criteriaThe admission criteria to the FISYMAT are:Academic record: between 70% and 100%.
Candidate's CV: between 0% and 20%.
Professional experience: between 0% and 10%.At the University of Castilla-La Mancha, as an admission requirement the student is required to prove a level of English equal to or higher than B1.
