Coordinator:  Dario Martelli


The Master in Mathematical and physical methods for aviation sciences is a one year curriculum which aims to provide students with advanced education for professions in the specific field of the aviation sciences; this field requires a high level of qualification and it is characterized by a strong interaction between academic research and industrial issues. One of the purposes of the master is to introduce advanced mathematics and physics methodologies applied to the aviation domain to people with a solid knowledge in mathematics, physics, IT or engineering disciplines.

The emphasis of the course topics will be both theoretical and applied, providing the capability of discerning, combining and applying the most useful and modern methods available in mathematics and physics.

The Master is currently the only offer of this type in the north of Italy.

Why should I be willing to enroll to this master?

Aviation related industries are attractive workplaces, where people with different educational background cooperate to solve challenging problems. To work in such contexts is a great opportunity to use advanced mathematical and physical contents in a business environment and to do research out of the academy.

Whom is the Master's Degree aimed at?

The Master is aimed at highly motivated students who have obtained or are close to obtaining a master degree (laurea magistrale for students in italian universities) in mathematics, physics, engineering or information technology and who are interested in working in a challenging and exciting high technological industrial environment.

Students are expected to be oriented to develop critical capabilities and problem solving skills, to be interested in working in international and challenging contexts and to be able to teamwork.

At the end of the Master the students will have a high-level scientific competences and valuable technological knowledges.

They will be ready to be introduced in a business environment and develop a professional career with a strong interaction between academic research and industrial issues.

During the Master students will develop specific expertise in mathematical and physical topics, including analytical methods, advanced numerical methods, physics of fluids, data analysis, machine and deep learning. Courses in cybersecurity, basic lean management and (semi)automated certification will complete the preparation.

They will experience working in group, writing reports and projects and making a presentation.

At the end of the program the students will have transversal skills, as communication abilities, problem solving and a high attitude to learning and working in multidisciplinary environment.

How to

Prerequisites and eligibility

Applications are open to anyone holding or being close to obtaining an italian Master degree in one of the following classes:

  • LM17 Fisica
  • LM18 Informatica
  • LM40 Matematica
  • LM20 Ingegneria Aereospaziale Astronautica
  • LM25 Ingegneria dell’Automazione
  • LM27 Ingegneria delle Telecomunicazioni
  • LM29 Ingegneria Elettronica
  • LM32 Ingegneria Informatica
  • LM33 Ingegneria Meccanica
  • LM44 Modellistica matematico-fisica per l’ingegneria
  • LM58 Scienze dell'Universo

The possession of the access pass is required at the moment of matriculation to the course.

People possessing an international master degree can apply too; the evaluation committee will certify if the degree can be considered equivalent to the Italian one.

Information required to complete the application

Application follows the general rules of Università degli Studi di Torino, that you can find in the enrolment procedure. Please, notice that the preliminary steps to admission are registration at the university portal and submission of the application form. Matriculation is the last step, after passing the evaluation procedure.

When applying, you will be asked to upload:

  1. your CV (in Italian or English)
  2. your official grade transcript (in Italian or English), if you hold a MA or one-long cycle degree program, or

    2bis. a letter of your advisor with the expected month of graduation, if you do not hold a MA or one-long cycle degree programme
  1. your motivation letter (in Italian or English, approximately 3000 characters)

Admission to the Program of eligible candidates is subjected to an evaluation based on the curriculum vitae and the documentation provided by the candidates. The verification of the candidate's personal preparation will be supplemented by an interview.
The evaluation committee will formulate an eligibility judgement and establish a ranking which will be followed for enrollment.

The number of students admitted to the master is 8.

The programme consists of some courses,  an internship and a final examination.


The courses are divided in three groups:

Group 1 – Foundations

  • Analytical methods – 4 credits
  • Numerical methods – 3 credits
  • Physics of fluids – 3 credits

Group 2 – Core topics

  • Basic lean and six-sigma knowledge – 3 credits
  • Cybersecurity – 3 credits
  • Introduction to (semi)automated certification – 4 credits

Group 3 – Data analysis

  • Data analysis – 6 credits
  • Machine learning – 4 credits
  • Advanced machine learning – 3 credits
  • Advanced deep learning – 4 credits

Each credit corresponds to 25 hours of commitment of the student, 8 of which will be in the classroom.

Courses a.a. 2021/2022



Students are required to do an internship in the second part of the master. The duration of the internship is about 500 hours. At the end of the internship students will write a report of their activity.

Two students will do the internship in Avio Aero, four in Leonardo.

Final examination

Courses usually start in November.

Courses attendance is compulsory.

Students must attend at least the 70% of the lessons.

The tuition fees are 4500 euros per year.

The top six students in the ranking established by the evaluation commitee will have a scholarship as a total reimbursement of the tuition fees.
Depending on budget availability and based on the evaluation committee assessment, other students can have a scholarship (up to 3000 euros) as a partial reimbursement of the tuition fees.

Courses and seminars are usually scheduled in the period November - March. The rest of the academic year will be devoted to the internship.

The final examination is usually planned in september/october.

Classes will take place will take place at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Turin, via Carlo Alberto 10, Turin.
