Mathematical Modelling

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.

Key Fact
This course focuses on the techniques of applied mathematics and on mathematical models of real-world processes.
