Course content

On this integrated degree you will join the broader Maxwell Institute Graduate School in its Bayes Centre home.

You will benefit from:

  • dedicated academic training in subjects that include mathematical analysis, computational mathematics, multi-scale modelling, model reduction, Bayesian inference, uncertainty quantification, inverse problems and data assimilation, and machine learning
  • extensive experience of collaborative and interdisciplinary work through projects, modelling camps, industrial sandpits and internships
  • outstanding early-career training, with a strong focus on entrepreneurship
  • a dynamic and forward-looking community of mathematicians and scientists, sharing strong values of collaboration, respect, and social and scientific responsibility

You will integrate into a vibrant research environment, closely interacting with many academics, comprising mathematicians from the University of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt University. You will also engage with computer scientists, biologists, engineers, physicists and chemists providing their own disciplinary expertise. The programme is also complemented by many industrial and government partners.
