Master of Mathematics   

Laboratory AGM: Analyse, Géométrie, Modélisation

Besides, a science made solely in view of applications is impossible; truths are fecund only if bound together. If we devote ourselves solely to those truths whence we expect an immediate result, the intermediary links are wanting and there will no longer be a chain.

H. Poincaré, The value of science


The master is a national diploma that can be obtained in two years after the bachelor degree. The Master of Mathematics of the University of Cergy-Pontoise is a high-level training whose purpose is threefold: to give a solid foundation in mathematics with an introduction to research, to train experts in industry, and to prepare for the Agrégation – a national competition for becoming teachers at high schools. The Master of Mathematics is attached to the Laboratory AGM – an internationally recognised research group with broad scientific interests.

The master has three directions – research, applications and teaching, which determine the main career opportunities. Students following the directions of research or applications can apply for a grant to pursue their PhD studies. However, most of the students of these two directions will head towards the labor market after their master. The teaching orientation aims to prepare for Agrégation (Option B: scientific computing) and is restricted essentially to French nationals.
