Description

You’ll develop an awareness of modern applications of mathematics in an interdisciplinary environment. You’ll get professional-level training in modern mathematical methods, mathematical modelling, scientific computation and other applied techniques, with an emphasis on problem-solving. You’ll have the chance to study optional units from departments throughout the Faculty of Science, for example aerodynamics, microbial evolution or nanoscience.

You’ll get the opportunity to make direct contact with industrial companies and undertake a three-month project with industrial collaboration. Graduates from the course have gone on to further research in Berlin, Brussels, Frankfurt, and Lausanne, and academic posts in Canada, Germany, Malaysia, Sweden, the UK, and the US. Recent employers include Barclays Capital, British Aerospace, Network Rail, Pfizer, and Powergen.
