    More information

    The PNGS-M&CS Graduate School is designed as a high-level international master’s and doctoral curriculum, built upon three local masters: Mathematics, Computer Science, Engineering and Innovation in Images and Networks. Students enrolled in this graduate school have the opportunity to attend classes from different masters, supplemented by specific classes.

    Three research laboratories of the Sorbonne Paris Nord University actively participate in this graduate school: LAGA, the laboratory of mathematics, LIPN, the laboratory of computer science, L2TI, the laboratory for visual information and network analysis and processing. These laboratories form the MathSTIC Research Federation that supports and encourages their interdisciplinary research, and gathers more than 170 professors and full-time researchers. The interactions and complementarity of mathematics and computer science are highlighted in the graduate school to promote interdisciplinary teaching and research. Students of the PNGS-M&CS school will be in close contact with current research through internships within the partner laboratories, and participation in seminars and conferences organized locally, doing short internships in the laboratories, and working on open problems.

    After their second year of master studies, students continuing with PhD studies within the PNGS-M&CS will join the Galileo Doctoral School.

    Theses grants are open to both French and international students of any citizenship. The selection is based solely on criteria of academic excellence and motivation. Lectures and/or documents are provided in English, and students must have a sufficient proficiency in English to follow.Non French speaking students are strongly advised to attend French courses.

    The student awarded a scholarship will receive a monthly grant up to 1000€ at maximum: 600€/month + a housing complement of 400€/month upon justification (rental lease).

    Students from abroad will have preferred access to student housing facilities (CROUS), and will be reimbursed a return trip from their home country to Paris (economic fares only).

    The PNGS-M&CS graduate school will help the students in the administrative procedures related to moving to France and studying (applying for a visa, finding housing, insurance, banking, (pre-)registering into the master, etc).

    The PNGS-M&CS graduate school will also offer pedagogical and scientific support: each student will have a tutor from one of the participating laboratories, will have regular contacts with the head of the master and the graduate school, will participate in specific meeting for sharing information, and will be advised in his/her search for internships or advisers. Specific activities (welcome day, cultural activities, seminars) targeted at PNGS-M&CS students of all level of studies aim at easing the development of a social network.
