We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Mathematical Methods involve advanced study of the specific techniques associated with solving mathematical problems.
Related subjects include Statistics and Operational Research. Entry requirements usually include an undergraduate degree in a relevant Mathematics discipline.
Mathematical Methods may be applied to a range of purposes across various industries and sectors. As a result, courses in this field offer a broad selection of specialisms for you to choose from, with others allowing you to study the field more generally.
For example, you may wish to focus your studies towards economic practices, combining methodology from Economics, Mathematics and Business Studies. Within this, you may undertake financial forecasting, modelling trade activities and analysing data on national and international scales to predict shortfalls in areas such as stocks.
Mathematical methods like linear algebra, differential equations and vector calculus, are also applicable to fields as diverse as Architecture, Robotics, Computer Science and Automotives. So, you could be employed to apply methodology to develop computer software, improve human-computer interfaces, or calculate the performance of different vehicle prototypes.
