This specialist masters programme aims at providing graduate students and professionals with a rigorous training in the mathematics applied to the analysis and modelling of complex networks and networked systems, complemented with training in computing, numerical simulations and massive data analysis. It is aimed at those with an undergraduate degree in mathematics or a related discipline such as physics, computer science or engineering who wish to enter a career involving analysis and optimisation of diverse networked systems.
The aim of this programme is to capitalise on the current relevance and impact of network theory locally and nationwide. This is a very active and rapidly evolving research field which stands at the crossroads of graph theory, complex systems and data analysis. It mainly addresses the mathematical description and modelling of the architecture and dynamics of complex systems (systems composed by many interacting units that show collective behaviour).
