Course content

An MSc by Research in Applied Mathematics allows students to conduct research into areas of mathematics with practical applications in business and industry.

As a researcher in the School of Mathematics and Physics, you have the opportunity to work with leading experts in the field and to develop strong national and international collaborations.

Research in the School follows two distinct strands: computational physics/applied mathematics and pure mathematics. Research in applied mathematics is focused on the development of numerical methods and algorithms for solving various equations found in materials science, specifically in the field of nanomaterials. This includes advanced parallelisation and adaptation of the methods for modern supercomputers.

You benefit from state-of-the-art computational facilities, training programmes to enhance your research skills and support from dedicated academic supervisors. You will be supported and encouraged to submit papers to international scientific journals, present your findings at conferences and share knowledge with colleagues across the University.
