Physics of Complex Systems

The CENTURI Master of Physics of Complex Systems (PCS) is a study track for the option FunPhys MASTER. It aims to teach « Physics for biology » to students with a background in general Physics.

The CENTURI Physics of Complex Systems courses are designed to introduce students to interdisciplinarity. Through the CENTURI Master courses, students will be taught important concepts to apprehend modern and fundamental biological questions.
The programme introduces and reinforces training in dynamical systems, complex fluids, complex networks and biomechanics. To know more about the full Master with the FunPhys option, click on the following link: https://sciences.univ-amu.fr/fr/formation/masters/master-physique/parcours-physique#section-14572

Students will study and conduct projects alongside biologists, mathematicians and computer scientists. Highly motivated students will be invited to join our labs during their internships to further their experience in interdisciplinarity.

The Master of Physics of Complex Systems is a part of the Master of Physics at Aix-Marseille University.


What for ?

The CENTURI Master of Physics of Complex Systems leads to an Aix-Marseille University degree. With this Master degree, graduates will be well qualified to apply to our PhD programme, join international research institutes, or join in the R&D department in private companies.
