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, banking, quantitative finance, algorithmic trading, operations research, supply chain and mining.
The research report component of the programme requires you to conduct research under the guidance of a supervisor. The topic that you will focus on will be formulated by you and your supervisor, focussing on cutting edge problems in the field of computational and applied mathematics.
