The course aims to develop core skills in applied mathematics and allows students to specialise in industrial modelling or numerical analysis, in preparation for study towards a PhD or a career using mathematics within industry. An important element is the course regarding transferable skills which will link with academics and employers to deliver important skills for a successful transition.
Mathematical modelling is: a process in which real-life situations and relations in these situations are expressed by using mathematics (Haines and Crouch, 2007), or; a cyclical process in which real-life problems are translated into mathematical language, solved within a symbolic system, and the solutions tested back within the real-life system (Verschaffel, Greer, and De Corte, 2002).
Mathematical Modelling underpins many areas of research and a degree in this area can open careers in a huge range of research and development roles. Your specialism will be relevant to any company concerned with our climate, from crop production to energy suppliers or environmental consultants.Study PhD with Integrated study in Mathematical Modelling, Analysis and Computation at the University of Edinburgh.

Mathematics is everywhere, and with the rise of big data it becomes a useful tool when extracting information and analysing large datasets. We begin by explaining how maths underpins many of the tools that are used to manage and analyse big data. We show how very different applied problems can have common mathematical aims, and therefore can be addressed using similar mathematical tools. We.Read More
The process of mathematical modelling, based on simplifying assumptions about the real world, is outlined. You will work in groups to create a mathematical model and to produce a mini-report. The work on methods comprises topics chosen for their usefulness in dealing with the models; the main emphasis is on solving the problems arising in the real world, rather than on axiom systems or.Read More
The MSc by Coursework and Research Report in Computational and Applied Mathematics offers a curriculum tailored towards maximising candidates' employability and success in future research. Many industrial sectors and occupations are heavily reliant on the ability to interpret problems and creatively meaningful solutions and analysis thereof. Industrial settings include but are not limited to.Read More
The Mathematics Joint Honours pathways equip you with knowledge and understanding of key concepts in both mathematics and operational research. In particular, you will explore the use of mathematics within the modern world of business. You will develop skills in analytical problem-solving, communication and IT, working both independently and as a member of a team. Our friendly and supportive.Read More
The course has been designed by Stokes Professor of Industrial and Applied Mathematics Andrew Fowler (who has experience teaching a similar programme at the University of Oxford). The first two semesters will be examined on coursework from both a mandatory core and a suite of optional courses from which the student can choose. The coursework will be followed by the preparation of a.Read More
Mathematical modelling and computing are important in mathematics education and mathematical modelling because, in addition to enabling the learning of mathematics in a contextual way, it gives students the opportunity to develop their potential. Computing facilitates visualizations and offers precise and quick answers and, because it enables mathematical work through experiment form, it.Read More
Graduates may pursue careers specific to mathematics, such as mathematical modelling, financial management, pensions, investment and forensic science investigation, or consider a statistics career in data analysis, data mining, data science, customer relationship management or actuarial work. There are also relevant roles in operational research, business and education sectors, which appeal to.Read More
Learn about real-life applications of mathematics, including mathematical and numerical approaches to modelling, problem-solving, and statistical methods. Use modern software and technology to apply mathematical techniques, and develop your analysis and interpretation skills to provide solutions for a variety of applications.Read More
This MSc provides an ideal foundation for students wishing to advance their mathematical modelling skills. The programme teaches students the basic concepts which arise in a broad range of technical and scientific problems and illustrates how these may be applied in a research context to provide powerful solutions. UCL Mathematics is internationally renowned for its excellent individual and.Read More
Assessment is based on examination and coursework. Marks are weighted in a 1:3:6 ratio for the three years of study to produce an overall aggregate. Types of assessment. Set exercises or coursework, which you take home and complete with the aid of your notes. Formal unseen written examinations every year. Class or online tests. Group assessments, such as written reports, also form the basis of.Read More
