M2 Stochastic tools and Computational Methods for Decision (MSID)



This program offers advanced level courses in statistical analysis, decision computer science, computer modeling and associated computer tools.

Applications are open from December 2018 to April 2019 from https://aap-e2s.univ-pau.fr/siaap/pub/appel/view/5


This programme aims to provide strong skills in stochastic modeling and statistical methods for data analysis, jointly with the associated computer tools.

  • Courses are focusing on applications in the industry, especially in the areas of quality control and safety analysis, but also on applications in datamining and machine learning.

  • Courses are taught by academics but also by engineers

According to the excellency of students and their desire to go on doctoral studies, courses about « advanced statistics » and « advanced applied probability » can be offered.

Knowledge and skills

At the end of this program, the students in "MSID" will be able to:

  • Conduct an appropriate statistical analysis

  • Apply any classical statistical methods

  • Construct and analyse an experimentaldesign

  • Propose and analyze a stochastic model

  • Implement stochastic simulation methods

  • Manage databases
