ELEGIBILITY AND APPLICATION

ELIGIBILITY

The common requirements for all three programs are:

  • You must be enrolled in a Higher Education Institution at the time of application.
  • You must be at least 18 years old at the beginning of the program.
  • Your intended major should include components involving Mathematics, Statistics, Data Science or Computer Science.
  • You have successfully completed at least one Linear Algebra course and Differential, Integral and Multivariate Calculus courses by the start of the program.
  • Students whose first language is not English and are not currently enrolled at an English-speaking country higher education institution must comply with the language requirement.

Specific requirements:

  • If you are interested in the Semester in Mathematical Tools for Modeling, please check the specific requirements here.
  • If you are interested in the Semester in Mathematical Tools for Data Science, please check the specific requirements here.
  • If you are interested in the Summer Program, please check the specific requirements here.
  • Please note that there are also specific requirements for some courses.

*Data analysis, programming and computer modeling skills now form an essential part, not only of Mathematics and Computer Science, but of the “hard sciences” as a whole, from Physics to Biology to Chemistry. If you are an undergraduate student in a program that includes an advanced mathematics or programming component, take a look at the requirements for the semester and, if you think you qualify, we will be pleased to consider your application.

ENGLISH LANGUAGE REQUIREMENT

Students whose first language is not English and are not currently enrolled at an English-speaking country higher education institution must comply with the language requirement.

For this purpose, students may submit either:

  • Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) with a minimum score of 90 (TOEFL iBT) / 577 (TOEFL PBT) or
  • International English Language Testing System (IELTS) with a minimum score of 7 or
  • Cambridge First Certificate in English (FCE) with a minimum score of 170 or Grade B

Scores will be considered expired if the test was taken more than two years prior to submission of the application.

APPLICATION
  • Complete the online application form.
  • Provide two recommendation letters. At least one should be from an instructor of Mathematics with whom you have taken classes. The other can be from an instructor or academic advisor familiar with your academic record. 
  • Send a legible scanned copy of your current transcript (.pdf or .jpeg format) to coordinadormssg@cimat.mx
  • Send a legible scanned copy of your valid passport (.pdf or .jpeg format) to coordinadormssg@cimat.mx

IMPORTANT: You must verify that you fulfill your home institution requirements for studying abroad and make sure that you will be able to transfer your MSSG course credits upon your return.

Please note that incomplete files will not be accepted and that the submission of an application does not automatically result in the admission of the applicant.
