The MSc by Research in Mathematics of Complex Systems is aimed at students with a good degree in a numerate subject who want to use their mathematical ability to pursue high level professional careers, and who are interested in developing their research skills in the field of complex systems hands-on.
The programme offers the combination of a concentrated taught component where the students are introduced to a wide variety of techniques in a principled way, and an extensive research project in which they learn how to apply these techniques to real problems, and in which they get a good taste of all the aspects that research (in academia or industry) entails. Run within a stimulating research environment (the NCRG Non-linearity and Complexity Research Group), the programme enables students to develop through doing research. The topics reflect a wide range of active research interests in the group, ensuring that both the course material and projects include the latest developments at the forefront of current research.
The nine month individual research project may involve analysis of new theoretical insights, or gaining practical experience of developing new methods and applying them to real-world problems. It can be taken in collaboration with an external commercial or industrial organisation and could be jointly supervised. The projects are chosen from many put forward by researchers at the forefront of their field. The project is assessed by a substantial written thesis together with an oral examination with external and internal examiners and may result in a refereed publication.
The programme offers the possibility to extend the MSc into a PhD.
