This programme develops mathematical modelling skills and provides mathematical techniques required by industry.
The period October to June is devoted to lectures, tutorials and practical sessions comprising the core modules.
This is followed by a period of about 14 weeks devoted to an individual project either in an industrial or engineering company or at the University.
Core study areas include mathematical modelling, regular and chaotic dynamics, programming and numerical methods, advanced reliability, availability and maintainability, elements of partial differential equations, static and dynamic optimisation and fluid mechanics.
Compulsory Modules: Semester 1 - Mathematical Modelling I - Regular and Chaotic Dynamics - Programming and Numerical Methods - Advanced Reliability, Availability and Maintainability
Semester 2 - Mathematical Modelling II - Elements of Partial Differential Equations - Static and Dynamic Optimisation - Fluid Mechanics
A combination of written examinations, reports, individual and group projects, and verbal presentations.
Careers and further Study
Graduate employment over a wide range of industries encompassing aerospace, automotive electronics, and computer interests as well as software houses, insurance companies, and research establishments and institutions.
Scholarships and sponsorships
A limited number of scholarships are available for this programme as well as the loyalty bonus scheme which reduces fees for Loughborough graduates.
