M2 Mathematics, Modeling and Simulation (MMS)




The program offers up-to-date knowledge in areas of applied mathematics related to modeling with partial differential equations.


This program aims to provide solid skills in applied mathematics (partial differential equations analysis, numerical analysis, scientific computing and high performance computing, optimization).

• Courses focus on applications in industrial problems, fluid mechanics, waves propagation, optimal design,...

• This program prepares students for leading positions in private and public organisations in research and development departments.

Knowledge and skills

At the end of this program, the students in "Mathematics, Modeling and Simulation Master's degree" will be able to:


  • Elaborate and analyze mathematical models arising from physics, biology, geology, industry,

  • Elaborate and analyze numerical schemes,

  • Develop, adapt and use industrial or research numerical simulation softwares.
