Description

The Complex Systems Modelling MSc is an innovative study programme that explores the latest research in the rapidly developing and exciting interdisciplinary field of cpmplex systems.

Modern societies rely on a broad range of infrastructures, institutions and technologies, and their complexities have grown dramatically in the recent past. Consequently, there is a rapidly expanding demand for expertise in complex systems modelling as a foundation for understanding, maintaining and further developing of such systems.

The programme offers you the choice to study either full or part-time. You must take a combination of required and optional modules totalling 180 credits to complete the course. If you are studying full-time, you will complete the course in one year, from September to September. If you are studying part-time, your programme will take two years to complete. You will study the required modules in the first year, and a further selection of required and optional modules including the complex systems modelling module in your second year.

You will study key natural and biomedical scientific topics as well as economic and social sciences. We also offer the opportunity to study an additional zero-credit module called foundations for complex systems modelling and cross-disciplinary approaches to non-equilibrium systems and is designed as a refresher module covering vital mathematics and physics skills.

Course purpose

For graduates in mathematics, or in other suitable scientific disciplines with a strong background in mathematics, who want to work in research and development in an academic or industrial environment. The programme aims to develop a knowledge and understanding of complex systems modelling and their uses, and to enable students to use mathematical techniques to quantify, predict and improve such systems.

Course format and assessment

Primarily written examinations, some with coursework element, in eight lecture modules, plus an oral presentation and assessed report on the research project.

Career destinations

Our graduates are highly sought after: the applicability of complex systems modelling to areas as diverse as biomedical, natural, economic and social sciences, results in a broad range of opportunities.

The MSc in Health Economics and Econometrics is ideal for new graduates hoping to pursue a career in health economics or for those currently working in the health care sector who wish to develop skills in health economics.  

This programme gives you the opportunity to follow a more econometrics based pathway underpinned by microeconomic theory, while taking the core modules required to study Health Economics (Economic Evaluation and Modelling for Health Care Decision Making). 

The programme is targeted at those with an undergraduate economics-based degree and a desire to obtain a technical training relevant for a career in which these skills can be applied to the health care sector nationally and internationally. With its blend of applied health economic modules and specialist economic modules, the MSc in Health Economics and Econometrics is ideal for individuals wishing to embark on a career as a health economist in industry, the health service or academia. This is an area identified as a priority for the health service and health economists with these skills are in short supply.

Course details

The purpose of this programme is to fully equipped you to utilise, analyse and interpret the big data sets that are increasingly available across health systems in addition to understanding these in the context of health and economic related issues and policy. This programme builds on the strength and experience of the Department of Economics and the Health Economics Unit in providing high quality Masters programmes.

The MSc in Health Economics and Econometrics is hosted by the Health Economics Unit in collaboration with the Department of Economics. This programme incorporates two core modules provided by the Department of Economics (Microeconomics, Econometrics) and four core modules from the MSc Health Economics and Health Policy Programme (Introduction to Health Economics, Economic Evaluation, Statistics II, Modelling for Health Economics) and one relevant policy based optional module.

This programme provides a contrast to the long-established MSc Health Economics and Health Policy programme by providing a greater focus on the underpinning advanced economic theory and econometrics for those students with excellent undergraduate degrees in economics. However it retains the provision of the key skills associated with the conduct of economic evaluation, modelling as well as an exposure to economic policy (expected in many health economic posts).

Learning and teaching

As a Birmingham student, you will be joining the academic elite and will have the privilege of learning from world-leading experts, as well as your peers. From the outset you will be encouraged to become an independent and self-motivated learner. We want you to be challenged and will encourage you to think for yourself. 

On this programme the modules delivered by the Department of Economics are delivered in traditional weekly lectures and classes whilst the modules delivered by the Health Economics Unit are delivered via block sessions of 3 or 5 days. This programme is only suitable for students in full time study. You will participate in a range of teaching styles such as lectures, small group tutorials, presentations, peer group learning, self-study etc. You will have access to a comprehensive support system that will assist and encourage you, including personal tutors and welfare tutors who can help with both academic and welfare issues.

Employability

With its blend of applied health economic modules and specialist economic modules the MSc in Health Economics and Econometrics is ideal for individuals wishing to embark on a career as a health economist in industry, the health service or academia.

