Master in Applied Mathematics, Statistics

M2 Statistics and Risks in engineering


In 2014, a programm in Engineering Mathematics (GM) at INSA Rennes was created with a main focus of training on mathematical modeling for risk management. Therefore, there was an opportunity to propose a new training offer within the Master's degree "Applied Mathematics, Statistics". This master propose 6 options in M2 of which one, entitled "Statistics and Risk in Engineering", is carried by the INSA Rennes.

This program is largely based on five compulsory scientific modules proposed in the last year of Engineering Mathematical Engineering from INSA Rennes and four scientific modules (compulsory choice of two modules out of four) proposed in the option "Data Science". In addition, it includes two compulsory modules of humanities (English, management course) of the INSA engineering training offer.

The students of this course will benefit from the strong involvement of the Mathematical Engineering program with companies.

This M2 option aims at training statisticians in companies, public organizations, or research laboratories whose mission is to answer the problems of data engineering and complex systems.


  • 1st year Master in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics
  • 2nd year Magistere in Mathematics or Applied Mathematics
  • 4th year INSA engineering studies in Mathematical Engineering
  • equivalent diploma obtained in France or abroad

Level required : very good level in Mathematics (probability, statistics) and 60 ECTS credits at M1 level. Dispensation of M1 can be given after a fourth year in a graduate engineering school (ENSAI, ENSIMAG, etc.).



Application files should be sent to the secretary of the Master degree by June 29th :

20 avenue des Buttes des Coësmes CS 70839
35708 Rennes Cedex 7

Or by e-mail to:

NB : There is no M1 at INSA Rennes and thus applications are only received at an M2 level. Decisions on acceptance are made after examination of the candidate's application file (beginning of July). > Registration
