Master Mathématiques et applications

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 first semester is divided in 2 tracks :

  • Modeling, Scientific Computing and  Image analysis (MSCI)
  • Data Science (DS)

The second semester is devoted to the master thesis project.

The course is labelled "Core AI" by MIAI.

Condition d'accès

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 1st yearor directly to second year.

  • Admission in MSIAM 1st year : anyone holding a 3rd year 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 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)

Public continuing education : You are in charge of continuing education :

  • if you resume your studies after 2 years of interruption of studies
  • or if you followed a formation under the regime formation continues one of the 2 preceding years
  • or if you are an employee, job seeker, self-employed

If you do not have the diploma required to integrate the training, you can undertake a validation of personal and professional achievements (VAPP)