Employability from the allied and established MSc in Health Economics and Health Policy has been consistently high. This new programme has been specifically designed to complement the current demand by building on specific skills that are known to be in short supply.

This programme will supplement the standard health economic toolkit of economic evaluation and modelling by helping those with particular technical interests to develop techniques to analyse aspects of the Health Service and the big data sets that are being developed and those which are currently available in health service systems and databases.

The M.Sc. in Economic Policy Studies (EPS) programme is a two-year part-time postgraduate programme designed to provide graduates with the skills to apply economic perspectives and approaches to the study of policy issues. There is an in-take of new students every second year; accordingly the next student in-take will be for the academic year commencing September 2014. Staff from the Department of Economics, as well as where appropriate other staff from both within and outside the College, lecture on the programme. The programme's aim is to provide participants with a greater understanding of the economic policy process and the ability to engage confidently in evidence-based economic policy making. It enables graduates to contribute effectively to the processes of economic policy formulation, change and implementation, using various concepts and methods in social science analyses. Policy making in any field requires a range of skills and analytical approaches; while this programme focuses on economic policy and on the economic analysis of other policies, the political economy context, both domestically and internationally, is also explored.

During the two years, students will undertake a number of modules over three ten-week terms and spend the remainder of the second year working on their dissertations. The first teaching term takes place from late September to December and the second from January to April of Year 1. Students undertake four modules in Year 1 as follows: data analysis, modelling and research methods; understanding markets; Irish economic policy issues and context; macroeconomic concepts and issues. The third teaching term takes place form late September to December of Year 2 and in this time students undertake two specialised modules from three possible options; namely economic evaluation, competition and regulation and money and banking. The remainder of Year 2 is focused on completion of the dissertation.

About MathMods. MathMods is a. 2-year. Joint. MSc programme which can be taken in. 5 EU universities. Read more

About MathMods

MathMods is a 2-year Joint MSc programme which can be taken in 5 EU universities: University of L’Aquila in Italy (UAQ), Vienna University of Technology in Austria (TUW), Autonomous University of Barcelona in Spain (UAB), Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) & University of Hamburg in Germany (UHH), and University of Nice - Sophia Antipolis in France (UNS).

What makes MathMods so special is its peculiar mobility scheme, that is the fact that our students will be spending their postgrad years in two or even three different European countries. You'll be indeed studying in central Italy for your first semester, then move to Austria or Germany for the second term, and finally move again to 1 of our 5 partners for your second year, based on the mobility path you'll be assigned. 

Upon graduation students will be awarded a Joint Master's degree (or double, depending on where they spend their Year2).

Since its establishement in 2008 MathMods was funded by the EU Commission firstly through the Erasmus Mundus programme action 1 A (project no. 2008-0100), and later through the Erasmus+ Key Action 1 programme, project no. 2013-0227. We're currently applying for the Erasmus+ Call for Proposals 2018 to continue awarding Erasmus Munuds scholarships to our future generations. No matter the outcome, MathMods will still be running with the aid of Consortium grants and other local grants. Visit the sections Apply and Program Structure to learn more.

Programme Structure

Semester 1 focuses on Theory and is to be spend in L'Aquila (Italy)

Semester 2 focuses on Numerics and can be taken in Vienna (Austria) or Hamburg (Germany).

Then for Year2 each partner institution offers a specific curriculum or study path:

  • Mathematical models in social sciences (UAQ, Italy)
  • Mathematical modelling and optimisation (UAQ, Italy)
  • Stochastic modelling and optimization (UAB, Spain)
  • Modelling and simulation of complex systems (TUHH or UHH, Germany)
  • Mathematical modelling applications to finance (UNS, France)
  • Advanced modelling and numerics for applied PDEs (TUW, Austria)

Semester4 is dedicated to thesis work.

Aims

Mathematical modelling refers to the use of mathematics and related computational tools to bring real-world, challenging and important socio-economic and industrial problems into a form simple enough so that a good solution can be found in a reasonable time, while keeping the relevant features of the problem. Constructing models requires knowledge of enough mathematical theory, methods of solution which are really effective and efficient, computational tools at hand to do it, some knowledge of the field of application, and communicative skills to understand the important elements from experts in that field. Our master's programme tries to put together all these elements to produce professionals able to work in different relevant fields with the highest intellectual level and state-of-the-art tools.

