Program overview

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.
