Master Mathématiques et applications

Parcours Master of Science in Industrial and Applied Mathematics (MSIAM)

Présentation et objectifs

Currently, applied mathematics is an area that provides many job opportunities, in industry and in the academic world. There is a great demand for mathematical engineers on topics such as scientific computation, big data analysis, imaging and computer graphics, with applications in many fields such as physics, medicine, biology, engineering, finance, environmental sciences.

The Master of Science in Industrial and Applied Mathematics (MSIAM) offers a large spectrum of courses, covering areas where the research in applied math in Grenoble is at the best level. Our graduates are trained to become experts and leaders in scientific and technological projects where mathematical modeling and computing issues are central, in industry or research. A large and distinguished graduate Faculty participate in the program, bringing their expertise in a wide range of areas of mathematics including applied analysis, numerical analysis and scientific computing, probability theory and statistics, computational graphics, image analysis and processing, and applied geometry.

The academic program is a two-year Master program (120 ECTS), fully taught in English. It combines three semesters of courses and laboratory work (90 ECTS) with a six-month individual research project (30 ECTS).

The first year is composed of a common core which provides theoretical and practical grounds in probability and statistics, PDE and modelling, images and geometry as well as computer sciences, optimisation and cryptology.

In the second year, the third semester is essentially divided in 4 tracks:
- Modeling and Scientific Computing (MSC)
- Geometry, Image and CAD (GICAD)
- Statistics (STAT)
- Data Science (DS)
The fourth semester is devoted to the master thesis project.

Conditions d’admission

To be admitted to the program, candidates must have previously completed their undergraduate studies and been awarded a Bachelor degree in Mathematics or Applied Mathematics, or equivalent.

MSIAM is a two-years Master Degree. Students can apply to M1 (1st year) or directly to M2 (second year).

Admission in M1 (MSIAM 1st year):

  • Anyone holding a L3 or Bachelor Degree in mathematics or applied mathematics or an equivalent degree, interested in pursuing a high level mathematical education and motivated by the applications of mathematics. The minimum requirement is to have earned at least the equivalent of 180 ECTS credits.

Admission in M2 (MSIAM 2nd year):

  • Anyone holding a first year of master (60 ECTS credits) in mathematics or applied mathematics or an equivalent degree, interested in pursuing a high level mathematical education and motivated by the applications of mathematics. The minimum requirement is to have earned at least the equivalent of 240 ECTS credits.

Important notes:

  • Students from related backgrounds (physics, computer science, engineering,…) may also apply provided they possess outstanding mathematical qualifications and are highly motivated by applications.
  • Eligibility : only individuals who have an excellent academic record will be considered. Applications from students from traditionally underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged.
  • Academic standing : Fellows must maintain full-time status in the Master’s program, and must be engaged in full-time coursework or research during the academic year (september 1st–July 31st).

Language requirements:

  • Students from countries where English language is not the primary language are required to provide evidence of Competence in English. The requirement is waived for applicants from English speaking countries as well as applicants whose previous degree is from a program taught in English. English scores required: TOEFL IBT 100 min / TOEIC 750 min / IELTS 6.5 min. This is equivalent to the CEFR CEFR level B2, although we will consider applicants with a B1 level and who have an excellent academic record.
  • An A2 level in French is recommended.

How to apply:
