Mathematics and decision

Director: Marie-Christophette BLANCHET, Sylvie MIRA


Each engineer has to take decisions in its professional environment when solving scientific or technical problems, when optimizing industrial processes or when dealing with strategic management. Engineering approach consists in building a model with mathematical or managerial tools, to analyse its inherent risk level, and then in using it for decision-making.The specialization « Mathematics and Decision » (option MD) gives to students tools for apprehending either of those models. They will learn modelling, mathematical analysis, as well as risk analysis of complex problems arising in com-panies, finance, ecology, biology or physics.
