Motivated by the idea that applied mathematics plays an important role in advancing science and technology in industry, the UC3M offers an interdisciplinary Master Program specializing in Mathematics in Industry. This program is co-sponsored by the:

  • Department of Materials Science and Enginnering and Chemical Engineering
  • Department of Thermal and Fluids Engineering
  • Department of Continuum Mechanics and Structural Analysis
  • Department of Physics

The main objective of this Master is to train mathematicians, engineers and applied scientists to use mathematical models, understanding and computational solutions in industry. It covers courses related to modeling of technical subjects as encountered in material engineering, fluid and solid mechanics, bioengineering, etc. We foster the use of mathematical models and computational methodologies needed in these various application areas, and build cooperation between mathematics and the worlds of industry and technology.

These sectors are looking for experts trained in quantitative modeling and computational training to tackle problems arising in engineering and industry. Graduates of the Master in Industrial Mathematics are uniquely positioned to meet these needs and hence are valued by high-tech industries for employment.

All students in this Master Program will gain valuable work experience through real-world research projects.

Course Content

Industrial mathematics is the application of mathematical methods to the solution of problems in industry. It draws on tools from applied mathematics, computer science, statistics, and engineering. It emphasizes hands-on modeling of practical situations and teamwork. This official master follows the normative of the ECMI (European Consortium for Mathematics in Industry).

The program requires completion of 120 ECTS credits. Four quarters are needed to complete these credits. During the first three quarters students must fulfill 15 courses with 90 ECTS credits in total. In these courses students become familiar with subjects relating to techno-mathematical disciplines. The fourth quarter is a Master's Project of 30 ECTS credits involving a real-world industrial problem .

The program has five major specializations:

• Modeling and numerical simulations

• Fluid dynamics

• Nanoscience

• Mechanics

• Inverse problems and imaging

Double degrees

The program offers students the opportunity to study it at two universities and to obtain a double degree.

After completing the first academic year at Carlos III, a second academic year (60 ECTS credits) attended at the University of Milan (Italy) entitles the student to also achieve a Master Degree at this University. We are currently working on similar agreements with other European universities.

PhD Program

This master allows the access to several Ph.D. Programmes, which have been awarded with the Quality distinction by the Spanish Ministry of Education and Culture. The specific prerequisites are detailed in the normative of each Ph.D. Programme.

Requirements for Industrial Mathematics

The Master's Admission Comitee will be in charge of admissions. The admission to the Double Master Degrees will be carried out according the existing agreements and the number of available openings.

To apply to the ECMI Master in Industrial Mathematics, the following documents must be provided:

  • Application form
  • Two letters of presentation
  • Official academic transcripts
  • Curriculum vitae
  • A brief statement of purpose
  • Any other relevant information

After being admitted, official academic transcript should be legalized in Spain as soon as possible by diplomatic procedures and/or The Hague Convention Apostille, except when these documents are expedited by the authorities of member states of the European Union, or by signatory countries of the European Economic Space. Every document must be accompanied by its official translation to Spanish.

Work Experience for Industrial Mathematics

No work experience is required.
