About Applied Mathematics
Masters degrees in Applied Mathematics involve applying mathematical principles in the solution of functional area problems, particularly in industrial contexts.
Related subjects include Applicable Mathematics and Computational Applied Mathematics. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree in a relevant Mathematics discipline, or a subject with a large mathematical component such as Physics.
The techniques which are practised within Applied Mathematics may be used across a broad range of areas and related industries.
For example, you may wish to specialise in industrial mathematics, practising numerical analysis in relation to dynamical systems, fluid mechanics, continuum mechanics and elasticity. These methods could be applied to the automotive or aerospace industries in your future career.
Alternatively, you might gear your studies towards computing and modelling, perhaps combining methods from mathematical biology and chemistry to undertake bioinformatics within the medical or pharmaceutical industries.
You could even work for different organisations practising actuarial science, applying mathematical techniques such as probability and statistics to assess risk in the insurance, finance and other related industries.
Other careers may include operations research for any number of businesses, for which you may wish to study a PhD after your Masters.
