Train in the methods and techniques needed to apply mathematics to the real world. Gain exposure to different disciplines and industries.

You’ll study interdisciplinary applied mathematics and modern scientific computing, with an emphasis on problem-solving. You’ll also gain an understanding of different disciplines and industrial problems.

You’ll develop an awareness of modern applications of mathematics in an interdisciplinary environment and will get professional level training in mathematical methods, mathematical modelling, scientific computation and other applied techniques, combining both theory and applications. You’ll also have the opportunity to choose optional units, ranging from biomechanics and cryptography to computational chemistry.
