Mathematical Engineering Specialization (M2)

The aim of this specialization is to train advanced applied mathematicians with, in addition to a solid knowledge of mathematics, a true mastery of IT. Graduates of this degree find work in production or services companies. 


Understanding and mastery of advanced mathematical tools and methods. 


Mathematics, finance, probabilities, numerical analysis


Career opportunities are to be found principally with companies, in either research and development or in production. Graduates are qualified for any of the mathematical applications, as the entire field of applied mathematics is covered in the course (numerical analysis, scientific and mechanical calculations, probabilities and statistics, mathematical finance).


The specialization is divided into 2 programs (themes) :

  • Mathematics in the company:

this program trains mathematical engineers capable of modeling various phenomena and of developing and understanding new methods of computer simulation.

  • Financial engineering and random models:

this course teaches the evaluation and quantitative management of random risks, both in terms of stochastic analysis and of statistical and numerical processing. The main employment opportunities are in banks, insurance companies and computer services companies.


Well-targeted public

Students who have completed their M1 majoring in mathematics, with basic training in applied mathematics.



Solid mathematics background, with at least initial training in applied mathematics. Practical knowledge of basic IT tools (notably programming language) is required.
