Course content

On the PhD in Mathematics of Systems you will learn to apply new mathematical techniques to solve real-world systems challenges. Ranked 3rd in the UK in REF 2014, the Warwick Mathematics Institute offers an expertly designed programme to train independent researchers.

Would you like to use novel mathematics to tackle real-world problems? Our research bridges two cross-cutting methodological themes that are central to complex multi-scale systems prediction: modelling across spatial and temporal scales; and hybrid modelling integrating complex data and mechanistic models. These themes pervade real-world problems in many areas of active research and will shape mathematical and computational modelling for the coming decades.
