Mathematical Modelling MSc

Course Description

Postgraduate Masters/MSc degree programme in Mathematical Modelling:

Most things in the real world are complex and difficult to understand, from biological systems to the financial markets to industrial processes, but explaining them is essential to making progress in the modern world. Mathematical modelling is a fundamental tool in the challenge to understand many of these systems, and is an essential part of contemporary applied mathematics. By developing, analysing and interpreting mathematical and computational models we gain insight into these complex processes, as well as giving a framework in which to interpret experimental data.

To fully capitalise on these tools, there is a fundamental need in both academic research and industry for a new generation of scientists trained to work at the interdisciplinary frontiers of mathematics and computation. These scientists require the ability to assimilate and understand information from other disciplines, communicate with and enthuse other researchers, as well as having the advanced mathematical and computational skills needed.

In the Autumn and Spring semesters, you will take masters-level courses in both advanced mathematical modelling and computation, in addition to the core interdisciplinary skills needed for a career in this field. In the summer you will undertake a research skills project, working with research leaders in a related area such as biosciences, systems biology, chemical engineering or medicine, alongside mathematics and computation. This will provide directly relevant training for a career in academic, industrial or clinical research, for example biotechnology, industrial engineering or the pharmaceutical industry. A key component will be training specifically in multidisciplinary research and communication, a vital skill for whichever career path the MSc leads you to.
