A 2-year Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree on Mathematical Modelling and Simulation with interdisciplinary applications, with specific focus on Biomedical Sciences and Industrial Engineering, jointly offered by five EU Universities: University of L’Aquila, Vienna University of Technology, Hamburg University of Technology, Autonomous University of Barcelona, University of Cote d’Azur.


“InterMaths – Interdisciplinary Mathematics” is a 2-Year full-time Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree in Mathematical Modelling and Simulation with interdisciplinary applications, with a special focus on biomedical Sciences and industrial engineering. It is run by five European Universities:

  • University of L’Aquila (UAQ) - Coordinating Institution
  • Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH)
  • Vienna University of Technology (TUW)
  • Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB)
  • University of Cote d’Azur in Nice (UCA)

“InterMaths” prepares for a career in research as well as in private enterprises, in particular in industrial engineering, manufacturing, pharmaceutics, biomedical industry. Our study plans develop mathematical skills that are relevant to a broad range of interdisciplinary fields:

  • Mathematical modelling,
  • Scientific computing,
  • Control and optimization,
  • Stochastic modelling,
  • Image processing methods.

The “InterMaths” graduate is a professional scientist equipped with advanced and innovative skills in mathematical modelling and scientific computing, who’s able to translate challenging real-world problems into complex models, to solve them in a reasonable time and at reasonable cost, and to apply them in specific practical situations in a team with scientists coming from other disciplines.

InterMaths is directed to students with a wide range of previous Bachelor studies such as Engineering, Mathematics, Physics, Computer Science and the like.


InterMaths is an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree programme (one the Erasmus+ programmes funded by the European Commission), a prestigious, integrated, international study programme, jointly delivered by an international consortium of higher education institutions.

Fully covered via Erasmus Mundus (EMJMD) scholarships. Non-scholarship holders might be benefit from partial waiver, so they'll only be charged EUR 2,800. 


We offer 20 full scholarships through the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Programme (EMJMD) worth 49,000 EUR (maximum).

For the 2021 intake, in addition to the EMJMD scholarships detailed above,  we will also offer a so-called Consortium Scholarship to a (TBD) number of eligible students from the waiting list who won't be awarded an EMJMD scholarship.

The Consortium Scholarships will grant the students partial waiver of the participations costs, which will allow them to join our programme by paying a total of 2,800 EUR (700/semester) instead of 18,000 EUR.

Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
