    Progress in the sciences and technologies involved in the new digital era, such as cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, or data analysis, but also in other important contexts, from biomedicine to finance, requires the correct application of mathematical knowledge, both theoretical and practical.

    There is little doubt that Mathematics is a corner stone of STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), key to sustained growth of technologically advanced countries, whose economies require training of such type of professionals. Specifically, the current job market seeks mixed profiles which, being specialized, also feature knowledge from different areas enabling fast adaptation to change.

    The Master’s Degree in Computational and Applied Mathematics offered by Universidad Carlos III de Madrid responds to such a demand, by emphasizing a double, computational and mathematical, approach to solving realistic problems, offering multidisciplinar education to holders of STEM Bachelor degrees which, from a solid basic training, is oriented towards the development of quantitative and computational methods which can be applied to a wide spectrum of disciplines.

    The main goal is to provide the students with sufficient analytical and numerical capacities and intellectual rigor, which allow them to tackle realistic problems in an ever-changing environment. The necessary mathematical and computational foundations will be provided that enable performance of cutting-edge basic research, either in the academic domain (with the possibility to join the Ph.D. program of the Mathematics Department), or else working in innovative companies within the technology sector in an ample sense.
