Course content

This course aims to provide you with everything you need to get into this area at a level where you can understand – and contribute to – industry practice and the latest research.

To do this, the courses we offer are orientated in different ways. Some give the necessary finance and economics background; others provide instruction in fundamental mathematics (stochastic analysis, partial differential equations, etc.). Scientific computing (object-orientated programming in C++) is an integral part of the programme.
