Program Description

Master in Mathematics and Applications: Stochastic tools and Computational Methods for Decision

Université de Pau et des Pays de l'Adour

Overview

This degree is delivered after 12 months.

This program offers advanced courses on statistical analysis, business intelligence, computer modelling and associated computer tools.

This program allows continuing with doctoral studies, either in an academic context or in an industrial context (the collaboration between industry and UPPA).

Program objectives

  • This programme aims to provide strong skills in stochastic modelling and statistical methods for data analysis, jointly with the associated computer tools.
  • Courses are focusing both on applications in industry, especially in the area of quality control and safety analysis, and on applications in data mining and machine learning.
  • Courses are taught by academics but also by engineers
  • According to the excellence of students and their desire to pursue doctoral studies, courses about « advanced statistics » and « advanced applied probability » can be offered.
