Mastery of science with options for computing, applied mathematics


Program Description

The Master of Science with option to Computation or Applied Mathematics, is based on its two terminal areas, the student will have a thesis tutor appointed from the second semester to ensure a personalized attention that will guide you to organize, plan and develop your protocol , besides giving him the possibility to develop his abilities and generate his own needs to face the problematic of his line of research and that will develop in the seminars of investigation.

The student, together with his tutor, will be able to select the topics to complement his training in the chosen line. The tutor will also be able to recommend the mobility and the realization of stays of research at national level and of international preference for curricular courses and research activities that contribute to the quality of the research done by the student.

The Master's Degree is addressed to graduates in the areas of Computer Systems, Computer Science, Computer Science, Mathematics, Information Technology or related areas.

The graduates will be able to do research and participate in the generation of knowledge of the fields in Computing and Applied Mathematics; as well as to identify practical problems and reach the solution of the same applying the knowledge and skills acquired.

The research lines offered by the Master are:

  • Computing - Software Engineering.
  • Computation - Artificial Intelligence.
  • Applied Mathematics and Modeling.

General objective
