Course content

This programme focuses on developing future leaders in computational modelling of science and engineering systems. Sophisticated skills in simulation methods, numerical methods, programming in Python and C, parallel programming, data processing and statistics and software engineering for research are taught and developed, and brought together and applied to real-world problems. About half of the projects are co-funded by industrial partners. Research projects cover a broad range of topics in engineering and the physical sciences and are based in Southampton’s internationally renowned research groups. You will have access to Southampton’s supercomputer, Iridis, the largest academic machine in England.

Year one is comparable to a taught masters course. Years two to four involve full-time research on your PhD research topic.