Effective modelling and simulation is an art that require a lot of practice, so that problem solving, project development and team work are aspects that should be highlighted in any training programme, as our Consortium knows perfectly. On the other hand, the abstraction behind the specific application is necessary to realise that the same base tools can be applied, with the needed changes, to very different situations in various engineering fields.

Language

The language of the whole course is exclusively English at each of our five universities. Students must also attend (and acquire the relating credits of) a course of basic Italian language (first semester) and German language (second semester). Students will also have the opportunity to attend local language courses during their second year (spent at one of the five partners).

Employability

The area of applied mathematics on which this project is focused is a fundamental scientific field for a number of key technologies and sciences. The areas of the proposed tracks connect very well with various branches of the European high-tech industry, and one of the goals of the project is to enhance these connections by means of the release of well prepared professionals and researchers.

Career opportunities for graduates will typically arise in research and development laboratories, especially those defining and testing numerical models and procedures, either working for an specific sector or with a broader scope. Also, in big or medium size enterprises possessing their own research department or a division with an orientation towards research, in public or privately held Sector Technology Centres, and at computing centres involved in data processing or the creation of numerical codes for the industry.

 Click here to view the results of a recent survey taken by our graduates about their overall experience in our MSc and their work experience after having graduated.

Academic opportunities

The graduates will be able to apply successfully for PhD programmes if they wish so, as has happened for the three already completed cycles. In all the countries of the Consortium members, the programme has been validated as enabling the holder of the MSc degree to enter a local PhD programme. A good percentage of our students seem indeed to prefer pursuing a PhD before going to the industry or returning to their countries of origin. The intended level of the programme, together with the initial selection of the students, allows affirming that most of them could follow a successful academic career, after a suitable PhD.

You can only take one module at a time, but each module is typically available in at least two of the year's study sessions. This gives you the flexibility to plan how you study during the year, enabling you to fit your study in with your professional, family and personal commitments.

You will be individually assigned an online academic tutor for the duration of each module with whom you can discuss academic queries at regular intervals during the study session. You will also have a named administrator providing you with help and advice throughout your studies.

Before the start of each module you have enrolled on, you will be sent a package containing all of the study materials that you need to complete the module – the core text, textbooks, a collection of key articles, and any module related software.

To make your experience as a distance learning student more complete and rewarding, we provide access to the Virtual Learning Environment, which is a web-accessed learning environment. Via the VLE, you can communicate with your assigned academic tutor, administrators and other students on the module using discussion forums. The VLE also provides access to the module Study Guide and assignments, as well as a selection of electronic journals available on the University of London Online Library.

For each module, you will sit a three-hour examination, held on a specified date in September/October, and complete two assignments during the module study session. Assignments are submitted and feedback given online. Examinations and assignments are weighted 70:30.

What is the Erasmus Mundus Master of Science in Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling all about?

Get in at the bleeding edge of contemporary chemistry: theoretical and computational chemistry are marking the new era that lies ahead in the molecular sciences. The aim of the programme is to train scientists that are able to address a wide range of problems inmodern chemical, physical and biological sciences through the combination of theoretical and computational tools.

This programme is organised by:

  • Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (coordinating institution), Spain
  • Universiteit Groningen, the Netherlands
  • KU Leuven, Belgium
  • Università degli Studi di Perugia, Italy
  • Universidade do Porto, Portugal
  • Université Paul Sabatier - Toulouse III, France
  • Universitat de Valencia, Spain

The Erasmus Mundus Master of Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling is a joint initiative of these European Universities, including KU Leuven and co-ordinated by the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. 

This is an initial Master's programme and can be followed on a full-time or part-time basis.

Structure

The programme is organised according to a two-year structure.

  • The first year of the programme introduces you to concepts and methods. The core of the programme is an intensive international course intended to bring all participants to a common level of excellence. It takes place in the summer between year 1 and year 2 and runs for four weeks. Coursework is taught by a select group of invited international experts.
  • The second year of the programme is devoted to tutorials covering the material dealt with in the intensive course and to a thesis project carried out in part at another university within the consortium. The intensive course is organised at the partner institutions on a rotating basis.

