Course content

Our MSc delivers an outstanding combination of advanced application-oriented mathematical concepts and computational methodologies. Broad in scope and genuinely multidisciplinary in nature, it is based on solid and well-founded mathematical theory.

Subject modules are carefully designed to be accessible to anyone with a good first degree in mathematics or in science and engineering subjects which have a strong mathematical component.

Comprising three key stages – a Postgraduate Certificate, a Postgraduate Diploma and a full Masters qualification – it will give you:

In-depth knowledge and understanding of fundamental mathematical theory, advanced mathematical concepts and powerful computational techniques.

  • High-level skills in applying advanced mathematical concepts and computational techniques to real-world problems.
  • A sound understanding of the relationship of mathematics to other sciences, business and industry.
  • A critical appreciation of applied mathematics and computing, emphasising the bridges between theory and practice.
  • The capacity to communicate complex ideas, particularly regarding multidisciplinary applications.
  • The ability to be a critically self-reflective practitioner – who can learn and work both independently and as part of a multidisciplinary team.
