Course description

Course description

Due to the ongoing impact of the global pandemic we have had to evaluate all of our courses to ensure that we adhere to Government guidelines to protect the health and wellbeing of our staff and students. This means that as we work through these changes the modules, delivery methods and assessments shown, including those shown for future years, are subject to change.

This course draws on cutting edge expertise from three Schools in our College of Science and Engineering, and will provide you with practical skills in computation in a range of languages and professional software. You will also develop a clear understanding of the theory of common numerical modelling methods.

What's the difference?

If you complete the modules but not the project, you will qualify for a Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip). If you complete only some of the modules, you may qualify for a Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert).
