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 focuses on the techniques of applied mathematics and on mathematical models of real-world processes.
The minimum entry requirement is a 2:2 undergraduate degree (Level 8 - National Qualifications Authority of Ireland) (or equivalent) in mathematics, or any related numerate discipline.
•Advanced Methods I
3 elective modules to be chosen from:
•Fundamentals of Continuum Mechanics
•Mathematics of Natural Phenomena
•Perturbation Techniques and Asymptotics
•Numerical Partial Differential Equations
•Fundamentals of Financial Mathematics
•Operations Research 2
