Teaching and learning
The programme will be taught using computer classes, problem classes, skills sessions, supervision while undertaking extensive project and dissertation work as well as lectures. Some elements of supported eLearning will be used to refresh mathematical skills as necessary. Assessment will be via course work, computational exercises, projects and written exams. In addition to the mini-projects present in each module, the MSc offers two supervisor-led summer projects to gain exemptions from Core Practice subjects 2 and 3.
The course is so interesting because it combines mathematical theories and their application to many real-world projects.
