Course content

Study interdisciplinary applied mathematics and modern scientific computing with an emphasis on problem-solving, and gain an understanding of different disciplines and industrial problems.

You'll develop an awareness of modern applications of mathematics in an interdisciplinary environment and will get professional level training in mathematical methods, mathematical modelling, scientific computation and other applied techniques, combining both theory and applications. You’ll also have the opportunity to choose optional units, ranging from biomechanics and cryptography to computational chemistry.

The course connects mathematics with engineering, biology and other sciences. It gives you the opportunity to have direct contact with industrial companies and undertake a three-month project with industrial collaboration.
Graduates from the course have gone on to further research in Lausanne, Berlin, Brussels, Frankfurt, and have taken up academic posts in Malaysia, Sweden, Germany, Canada, US and in the UK. Recent employers include British Aerospace, Network Rail, Pfizer, Barclays Capital and Powergen.
