EU funding for international MSc course „Interdisciplinary Mathematics“
Since the winter term 2018/19, TU Wien together with Università degli Studi dell’Aquila (Italy), the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (Spain) offers MSc studies on „Mathematical Modelling in Engineering: Theory, Numerics, Applications“, which are taught in English. This interdisciplinary two-year MSc course combines Mathematics (in particular, PDE analysis, numerical mathematics, and mathematical programming) with its applications for the the natural sciences and engineering, e.g., computational fluid dynamics (at TU Wien), dynamical systems in the social sciences (at Università degli Studi dell’Aquila), or modelling and optimization (at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona). Scientific mobility is an inherent part of the curriculum: The first term is done at Università degli Studi dell’Aquila (Italy). The second term is done at TU Wien. The third and fourth term depend on the scientific interests of the participants and are done either in l'Aquila, in Barcelona, or at TU Wien. Details on the curriculum are found here.
Starting in the academic year 2021/22, this MSc course will be continued under the name „Interdisciplinary Mathematics“, and it will be funded by the European Union, in particular, providing stipends for the student members. By then, the University of Hamburg (Germany) as well as the University of Nice (France) will also be included as an option of the curriculum. At TU Wien, the MSc course is mainly taught by faculty of the Institute of Analysis and Scientific Computing with Prof. Anton ARNOLD being the local coordinator. Applications for these EU stipends will be accepted from December 2020 on.
