MathMods Joint MSc

What is MathMods

MathMods is a Joint Master Degree programme in Mathematical Modelling in Engineering run by four EU universities based in L'Aquila (Italy), Vienna (Austria), Hamburg (Germany) and Nice (France).

Mobility scheme

What makes MathMods so special is its peculiar mobility scheme. All MathMods students will be spending their graduate years in 2 or even 3 different EU countries. You'll be indeed studying in L'Aquila for your Semester1, then move to Austria or Germany for Semester2, and finally move again to 1 of our 4 partners for your Year2, depending on the mobility path you'll be assigned.

Funding opportunities

Since its establishement in 2008 MathMods was funded by the EU Commission firstly through the Erasmus Mundus programme action 1 A, and later through the Erasmus+ Key Action 1 programme, which will cover our programme until completion of the 2017 cohort (i.e. September 2019).

Joint Master's Degree

Students will be awarded a Joint or Double MSc Degree, depending on the place where they spent their Year2.
For instance, if you spend your Semester2 in Hamburg and your Year2 in L’Aquila, you will be awarded: a joint degree by L’Aquila and Hamburg.
