Course content

As an MSc by Research in Mathematics student you will be guided by internationally leading researchers and will carry out a large individual research project.

You will be fully integrated into one of our established Mathematics research groups and participate in research activities such as seminars, workshops, laboratories, and field work.

Key Features of the MSc by Research in Mathematics

Swansea is a research-led University and the Mathematics Department makes a significant contribution, meaning that as a Postgraduate Mathematics Student you will benefit from the knowledge and skills of internationally renowned academics.

In the Department of Mathematics at Swansea you will find friendly teaching staff that are fully committed to providing you with a supportive teaching and learning environment. This includes outstanding student support.

All postgraduate Mathematics programmes at Swansea will equip you with skills relevant for a rewarding career in a range of diverse fields. You will also further develop your communication, presentation and analytical skills.

The Mathematics Department’s research groups include:

Algebra and Topology Group

Areas of interest include: Noncommutative geometry, Categorical methods in algebra and topology, Homotopy theory and homological algebra and others.

Analysis and Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations Group

Areas of interest include: Reaction-diffusion and reaction-diffusion-convection equations and systems, Navier–Stokes equations in fluid dynamic, Complexity in the calculus of variations and others.

Stochastic Analysis Group

Areas of interest include: Functional inequalities and applications, Lévy-type processes, Stochastic modelling of fractal, multifractal and multiscale systems, Infinite dimensional stochastic analysis and others.

Mathematical Methods in Biology and Life Sciences Group

Areas of interest include: Mathematical pharmacology; heat and mass transfer models for plant cooling; modelling cellular signal transduction dynamics; mathematical oncology: multi-scale modelling of cancer growth, progression and therapies, and modelling-optimized delivery of multi-modality therapies; multi-scale analysis of individual-based models; spreading speeds and travelling waves in ecology; high performance computing.

Mathematics Research Programme Structure

As an MSc by Research in Mathematics student you will be guided by internationally leading researchers and will carry out a large individual research project.

You will be fully integrated into one of our established Mathematics research groups and participate in research activities such as seminars, workshops, laboratories, and field work.

The first part of assessment shall take the form of a thesis embodying the methods and results of the research project in Mathematics. All theses should be presented in accordance with the University’s Guide to the Submission and Presentation of a Thesis for Research Students.

The second part shall take the form of an oral examination (viva voce).

Employability

The ability to think rationally and to process data clearly and accurately are highly valued by employers. Mathematics graduates earn on average 50% more than most other graduates. The most popular areas Mathematics graduates enter are the actuarial profession, the financial sector, IT, computer programming and systems administration, and opportunities within business and industry where employers need mathematicians for research and development, statistical analysis, marketing and sales.

Facilities

The Aubrey Truman Reading Room, located in the centre of the Department of Mathematics, houses the departmental library and computers for student use, and is a popular venue for students to work independently on the regular exercise sheets set by their lecturers, and to discuss mathematics together.  

The main university library, the Learning and Information Centre (LIC), contains a notably extensive collection of mathematics books.

Research

The results of the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 show that our research environment (how the Mathematics Department supports research staff and students) and the impact of our research (its value to society) were both judged to be 100% world leading or internationally excellent.
