About the courseAccurate and efficient scientific computations lie at the heart of most cross-discipline collaborations. It is vital that such computations are performed in a stable, efficient manner and that the numerics converge to the true solutions of the dynamics of the physics, chemistry or biology in the problem. The programme closely follows the structure of our MSc in Applied Mathematical Sciences and is designed to equip students with the skill to perform efficient and accurate computer simulations in a wide variety of applied mathematics, physics, chemical and industry related problems. Students will undertake research projects with a strong computational element. Examples include subjects such as Spectral Pollution, Domain Decomposition, Contamination of Groundwater, Oil Reservoir Simulation, Computational Neuroscience and Uncertainty Estimation and other cutting-edge topics. Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) 2018/19 Results The Mathematics Department are incredibly proud to have been awarded a score of 100% in overall student satisfaction with the quality of the course; across all of our specialist Mathematics programmes. Duration MSc - One year Diploma - 9 months Also available part-time over 2 to 3 years
