M2S Master degree

The Modeling and Simulation Master (M2S) has been created in 2004. The purpose of the program is to fulfill the growing demand of industry and laboratories for engineers and researchers able to use efficiently intensive numerical simulation to model complex physical processes or systems.

The program thus provides a working knowledge in three areas: physics modeling, mathematical and numerical analysis, and high performance computing. Particular emphasis is given to the modeling of complex phenomena in different areas: complex fluid flows, plasmas, astrophysics, to name a few.

A wide variety of courses and work-experience cases are offered, so that each student can tailor the course according to his or her background and personal ambitions.

Some of the courses of the former master MN2MC master, founded by CMLA in 2000, are now integrated in the M2S course, among which : Finite volumes, finite elements and finite differences, Simulation and numerical methods, High-frequency asymptotic methods. Approximately twenty students (23 in 2013) follow the master each year. The CMLA provides each year topics for internships and recruits students from this program.
