Master in Mathematics and Applications: Mathematics, Modeling and Simulation

General

Program Description

This degree is delivered after 12 months.

The program provides excellent training in many different areas of applied mathematics related to modeling with partial differential equations, with applications in fluid mechanics, wave propagation, porous media, etc.

This program provides access to doctoral studies, either in an academic context or in an industrial context (a collaboration between industry and UPPA).

Program Objectives

  • This program aims to provide strong skills in applied mathematics (partial differential equations analysis, numerical analysis, scientific computing and high-performance computing, optimization).
  • Courses are focusing on applications in industrial problems, fluid mechanics, wave propagation, optimal design, etc.
  • This program prepares students for leading positions in private and public organizations in research and development departments.
