The Master Degree on Applied Mathematics to Engineering and Finance, School of Engineering, Polytechnic of Porto
The Master on Applied Mathematics to Engineering and Finance of the School of Engineering of the Polytechnic of Porto, Portugal, started its first edition in the scholar year of 2012/2013. This course is divided into four semesters (two scholar years). It emerged in an engineering school that has a strong tradition of dialog and collaboration with industry and business partners. In the second year, students must attend the subject of Dissertation/Project/Internship. This subject may be developed in a business or industrial environment. We will present some successful stories on applying this methodology in the above-mentioned master course, showing the benefits and the difficulties that arise from the collaboration with industry and business partners.
