Nowadays, in order to make innovations in an advanced scientific and technological context, it is mandatory to master the most advanced concepts and methodologies for complex systems. This is why we have set up the Physics of Complex Systems programme at Politecnico di Torino, with two parallel educational tracks, which aims to offer the best techniques needed to attack interdisciplinary problems.

The Physics of Complex Systems programme at Politecnico di Torino is organized in two parallel educational tracks, sharing the same motivations, goals and structure, but with different features: 

International track

  • based at prestigious sites in Italy (including Politecnico di Torino) and in France
  • only a limited number of students admitted
  • students obtain a double Master of Science degree (Italian Laurea Magistrale & French M2)
  • all courses given in English

National track 

  • entirely based at Politecnico di Torino
  • no limitation on the number of admitted students
  • students obtain a Master of Science degree (Laurea Magistrale)
  • most courses given in English, some courses in Italian (one semester in common with the International track)

Career opportunities

Graduates from this master program will be experts in modeling and simulation of complex systems. They can look forward to careers as researchers in development labs or computing centers, senior software engineers, biological physicists, financial analysts and more. 

Thanks to their strong methodological skills, they will also profit of new career opportunities offered by the most advanced companies and research institutes operating in multidisciplinary contexts. 

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Numerical methods and simulation techniques 
  • Probability and Information Theory
  • Ecology and Evolution
