Modern Applications of Mathematics (MSc)


Course Description

This programme trains you in the methods and techniques to apply mathematics to the real world, with a particular emphasis on problem solving and an exposure to different disciplines and industrial problems.

The programme aims to provide innovative training in interdisciplinary applied mathematics and modern scientific computing. It links mathematics with engineering, biology and other sciences, and gives students direct contact with industry.

It develops an awareness of modern applications of mathematics in an interdisciplinary environment, provides training in mathematical methods, mathematical modelling, scientific computation and other applied techniques, and bridges the gap between theory and applications.

Why study Mathematical Sciences with us?

- Consistently ranked in the top ten of Mathematics league tables
- The most recent assessment of the quality of research being done in academic departments across the UK, (RAE 2008), confirms that our research activity is at the forefront of international excellence
- We have a fully-supported professional placement programme.

What will I learn?

The MSc Modern Applications of Mathematics specialises in interdisciplinary applications of mathematics, notably in industry and mathematical biology. There is the possibility of a six month placement with industry.

The MSc combines a thorough education in core areas of applied mathematics with interdisciplinary training; there is a wide range of interdisciplinary units to choose from, ranging from astrophysics over cryptography to computational chemistry.

The theory elements will be developed in context, with the students doing an applications based project.

The MSc benefits strongly from close interactions with many industrial companies who come to meet the students and to offer projects. Recent project partners have included:

BAE systems
Airbus
the Met Office
SERCO
Schlumberger
BT
RHM Food Technology
QinetiQ
Hoare-Lea Acoustics

We offer a six month industrial placement as alternative to a three-month project, both leading to a dissertation.

This placement gives the opportunity to work in a company for an extended period of time and to gain in this way first-hand experience in industrial applications of mathematics. Several companies have funded places on offer.
