In this sense, it is essential that there is a postgraduate training process that provides students with adequate scientific development so that the knowledge and skills previously acquired can be adapted to the new needs that are emerging in the technological and economic-social environment .
In this way, the scientific / technological interest of the Interuniversity Master in Industrial Mathematics is supported by three basic pillars:Expand the analytical capacity and knowledge of the students who will make up future research teams and professionals.
Provide specific skills regarding the design, construction and management of software specific to at least one of the industrial sectors.
Introduce students to research and development issues related to the subjects that make up this program.General CompetencesPossess knowledge that provides a basis or opportunity to be original in the development and / or application of ideas, often in a research context, knowing how to translate industrial needs in terms of R & D & I projects in the field of Industrial Mathematics .
Knowing how to apply the knowledge acquired and their ability to solve problems in new or little-known environments within broader contexts, including the ability to join multidisciplinary R & D & i teams in the business environment.
Being able to integrate knowledge to face the formulation of judgments based on information that, even if it is incomplete or limited, includes reflections on the social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge.
Know how to communicate the conclusions, together with the knowledge and ultimate reasons that support them, to specialized and non-specialized audiences in a clear and unambiguous way.
Possess the learning skills that allow them to continue studying in a way that will be largely self-directed or autonomous, and to be able to undertake and be able to successfully undertake doctoral studiesCurriculumSpecialties or itineraries:
The program includes the following specialties within the offer. In order to complete the studies, the student must complete at least one of the following specialties:Numerical Simulation Specialty
Specialty in Mathematical Modeling
Credit transfer and recognition:Recognition of credits: consists of the acceptance by a university of the credits that were obtained in an official education, in the same or in another university, and that are computed in other different teachings for the purposes of obtaining an official degree.
Transfer of credits: implies that in the official academic documents accrediting the successive teachings for each student, the totality of the credits obtained in official teachings taken previously, in the same or in another university, that have not led to the obtaining of an official title.SaidasGraduates from these master's degrees are in high demand, especially by the R & D & i departments of European multinational companies, especially in the Nordic countries, the United Kingdom and Central Europe.
Computational models and mathematical technologies are a vital R&D resource and an essential ingredient on the innovation technologies agenda. Today they represent essential ingredients to lower the price and accelerate the development of new products in many industrial sectors, from aerospace to financial, passing through traditional sectors such as the auxiliary automotive industry.
These aspects make it possible to form a living master's degree in Industrial Mathematics, capable of evolving in accordance with the demands of the European market, in such a way that students are trained to join professional and multidisciplinary research teams.
There is a constant demand for companies with double profiles in Engineering and Mathematics, this master's degree can serve to raise the professional level of those technical and mathematical engineers who study it, as well as to professionally retrain graduates from related areas such as physics, chemistry, computer science, higher engineering, etc.
