Program Description

The URV-UOC online Master's Degree in Computational Engineering and Mathematics offers interdisciplinary training in engineering and applied sciences. This program includes cutting-edge topics such as computer modeling and simulation, numerical methods, parallel and distributed computing, knowledge representation, networks and graphs, and applied optimization.

The aim of the degree is to prepare students for R&D positions in industry, research centers, and universities. It is intended for graduates with various scientific and technical qualifications (computer engineering, mathematics, telecommunications engineering, industrial engineering, statistics, physics, etc.).

As the program’s lecturers are active researchers in the fields they teach, they can help students to initiate research careers in computer engineering and mathematics.

Participating universities

  • Universitat Rovira I Virgili (coordinating university)
  • Universitat Oberta de Catalunya
