Brief Description

This MSc provides training in techniques of applied mathematics, and focuses mainly on mathematical models of real-world processes, their formulation in terms of differential equations, and methods of solutions, both numerical and analytical, of the models. The main emphasis of the course is on practical problems which arise in industry, commerce, medicine, and in the environmental and life sciences.

This course will provide training in techniques of applied mathematics, and will focus largely on mathematical models of real world processes, their formulation in terms of differential equations, and methods of solutions, both numerical and analytical, of the models. A focus of the course will be an emphasis on practical problems which arise in industry, commerce, medicine, as well as the environmental and life sciences. In particular, there will be a close alliance between the course and research problems in industrial applied mathematics, which is a principal research strand underpinning MACSI research.

Programme Aims:

  • To provide a first year of intensive taught courses as part of a structured graduate programme for MACSI postgraduates and to enable graduates of engineering and other disciplines to redirect their training towards mathematical modelling.

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 dissertation over the summer months under close supervision.  The dissertation will be at research level, and may focus on a problem that arises through MACSI’s connections with industry.  The MSc can also be taken part time over a 2 or 3 year period, after consultation with the Course Director.  This course will provide training in applied mathematics techniques and will focus on mathematical models of real world processes, their formulation in terms of differential equations and methods of solution – both numerical and analytical.  Practical problems will be drawn from the industrial, commercial, medical, environmental and life science domains.
