About the Program

Complex systems with a technological, biological or socio-economic background determine our everyday life. The challenge of modeling these complex systems mathematically demands the following prototypic profile of an "expert mastering a repertoire of modern mathematical and computer based methods for modeling, simulating and optimizing complex systems and knowing how to combine those methods for solving real-world problems".
The term expert is understood in the sense of generalist and not a specialist, since this program aims at teaching a broad spectrum of modern methods.

The two-years English-taught master program "Mathematical Modeling of Complex Systems" focuses on advanced techniques of modeling, simulation and optimization. A substantial set of elective courses allows concentration on areas of individual interest. A mobility window enables the students to study abroad and gain scientific and cultural experience at international partner universities. This program uses English as medium of instruction since its graduates will enter a highly globalized work and research community. Besides that, the participation and enrollment of international candidates is explicitly welcomed.

Application oriented, interdisciplinary seminars link the theoretical basics and concepts of modeling and simulation. Students work in small teams to solve real world problems. This teamwork reflects typical work in applied sciences and corresponds to our paradigm of an "expert mastering a repertoire of methods to solve problems".

https://www.uni-koblenz-landau.de/de/koblenz/fb3/mathe/studium/mmcs/

Aims/Career Perspectives

The Master degree in Mathematical Modeling of Complex Systems is to give those possessing extended skills in Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science in theory, experiment and practical application. These skills are complemented with further knowledge in additional topics, individually selected by each student. The degree entitles its holder to exercise professional work in the field of Applied Mathematics and/or Mathematical Modeling in science or industry or to pursue a PhD program in related fields.

Program Structure

The first three terms of the two-years master „Mathematical Modeling of Complex Systems“ consist of core courses in Applied Mathematics and Applied Physics. Elective courses in Applied Mathematics, Applied Physics and Computer Sciences allow each student to set its individual focus. Active use of the gained knowledge and its application to the solution of real-world problems is taught and practiced in a project seminar. This project seminar can be carried out in a three-month period at a research institution, enterprise or at university. The master thesis in the last term and dealing with modeling and simulating a real-world problem, shows the student’s ability to perform independent research work.
The core and elective courses typically include a written or oral exam, the project seminar is graded based an oral presentation and written report of the project results.

Our Professional Doctorate in Clinical Research (DClinRes) has been designed to meet the challenge of providing high quality clinical research training for Allied Health Professionals (AHPs), including those in leadership roles. Read more
Our Professional Doctorate in Clinical Research (DClinRes) has been designed to meet the challenge of providing high quality clinical research training for Allied Health Professionals (AHPs), including those in leadership roles. It is a unique collaboration between Clinical Education Development and Research ( CEDAR, http://cedar.exeter.ac.uk/programmes/), Psychology and the University of Exeter Medical School.

Delivered by leading academics and practitioners, the programme aims to educate Allied Health Professionals to shift the major focus of their research activities from a tradition characterised by work which is predominantly descriptive, cross-sectional and introspective, to one which is translational, experimental, longitudinal, generalisable and implementation focussed.

The programme includes advanced training in clinical research leadership skills and organisational practice, and is underpinned by the Medical Research Council’s mixed methods Complex Interventions Research Framework. The Doctorate offers participants the opportunity to complete a Service Related Research Project linked to their area of practice allowing them to evaluate their local clinical service. In addition, participants undertake a Major Clinical Research Project related to their area of practice and aligned with the strategic aims within their local service and organisation.

The programme is based on the latest guidance for research which investigates how to develop and determine the components, efficacy, effectiveness, applicability and translational utility of complex healthcare interventions for complex interventions in medicine. It integrates investigative methods for complex interventions through a mixed methodological process of development, feasibility/piloting, evaluation and implementation.

Responding to a challenge

Our Doctorate in Clinical Research has been developed in response to a need, identified by training commissioners and professional organisations, for specific skills training within this area of the healthcare workforce.

Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) such as nurses, physiotherapists, psychologists, radiographers and occupational therapists have a critical role to play in meeting health and social care challenges at the fore of global health concerns.
These include an
• aging population,
• chronic diseases,
• and new endemics

AHPs engage in an ever widening range of activities, many of which are highly complex and take place in multiple care environments including acute medicine, chronic care facilities, community and residential care homes. Example activities include patient education programmes, the coordination and delivery of packages of psychosocial care, and support for patient self-care.

Changes in healthcare organisation internationally (e.g. short hospital periods and growing responsibility for patient self-care) are placing more healthcare in the hands of AHPs, increasing the scope and the overall need for an underpinning evidence base.

The relevance of a Complex Interventions Research Framework

The care provided by AHPs to patients is an increasingly complicated activity and can be seen as the quintessential ‘complex intervention’ – defined as an activity that contains a number of component parts with the potential for interactions between them which, when applied to the intended target population, produces a range of possible and variable outcomes (Medical Research Council, 2008).

Complex interventions are widespread throughout all of health and social care, from the apparently simple example of pharmacological treatment with its combination of biochemical, social and psychological factors influencing patient concordance and physiological response, to more obviously complex educational or psychological interventions where a multi-layered set of dynamic features have great bearing on ultimate effectiveness.

Our programmes are underpinned by the Medical Research Council’s mixed methods Complex Interventions Research Framework, which emphasises our commitment to applied research in a healthcare context.

Programme structure

Our Doctorate in Clinical Research is run part-time over four years. The taught component of the programme has been re-structured to better enable both national and international attendance. The course commences with a 5 day block of teaching in February, with the remaining pre-thesis teaching components taking place over the next 18 months in smaller block delivery. Please see the website for up to date information at http://cedar.exeter.ac.uk/programmes/dclinres/structure/.

What do Facebook, the financial system, Internet or the brain have in common?

All are connected in a network. From the underlying skeleton of social relations, the interdependent evolution of our financial system, to the emergent collective computation in the brain, most of the complex systems that appear in society, technology, and nature are ultimately characterised by a nontrivial pattern of inter-relations. This underlying architecture is in turn shaping how information diffuses and spreads, how resilient the system is against attacks or perturbations, or how complex patterns emerge at the systemic level from the aggregation of seemingly simple individuals.

Our MSc in Network Science will provide a thorough grounding in the core principles of modelling and analysis of complex and networked systems, along with the principal analytical and numerical methodologies. This will open to students a host of career opportunities in systems and networks modelling industries, spanning the IT, financial, and biomedical sectors, that are now requiring such specialist knowledge and skills.

Network Science is a very active and rapidly evolving research field with high societal impact, which stands at the crossroads of graph theory, complexity and data analysis. Addressing the description and modelling of the architecture and dynamics of complex systems -systems composed by many interacting units that show collective behaviour- it stands as a new kind of science to cope with some of the most challenging endeavours we face today, in an ever increasingly more connected society.
Its impact and applications outside academia pervades technological sectors such as communications and infrastructures (Internet, transportation networks, energy networks, urban mobility), biostatistics and network biology (brain modelling, protein interaction networks, postgenomic era), public health (epidemic spreading models), marketing and IT (social media, data analytics) to cite a few. This specialist masters programme aims at providing graduate students and professionals with a rigorous training in the underlying mathematical concepts, the analysis and modelling of complex networks and networked systems, complemented with training in computing, numerical simulations and massive data analysis. It is aimed towards students whose undergraduate degree is in mathematics or a cognate discipline who wish to enter a career involving analysis and optimisation of diverse kinds of networks, networked dynamics and models.

Career prospects

The MSc in Software Engineering aims to meet the significant demand for graduates with a good knowledge of computing. This demand arises from consultancies, software houses, major software users such as banks, large manufacturers, retailers, and the public services, defence, aerospace and telecommunications companies.

