Industrial mathematics is the application of mathematical methods to the solution of problems in industry. It draws on tools from applied mathematics, computer science, statistics, and engineering. It emphasizes hands-on modeling of practical situations and teamwork. This official master follows the normative of the ECMI (European Consortium for Mathematics in Industry).
The program requires completion of 120 ECTS credits. Four quarters are needed to complete these credits. During the first three quarters students must fulfill 15 courses with 90 ECTS credits in total. In these courses students become familiar with subjects relating to techno-mathematical disciplines. The fourth quarter is a Master's Project of 30 ECTS credits involving a real-world industrial problem .
The program has five major specializations:
Modeling and numerical simulations
Inverse problems and imaging
List of courses
The program offers students the opportunity to study it at two universities and to obtain a double degree.
After completing the first academic year at Carlos III, a second academic year (60 ECTS credits) attended at the University of Milan (Italy) entitles the student to also achieve a Master Degree at this University. We are currently working on similar agreements with other European universities.
This master allows the access to several Ph.D. Programmes, which have been awarded with the Quality distinction by the Spanish Ministry of Education and Culture. The specific prerequisites are detailed in the normative of each Ph.D. Programme.
