The Applied Mathematics Department aims to establish a close link between Mathematics and its scientific, technical and industrial applications. There is a wide variety of fields of application, such as continuous environment mechanics, applied physics, scientific calculation, systems analysis, signal and image processing, mathematics for finance, econometrics, statistics, etc.
The Department maintains close contact with industrialists and many scientific laboratories. The option placements organised by the Department generally take place in research centres in France and abroad; students thus have an opportunity to help solve some of the very latest problems. At the École, the Department has special links with École Polytechnique's Applied Mathematics Centre (CMAP).