Typical entrants to the course have a degree in an engineering or scientific discipline, and wish to either move into the software engineering field or to the development of software for their current field. Entrants must have previous exposure to computing, especially to programming (particularly in Java or C#) and relational databases (from either academic or professional experience).

From this base, the course provides solid technical coverage of advanced software development, including such widely used languages as C++, Java, UML and XML for which demand is particularly high. The course is therefore quite demanding; its success in providing advanced academic education along these lines is evident from the fact that recent graduates of the course are currently employed in a wide spectrum of organisations.

Of course, the employment value of a master's degree is not just short term. Although on-the-job training and experience as well as technology specific skills are valuable, they can be rather narrow and difficult to validate, and to transfer. The structure of this course ensures that there is a strong balance between the development of particular skills and a solid education in the enduring principles and concepts that underlie complex software system development.

SAP Certification - in parallel to your degree you will be able to register for a SAP TERP10 Certification course at a substantial discount, thus obtaining an additional, much sought-after qualification

This module is designed for health or social care-professionals working with people with severe and enduring mental health difficulties that have so-called “complex” care needs.

This module can help further develop your therapy skills with a focus on working with people with a diagnosis of psychosis and personality disorder. It draws upon a range of psychological therapies, including recent innovations in strengths-based cognitive behavioural therapy and ‘third wave’ or ‘contextual’ psychotherapeutic practice, acceptance and commitment therapy, schema therapy, mindfulness and principles of positive psychology.

Why Bradford?

The key to what differentiates the University of Bradford offer for specialist skills and post-registration development (SSPRD) in Mental Health practice is flexibility and quality. Bradford also seeks to be responsive and innovative in the development and delivery of its SSPRD courses to meet the continually changing demands of clinical practitioners. We now offer, for example, a new module in Aspects of Mental Health Care and Psychological Wellbeing for Health Professionals. This is specifically for health care professionals not from a mental health background to enhance their understanding of working with people’s mental health difficulties to develop and bring those skills to your clinical area.

The very latest research, policy, guidelines and best-practice are synthesized in the delivery of these courses by highly experienced clinical-academics.

For those practitioners with a firm mental health foundation we offer a postgraduate certificate in cognitive behavioural therapies in our Professional Healthcare Practice programme, co-delivered by clinicians who are the lead in their clinical area and well versed in the complexities of integrating psychological approaches into nursing practice.

Our learning materials are further informed by the Scottish Recovery Network and NHS Education for Scotland that have been at the forefront of developing this kind of clinical practice.

At the Faculty of Health Studies, University of Bradford, you can choose to study for individual modules, a named award or build module credits through the SSPRD Framework for Flexible Learning to achieve an award relevant to your professional needs.
The Framework for Flexible Learning in Health and Social Care is a Faculty-wide academic structure for Specialist Skills and Post-Registration Development. It offers students increased flexibility and choice in the modules and courses that can be undertaken and it is also responsive to employer needs. The flexibility also allows you to move from one award to another if your career changes or you take time out from regular studying. Shared teaching and research expertise from across the Faculty is offered through interdisciplinary teaching across our core research modules.

The Faculty of Health Studies is regionally, nationally and internationally recognised for its teaching and research, and works with a number of healthcare partners to ensure clinical excellence.

Modules

This module is provided as part of this interdisciplinary Framework within the Faculty of Health Studies. The Framework enables students to create an individualised programme of study that will meet either their needs and/or the employers’ needs for a changing diverse workforce within a modern organisation.

The modules and academic awards are presented in areas representing employment practice or work based or clinical disciplines.

Whilst some students can build their own academic awards by choosing their own menu of module options, other students will opt for a named academic award. The Framework also provides the option for students to move from their chosen named award to another award if their job or personal circumstances change and they need to alter the focus of their studies. The majority of named awards also offer students, the option of choosing at least one module, sometimes more, from across the Faculty module catalogue enabling them to shape their award more specifically to their needs.
