General Information

The objectives of this PhD program are the excellence research on different topics regarding Applied Mathematics to different sciences and engineering. It combines different aspects, from modeling, the theoretical study of the mathematical problem posed, mainly by means of differential equations and statistical models, numerical analysis, statistical analysis, etc. to even reach the manufacture of prototypes. 


At UCLM we have a long tradition in the development of theoretical tools for the treatment of real problems and in the study of real problems by means of different mathematical techniques, and it is in this spirit that the doctoral theses in our doctoral program are developed. In short, we offer a doctoral program of scientific excellence and in areas of scientific and social relevance that enables doctoral students to address real-world problems with mathematical tools.

The annual enrolement cost depends on the aplicable fees, aprobed by the Regional Government in Castilla-La Mancha. Click here to know the corresponding to the current academic year.
