Erasmus Mundus MathMods
MathMods is a two-year joint Master of Science (MSc) programme (120 ECTS) between 5 European universities, which aims to provide students with a cross cultural education while they get acquainted with both theory and applications of mathematical modelling in engineering.
Mathematical modelling lies at the heart of most current technological innovations and has become a fundamental tool in many fields of engineering. Essentially multidisciplinary in its applications, mathematical modelling and simulation is in its own right a key technology which is bound to increase its presence within efficient industries and business innovation departments. The proposed programme reflects this multidisciplinarity, drawing on the unifying mathematical aspects from the various and often separate engineering disciplines. This allows the development of an essentially unified methodological approach to modelling and simulation of real engineering challenges.
The MathMods Consortium is coordinated by:
University of L'Aquila in Italy (UAQ)
Autonomous University of Barcelona in Catalonia (UAB),
Gdansk University of Technology in Poland (GUT),
University of Hamburg in Germany (UHH),
University of Nice - Sophia Antipolis in France (UNS).
Scholarships should be considered as "full scholarships" covering all necessary costs of the student during his/her study period in Europe
Applicants must have obtained a recognized Bachelor's Degree (BS, BSc, SB, etc.) – or a degree at the level of a Bachelor's Degree, for instance its equivalent from a college, university, or technical school of high standing, or 180 ECTS credits in the European system – in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Physics, Engineering with a large background in Mathematics.
All applicants whose native language is not English are required to prove a satisfactory level of spoken and written English, certified by TOEFL (550 points), IELTS (6.0 points) or equivalent.
All applicants will have to submit the following mandatory documents through the online application form before the deadlines:
- electronic copy (.pdf) of your passport;
- electronic copy (.pdf) of your detailed curriculum vitae;
- electronic copy (.pdf) of your full academic transcript with records for each single attended course and with the list of courses to be attended to get your Bachelor's Degree;
- electronic copy (.pdf) of a file containing a description of the attended courses you consider relevant for your application, especially the courses related to Mathematics and Physics. Only use this template. As this is not a document usually issued by universities, applicants have to fill in that file by themselves as self-certification;
- electronic copy (.pdf) of an English certificate;
- two academic reference letters, to be submitted by two different referees only via our online Reference system (the link and the instructions can be found in the application form);
- for all the above documents, in case they are not written in English, please upload an official English translation, or a translation provided and signed by the Institution awarding the Bachelor's Degree and (if possible) by a native English speaker academic full Professor or by an academic full Professor in English language (with full contacts included);
- electronic copy (.pdf) of a letter of intent (also known as motivation letter), describing your interest in the subjects related to the proposed fields of study. The letter can be addressed to the MathMods Evaluation Committee. There is no particular template to follow, but you must not exceed one page - extra pages will not be evaluated.
