Erasmus Mundus MSc course in MathMods (Mathematical Modelling in Engineering: Theory, Numerics, Applications)
Several Erasmus Mundus scholarships are offered to both European and non-European students. These scholarships amount to a maximum of EUR 48,000.00 to cover two-year expenses and are granted to the most promising applicants. There are scholarships dedicated to applicants from Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Serbia, Turkey.

- Autonomous University of Barcelona in Catalonia (UAB),
- University of Hamburg in Germany (UHH),
- Gdansk University of Technology in Poland (GUT),
- University of Nice - Sophia Antipolis in France (UNSA).
The MathMods Master’s degree course will be given in four semesters. Each semester will total 30 ECTS credits. Mobility scheme will provide for at least two locations. The first year will be common for all students. This will guarantee an equal knowledge platform for all of them. The second year will be divided into five tracks, which reflect the partners’ field of excellence. Students will spend their fourth semester on preparing their Master’s Thesis.
First semester: Theory (UAQ)
Second semester: Numerics (at either UNSA or UHH)
Third semester: Applications (UAB / UHH / UAQ / GUT / UNSA)
- UAQ: Mathematical models in life sciences
- UAQ: Modelling and simulation of electronic devices.
- UAB: Stochastic modelling and optimization.
- GUT: Advanced computational methods in material science.
- UHH: Modelling, simulation, and optimization of complex systems.
- UNSA: Mathematical modelling applications to biology and finance.
Fourth semester: Thesis (UAB / UHH / UAQ / GUT / UNSA)
The language of the whole course will be exclusively English at each of the five universities. Students will also have to attend a local language course during the semester they are spending in each university partner.
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.
