What I would highlight I am an Erasmus Mundus masters student in mathematical engineering (MATHMODS) at University of Gdansk (Poland), presently performing my Master Thesis in Institute of Computational Physics, Universität Stuttgart, Germany. for my MSc, I chose an interdisciplinary program with strong roots in engineering mathematics. The exposure to abstract mathematical subjects has provided me considerable background to explore topics like Classical Simulation, Computational Nanotechnology and DFT techniques during my master’s program. I have also acquired experimental experience in using scanning electron microscope, during my one semester stay in LMR lab (Tours-France). I have performed fatigue and fracture analysis of steel. As a Mechanical Engineer I posses commendable cleanroom experience, since I had to perform various experimental studies during my coursework. I am currently doing my Master Thesis in the field of Computational Biophysics in ICP.

Course programme

The FIRST YEAR is common for all students. This will guarantee an equal knowledge platform within the whole group of students. Students will spend their first semester (focused on Theory) at the University of L'Aquila (Italy) and their second semester (centred on Numerics) at the University of Hamburg (Germany).

The SECOND YEAR is dedicated to Applications - and is divided into five paths, which reflect each partner's field of excellence - as well as to the preparation of the Master's thesis. Students will spend their third and fourth semester at one of our 5 partner universities, according to the mobility scheme they will be assigned.

1st Semester: Theory (UAQ, Italy)
2nd Semester: Numerics (UHH, Germany)
3rd Semester: Applications 1 of our 5 partners
  • Mathematical models in life and social sciences (UAQ, Italy)
  • Stochastic modelling and optimization (UAB, Spain)
  • Advanced computational methods in material science (GUT, Poland)
  • Modelling and simulation of complex systems (UHH, Germany)
  • Mathematical modelling applications to finance (UNS, France)
4th Semester: Thesis (Same as 3rd Semester)
