In the academic year 2022/23 the Master's Degree in Physics of Complex Systems that IFISC (UIB-CSIC) teaches at the University of the Balearic Islands will offer a completely renewed curriculum.
The Master's Degree in Physics of Complex Systems was created in 2012 with unique characteristics based on interdisciplinarity, modernity and rigor. More than one hundred students have since been trained in its classrooms, achieving high levels of excellence and satisfaction. Our postgraduate training is backed by the teaching and research experience of IFISC faculty members (half of them is UIB staff while the other half works for CSIC) and provides students with the necessary tools to tackle complex problems in a wide range of disciplines, built on a solid mathematical basis.
Last year the IFISC Faculty Council decided to renew the Master’s contents and competences. The next academic year will strengthen, within the block of core subjects, Data Science, Machine Learning and Information Theory, since these fields are consolidating within Complex Systems research and are increasingly important for complex science practitioners. On the other hand, the number of elective courses are increased, allowing students to specialize in the branch of Complex Systems science of their interest. The new program syllabus includes optional courses in Econophysics, Climate Dynamics or Ecology, disciplines that have recently gained much relevance, as shown by the 2021 Nobel Prize in Physics.
The pre-registration period for the Master's degree began on May 2 and will run until July 8 through the postgraduate portal of the University of the Balearic Islands. IFISC also offers mobility grants, one of which is sponsored by the Sicomoro Foundation.
