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 links mathematics with engineering, biology and other sciences, and gives you the opportunity to have direct contact with many industrial companies. You can also choose to do a three-month project which can be linked to industry or a six-month work placement with a company. We have links with many industrial companies, who work with students and help to run projects.
