Course content


This interdisciplinary Master’s degree provides you with a broad background in aspects of modern mathematics and computer science. You’ll be introduced to sophisticated techniques at the forefront of both disciplines.

The programme combines teaching and research from the School of Mathematics and the School of Computing. Based on the Schools’ complementary research strengths, you may follow two main strands:

·        Algorithms and complexity theory

·        Numerical methods and parallel computing

Alternatively, you may follow their own interests based on the very wide variety of modules on offer. These range from pure mathematics (Logic, Algebra, Graph theory) to applied (Numerical Analysis, Data Mining, Optimisation) to statistics. You’ll also develop your research and independent thinking skills when you complete your dissertation.

Course content

It is expected that you will specialise in one of two areas during the course, although with the wide variety of modules available you will be able to tailor your own experience.

The two strands are:

Algorithms and complexity theory and connections to logic and combinatorics

This concerns the efficiency of algorithms for solving computational problems, and identifies hierarchies of computational difficulty. This subject has applications in many areas, such as distributed computing, algorithmic tools to manage transport infrastructure, health informatics, artificial intelligence, and computational biology.

Numerical methods and parallel computing

Many problems in mathematics, physics, astrophysics and biology cannot be solved using analytical techniques and require the application of numerical algorithms for progress. The development and optimisation of these algorithms coupled with the recent increase in computing power via the availability of massively parallel machines has led to great advances in many fields of computational mathematics. This subject has applications in many areas, such as combustion, lubrication, atmospheric dispersion, river and harbour flows, and many more.

You will also undertake a research project or dissertation in either Mathematics or Computer Science. This is an opportunity for you to do an in-depth investigation of a subject that appeals to you, and your supervisor will help you to find a topic that matches your interests and career aspirations.
