About Mathematical Methods
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.

Businesses, organisations, and individuals all strive to work as effectively as possible. Operational research uses advanced statistical and analytical methods to help improve the complex decision-making processes to deliver a product or service.
In addition to being a science in its own right, mathematics plays a fundamental role in the quantitative areas of practically all other academic disciplines, particularly in the natural sciences, engineering, business administration, economics, medicine and psychology.
The Masters in Mathematics/Applied Mathematics offers courses, taught by experts, across a wide range. Mathematics is highly developed yet continually growing, providing new insights and applications.
The Theoretical Physics MSc is an intensive, research-led course in which you will examine basic topics in theoretical and mathematical physics such as general relativity and quantum field theory, before exploring advanced topics such as string theory, supersymmetry and integrable quantum field theory.
This programme introduces you to the methods of statistical analysis, together with the underlying theory and some of the associated mathematics.
At Essex we push the frontiers of accepted wisdom, critically examining the decisions of individuals, the strategies of firms, and the policies of governments to understand and challenge the standard paradigms of economics.
The University of Oxford’s online Postgraduate Certificate in Nanotechnology is an online course aimed at professionals from a diverse range of backgrounds who wish to learn more about the foundations of nanotechnology, technological advances and the applications enabled by nanotechnology.
Loughborough University has a long history of internationally recognised research in the study and development of new materials, and our Physics of Materials MSc provides you with the opportunity to work with expert researchers in the field.
Our postgraduate programmes are specifically designed to enhance your career prospects and research expertise. Students will benefit from our broad range of industrial partners and internationally leading research expertise, and will get the opportunity to work within our research groups.
