You’ll study interdisciplinary applied mathematics and modern scientific computing, with an emphasis on problem solving. You will gain an understanding of different disciplines and industrial problems. The course links mathematics with engineering, biology and other sciences, and gives students direct contact with industry.
You will develop an awareness of modern applications of mathematics in an interdisciplinary environment. You will get professional level training in mathematical methods, mathematical modelling, scientific computation and other applied techniques, combining both theory and applications.
The course specialises in interdisciplinary applications of mathematics, notably in industry and mathematical biology. You’ll have the opportunity to choose from a wide scope of interdisciplinary units, ranging from astrophysics over cryptography to computational chemistry.
You can choose to do a three month project which can be linked to industry or a six month work placement with a company. The placement route offers a chance to experience first-hand how mathematics can be applied in industry.
You will benefit from the close interactions that the department has with many industrial companies, who come and work with students and help to run projects.
Our graduates have gone on to further research in Lausanne, Berlin, Brussels, Frankfurt, and have taken up academic posts in Malaysia, Sweden, Germany, Canada, US and in the UK.
Recent employers of Bath graduates include British Aerospace, Network Rail, Pfizer, Barclays Capital and Powergen.
If you are interested in applying for one of our master's courses and you would like to find out more about your job prospects, then there is a webinar for you on Friday 24 November at 1pm GMT.
Join us from around the world without leaving your house.
During the webinar you will be able to find about:
• the current job market
• what our graduates go to on to do after their master's
• how the careers service and the Faculty's careers adviser can help you with finding a job. You will also have the opportunity to put your questions to staff during a live question and answer session.
- In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF), 88% of our research in all areas (Pure and Applied Mathematics, Statistics and Probability) was rated world leading/internationally excellent. The results of REF 2014 confirm the excellence of the research carried out in the Department of Mathematical Sciences.
- The most recent assessment of the quality of research being done in academic departments across the UK, (RAE 2008), confirms that our research activity is at the forefront of international excellence
- We have a fully-supported professional placement programme.
- The National Student Survey 2016 - 91% satisfaction with Mathematical Sciences.

This is an online delivery of the on campus degree which you can take flexibly part time whilst you work anywhere in the world. The degree comes from Aberdeen University and city in the heart of the European oil and gas industry where the university provides postgraduate degrees worldwide to international students in the oil and gas industry.
Ageing infrastructure from the golden days of the oil and gas and energy industry is now being identified for decommissioning. Some of it is in the North Sea but many other countries are increasingly realising that they need to decommission properly and effectively due to environmental regulation. Building a platform has provided a rapid and continuous learning process since the start of the energy industry but learning how to decommission a platform has now started a rapid learning experience about best practise methods across the supply chain and facilities available to deal with entire platforms and their various facilities are now an important concern.
The degree will cover all aspects of decommissioning process including engineering, legal, environmental regulation, business and project management risks and challenges across the oil and gas industry, You study the important aspects of offshore subsea systems, well plugging, offshore installations, project evaluating and economics, environment impact assessment process an regulation, and a group project in comparative assessment. You also look at process shutdown and disposal. This is a highly complex area due to the level of environmental contaminants and different types of facilities to take down.
There are many oil and gas companies now decommissioning in the North sea with the Brent Delta platform being a highly publicised example. You may be interested in reading about decommissioning from the Department of Business Energy and Industrial Strategy which gives you more information about the process, the companies involved and some examples of environmental statements and other useful information https://www.gov.uk/guidance/oil-and-gas-decommissioning-of-offshore-installations-and-pipelines