Department

The Department of Chemistry consists of four divisions, all of which conduct highquality research embedded in well-established collaborations with other universities, research institutes and companies around the world. Its academic staff is committed to excellence in teaching and research. Although the department's primary goal is to obtain insight into the composition, structure and properties of chemical compounds and the design, synthesis and development of new (bio)molecular materials, this knowledge often leads to applications with important economic or societal benefits.

The department aims to develop and maintain leading, internationally renowned research programmes dedicated to solving fundamental and applied problems in the fields of:

  • the design, synthesis and characterisation of new compounds (organic-inorganic, polymers).
  • the simulation of the properties and reactivity of (bio)molecules, polymers and clusters by quantum chemical and molecular modelling methods.
  • the determination of the chemical and physical properties of (bio)molecules, and polymers on the molecular as well as on the material level by spectroscopy, microscopy and other characterisation tools as related to their structure.

Objectives

Modern Chemistry is unthinkable without the achievements of Theoretical and Computational Chemistry. As a result these disciplines have become a mandatory tool for the molecular science towards the end of the 20th century, and they will undoubtedly mark the new era that lies ahead of us.

In this perspective the training and formation of the new generations of computational and theoretical chemists with a deep and broad knowledge is of paramount importance. Experts from seven European universities have decided to join forces in a European Master Course for Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling (TCCM). This course is recognized as an Erasmus Mundus course by the European Union.

Graduates will have acquired the skills and competences for advanced research in chemical, physical and material sciences, will be qualified to collaborate in an international research team, and will be able to develop professional activities as experts in molecular design in pharmaceutical industry, petrochemical companies and new-materials industry.

Career perspectives

In addition to commanding sound theoretical knowledge in chemistry and computational modelling, you will be equipped to apply any of the scientific codes mastered in the programme in a work environment, or develop new codes to address new requirements associated with research or productive activities.

You will have attained the necessary skills to pursue a scientific career as a doctoral student in chemistry, physics or material science. You will also be qualified to work as an expert in molecular design in the pharmaceutical industry, at petrochemical companies and in the new-materials industry. You will also have a suitable profile to work as a computational expert.

Master's specialisation in Business Analysis and Modelling. The Master's specialisation in Business Analysis and Modelling focuses on two aspects of managerial decision making. Read more

Master's specialisation in Business Analysis and Modelling

The Master's specialisation in Business Analysis and Modelling focuses on two aspects of managerial decision making:

1. The individual and social biases and heuristics leading to suboptimal or even low quality decisions.

2. Interventions aiming at improving managerial decision making (group decision support).

This specialisation shares the application of formal methods and modelling with the Operations Research and Management Science departments of other economic and business administration programmes . However, consistent with the Nijmegen research profile, it looks at (strategic) decision making from the point of view of the ‘Responsible Organisation,' focusing not only on the analytical aspect, but also on the social aspects of decision making.

Students will be trained both in analysing complex problems as well as facilitation skills needed to intervene effectively in decision making processes.

See the website http://www.ru.nl/masters/bam

Non Dutch Students

For the Master's programme Business Administration, the admission requirements for students with a non-Dutch diploma are:

- An academic Bachelor's degree in Business Administration

- English language proficiency

Career prospects

Most of the students in the BAM specialisation and in the two-year European Masters in System Dynamics (of which BAM is the Nijmegen component) will find jobs at advisory bureaus or the strategic planning departments of large companies.

Our research in this field

- Theory and action-based learning

This programme is closely associated with the research carried out within the Institute of Management Research, where the focus is on research into relationship management, institutional dynamics, decision making and innovative management. You will become familiar with both the theoretical and practical aspects of your special subject. The programme combines a thorough training in methodology with action-based learning: you apply the theory you have learned to concrete cases and learn to develop appropriate solutions. And, in our Visa Skills Lab, students use computers to make scenario analyses and simulate decision-making processes within organisations.

- Truly international

The education and research training we provide are internationally oriented. Our students have the opportunity to take part in a Master’s level project on European Human Resource Management, a cooperative venture among six leading European business schools and universities. Here, students work in a multi-cultural team and follow a consultancy in-company project in one of the six countries involved.
