The program is suited well for students with degrees in the Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences, who wish to pursue a career in Industry and are prepared to develop even stronger analytical and computational skills. Students working on industrial research and development capture the essentials of real situations through mathematical models and create or expand mathematical methods while finding solutions to complicated problems. They are often hired by engineering firms because they have the basic skills needed to solve state-of-the-art problems in industry. Often, they may be required to work in multidisciplinary teams to solve challenging problems.
An important component of the program is participation in workshops, seminars, and ECMI International Modeling Weeks and Summer Schools.
