You’ll study interdisciplinary applied mathematics and modern scientific computing, with an emphasis on problem solving. You will gain an understanding of different disciplines and industrial problems. The course links mathematics with engineering, biology and other sciences, and gives students direct contact with industry.
You will develop an awareness of modern applications of mathematics in an interdisciplinary environment. You will get professional level training in mathematical methods, mathematical modelling, scientific computation and other applied techniques, combining both theory and applications.
The course specialises in interdisciplinary applications of mathematics, notably in industry and mathematical biology. You’ll have the opportunity to choose from a wide scope of interdisciplinary units, ranging from astrophysics over cryptography to computational chemistry.
You can choose to do a three month project which can be linked to industry or a six month work placement with a company. The placement route offers a chance to experience first-hand how mathematics can be applied in industry.
You will benefit from the close interactions that the department has with many industrial companies, who come and work with students and help to run projects.
