Programme details

What will you learn?

The curriculum is designed to provide core competencies in:

  • Mathematical modelling, aimed at finding the most suitable mathematical model to describe applicative problems and analyse their solutions from both a qualitative and a quantitative point of view;
  • Numerical simulation, for the application of the latest scientific computation methods to intractable problems;
  • Probability and statistics, applied to solving non-deterministic problems, i.e. managing and interpreting experimental data with a strong component of uncertainty and variability;
  • Engineering, for the acquisition of broad engineering skills to be appliedto various fields and problems (engineering, industrial and information).

After taking the core courses, you will be able to choose between two specialist tracks: Mathematical modelling and numerical simulationb and Statistical and optimization methods.

At the end of the programme, you will take a final examinationbased on the preparation of an original thesis project, possibly carried out in a Polito department or laboratory or atan external company.

How will you learn it?

The Master’s degree programme is taught both in Italian and in English.

You will take part in face-to-face lectures, practical classes in the classroom or in the computer lab with the use of software. You will also work on specific projects - individually or in small groups – and on business case studies.
