During my first-year master studies, I followed online courses of numerical optimization and PDEs given by teachers at the University of Limoges. This was my first approach to applied mathematics, since my bachelor degree is in pure mathematics. The following academic year, 2011-2012, I enrolled in the Master ACSYON. Here I could apply my theoretical knowledge to solve problems in technology, physics and engineering. At the end of the master, I went to Germany to do an internship at the University of Duisburg-Essen. The training offered by the Master ACSYON is diverse, rich and complete. It provides effective tools in numerical computation and computer algebra for solving scientific problems. Since September 2012 I am a PhD student at the University of Limoges, with a doctoral contract that includes teaching duties. My research work is done at the XLIM laboratory under the supervision of prof. Barkatou. Moreover, I teach at the Department of Mathematics. I am happy with my choice and I definitely encourage prospective students to apply for the Master ACSYON.
