This Master’s degree programme develops the necessary knowledge and expertise for mathematical engineering:

  •  the design, analysis and implementation of mathematical models for the engineering of the complex systems of the industrial sector and the elaboration of effective strategies to optimise their performance;
  • the implementation of theoretical and methodological tools in all areas of engineering sciences as well as in other fields such as economics, finance, environmental and life sciences.


Your profile


  • have solid knowledge of mathematics
  • are seeking an engineering programme with a focus on applied mathematics
  • want access to engineering jobs (in manufacturing and services companies) or to the areas of life sciences, environment or finance;
  • want to take advantage of the most recent research advances in your area of specialisation.
Your future job

Mathematical engineers are present in all industrial sectors: industrial chemistry, pharmaceutical and food industries, electronics and telecommunications, energy, metallurgy, aeronautics, civil engineering, mass distribution, banking or consulting services, nanotechnologies and medical technology.

They play a role in research and development, oversee production or management and work in marketing and sales (of high tech products).

We find them in departments of finance, computer science, training and quality control, in the public sector, higher education and in the Minister of equipment and transport (
