Aims: The doctoral degree in Mathematics aims to have a general character. In this way, it will provide quality research formation in all the areas of specialization of mathematics (both theory and practice). The main goal is that graduates have a specialized level of training so that they can develop a research career in the field of Mathematics both in academic institutions and research centres for development and innovation within an industrial and technological environment. The importance of the lines of research of the doctorate programme is supported by the scientific productivity of the responsible groups of research in terms of six-year research periods, direction of doctoral dissertations, publications in journals of medium/high scientific value (listed in the JCR) and competitive researching projects. The doctorate aspires to become a referent for the training of future Mathematics researchers in the Valencian Community thanks to the human potential and the available resources of the program.


This is a joint doctorate degree of the Universitat Politècnica de València and the Universitat de València. The students to which this program is targeted are graduates in Mathematics, Statistics, Physics, any other Experimental Sciences and any Superior Engineering. It aspires to become a referent for the training of future Mathematics researchers in the Valencian Community. The recommended student profiles are post-graduates having the Master’s degree in Mathematics Research (UV-UPV).


This programme has its precedent in the Official Post-graduate Programme in Mathematics (adapted to the RD 56/2005 of 21 January, which regulates post-graduate official university studies). It included a Master’s and a Doctoral degree, and was distinguished with the Quality Mention of the Ministry of Education and Science, which was renewed from the 2008/2009 to the 2010/2011 academic years. This post-graduate programme was created by merging the 3rd Cycle Mathematics Interdepartmental Programme of the la Universitat de València (with the collaboration of the departments of Algebra, Mathematical Analysis, Geometry and Topology, and Applied Mathematics) and the doctoral programme of Multidisciplinary Mathematics of the Universitat Politècnica de València (with the academic structure responsible of the Department of Applied Mathematics), both courses having a special mention. The Doctoral Programme in Mathematics has been awarded the Mention of Excellency of the Ministry of Education for the 2011-2012, 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 courses. Only 14 doctoral degrees in mathematics in Spain have received this mention (Resolution 6th October 2011, of the General Secretary of Universities, BOE 20th October 2011).
