Course content

This programme develops mathematical modelling skills and provides mathematical techniques required by industry.

The period October to June is devoted to lectures, tutorials and practical sessions comprising the core modules. This is followed by a period of about 14 weeks devoted to an individual project either in an industrial or engineering company or at the University.

Core study areas include mathematical modelling, regular and chaotic dynamics, programming and numerical methods, advanced reliability, availability and maintainability, elements of partial differential equations, static and dynamic optimisation and fluid mechanics.
