Applied Mathematical Sciences offers a clear and relevant gateway into a successful career in business, education or scientific research. The programme arms students with the essential knowledge required by all professional mathematicians working across many disciplines. You will learn to communicate their ideas effectively to peers and others, as well as the importance of research, planning and self-motivation.
Students will take a total of 8 courses, 4 in each of the 1st and 2nd Semesters followed by a 3-month Project in the summer. A typical distribution for this programme is as follows:
Modelling and Tools; Optimization; Dynamical Systems; Applied Mathematics (recommended); Applied Linear Algebra (recommended).
Mathematical Ecology; Functional Analysis; Numerical Analysis of ODEs; Pure Mathematics; Statistical Methods; Stochastic Simulation; Software Engineering Foundations; Mathematical Biology and Medicine; Partial Differential Equations; Numerical Analysis; Geometry.
Typical project subjects
Pattern Formation of Whole Ecosystems; Climate Change Impact; Modelling Invasive Tumour Growth; Simulation of Granular Flow and Growing Sandpiles; Finite Element Discretisation of ODEs and PDEs; Domain Decomposition; Mathematical Modelling of Crime; The Geometry of Point Particles; Can we Trust Eigenvalues on a Computer?
