The Master of Science in Mathematical Engineering is unique in Flanders and is supported by high quality research that has led to several spin-off companies.
The ever increasing computer capacity for treatment of data, storage of measurements and data, and computing models, offers solutions to important challenges in business and society. Often mathematical techniques are crucial. A few examples:
At first sight, these applications have little in common. However, for each of those, large amounts of data and various models are available. Mathematical techniques are crucial for the efficient treatment of these data and for fast and accurate simulation and optimisation.
The programme consists of a technical core education on advanced topics on mathematics, process control, system identification, numerical optimisation, numerical simulation of differential equations, scientific software, and a project where students solve a problem that requires a combination of knowledge and skills taught at the core education.
The students freely choose among the many elective courses. They are stimulated to select courses from different tracks in order to obtain a broad overview of techniques and applications of mathematics in engineering science.
The elective courses include technical courses on mathematical techniques, as well as courses that are taught in other Master’s programmes that focus on modelling and the use of these mathematical techniques.
The Erasmus+ programme gives you the opportunity to gain valuable international experience by completing (usually) one semester at a participating European university. Student exchange agreements are also in place with a number of Japanese and American universitiesThis arrangement does not lengthen the duration of your degree programme, nor does it result in a separate degree.
It is also possible to complete an internship at a company abroad. Ask the internship coordinator for more information.
These studying abroad opportunities and internships are complemented by the short courses offered via the Board of European Students of Technology (BEST) network. The Faculty of Engineering Science is also member of the international networks CESAER, CLUSTER and T.I.M.E.
You can find more information on this topic on the website of the Faculty.
The programme is generally perceived positively by alumni.
There are many elective courses, which gives freedom to develop an individual study programme tuned to the student’s interest. This fact is often mentioned by students and alumni as one of the strong points of the programme.
Since September 2014, the EC (Educational Committee) can rely on the expertise of the Industrial Advisory Board.
The programme is organised by the departments of computer science and electrical engineering. The students can use the computer infrastructure of both departments. The students become familiar with different fields of research which broadens their view.
This is an initial Master's programme and can be followed on a full-time or part-time basis.
Many small, dynamic, young companies are active in the field of mathematical engineering. But even big players in materials, chemistry, automotive, aerospace, biomedical industries, as well as finance, are increasingly interested in mathematical engineering thanks to the ever increasing complexity of mathematical models and more stringent environmental standards and comfort expectations. Many of our young graduates start their careers in the R&D departments of high-tech companies or matriculate into one of the university’s PhD programmes.

Recent years have witnessed an unprecedented growth in research in the area of nanoscience. There is increasing optimism that nanotechnology applied to medicine will bring significant advances in the diagnosis treatment and prevention of disease. Increasing demand and awareness of applications of nanotechnology in medicine has resulted in the emergence of a new discipline, namely nanomedicine.
This 12-month course (starts in October) is suitable for graduates with experience in disciplines of biology, life sciences or engineering who wish to develop their understanding of the application of Nanotechnology in healthcare and to undergo training in experimental design and experimental practice in a novel research topic.
This innovative programme in Nanomedicine combines a multidisciplinary approach of nanotechnology and medical science that promises to bring significant advances in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease.
- The opportunity to study specialised modules including Bionanotechnology, Bioinformatics, Diagnostics, Molecular Medicine, Regenerative Medicine, Nanomedicine, and Nanotoxicology , taught by leading researchers in the field
- Develop research skills by working with an interdisciplinary research team
- Use state-of-the art laboratory equipment in the Centre for NanoHealth
- Engage with clinicians through established links with local hospitals and Health Board
Carry out collaborative research with Industry, including hi-tech medical device companies based in the College of Medicine‘s Institute of Life Science.
The Nanomedicine programme is modular and structured in three levels, each building on the next. You can elect to take either the full Master's programme or the Postgraduate Certificate or Diploma, depending on need and circumstances.
The programme is designed to allow you to complete either as full time or part time study. For part-time students, each of the three components are scheduled to take a year each to complete.
The Nanomedicine programme will give you generic evidence based practice training with additional modules exploring:
Principles of Nanomedicine
Diagnostics and Imaging
Physiology and Disease
Nanomedicines and Therapeutics
Research Design and Ethics
The Medical School offers the following M Level modules as standalone opportunities for prospective students to undertake continued professional development (CPD) in the area of Nanomedicine.
You can enroll on the individual modules for this programme as either an Associate Student (who will be required to complete the module(s) assessments) or as a Non-Associate Student (who can attend all teaching sessions but will not be required to complete any assessments).
How to Apply

Postgraduate study has many benefits, including enhanced employability, career progression, intellectual reward and the opportunity to change direction with a conversion course.
From the moment you arrive in Swansea, specialist staff in Careers and Employability will help you plan and prepare for your future. They will help you identify and develop skills that will enable you to make the most of your postgraduate degree and enhance your career options. The services they offer will ensure that you have the best possible chance of success in the job market.
The student experience at Swansea University offers a wide range of opportunities for personal and professional development through involvement in many aspects of student life.
Co-curricular opportunities to develop employability skills include national and international work experience and study abroad programmes and volunteering, together with students' union and athletic union societies, social and leisure activities.
For the MSc Nanomedicine programme, we are in the process of identifying opportunities for our students to complete placements with a number of our collaborative partners.
