Mission and goals
This study programme aims at preparing professionals who are able to deal with complex design and managing problems by using advanced mathematical tools, yet with an engineering attitude. It combines a solid background in basic science with a sound knowledge of modern methods and technologies, with a persistent synergy between applied mathematics and engineering.
When applying, the prospective student has to choose one out of the following three tracks:
- Computational Sciences for Engineering
- Financial Mathematics
A Bachelor Degree in Mathematical Engineering or in a related area, with a solid background in the core disciplines: applied mathematics, computer science, physics, engineering.
The professional opportunities opened by this programme are rather various and widespread: R&D divisions in manufacturing or engineering companies that deal with complex computational problems or that anyway need advanced mathematical tools; banks, insurance companies and financial institutions making use of quantitative finance for risk analysis or forecast; companies that require statistical interpretation and processing of complex data, or scenario simulation; public and private research institutes and laboratories.
