    IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT – ACADEMIC YEAR 2021/22

    This master program is planned to be taught On- Campus, in the academic year 2021/22.
    In the event that capacity limitations persist in the classrooms at the beginning of the course due to risks derived from the COVID-19 pandemic, students must follow the sessions that are determined synchronously online. The master program will set the most appropriate shift system, always ensuring the maximum presence of all its students.
    It is recommended to have a portable computer equipment for the follow-up of those training activities that are determined. This equipment is essential for carrying out practices in virtual environments in university classrooms that do not have computer stations.
    International students who prove difficulties or delays in obtaining their visas and entering Spain, may request remote teaching until they may join the classes on-campus.

    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.
