MSc Mathematics and Foundations of Computer Science
Course Code | 002520
The course focuses on the interface between pure mathematics and theoretical computer science. The mathematical side concentrates on areas where computers are used, or which are relevant to computer science, namely algebra, general topology, number theory, combinatorics and logic.
Examples from the computing side include computational complexity, concurrency and quantum computing. Students take a minimum of five options and write a dissertation.
MSc Mathematical and Computational Finance
Course Code | 000171
The finance sector is a leading employer of mathematics graduates. This MSc trains graduates with a strong mathematical background to apply their expertise to the solution of real finance problems.
The MSc offers a variety of theoretical, numerical and practical programming courses, and students write a dissertation under the supervision of an expert in the field.
MSc in Mathematical Finance (part-time)
Course Code | 000172
This course is offered jointly with the Department for Continuing Education. Please see the entry for Mathematical Finance for details of the course and application procedure.
MSc in Mathematical Modelling and Scientific Computing
Code | 002490
This course provides training in the application
of mathematics to a wide range of problems in science and technology.
Emphasis is placed both on the formulation of problems and on the
analytical and numerical techniques for their solution and the
computation of useful results. In addition to coursework on mathematical
methods, small groups of students develop models for nonstandard
problems and evaluate their potential. The numerical analysis covers
topics in linear algebra, approximation theory, and optimisation.
How to Apply
The deadlines for the MSc programmes (with the exception of the MSc in Mathematical Finance) are 16 November 2012, 18 January 2013 and 8 March 2013. Later applications will be considered if places are still available.
All applications for University
scholarships and other central funding should be made by the
January deadlines. Applications for EPSRC awards must be submitted by the March deadline, see the Mathematics
website for specific instructions
The standard set of materials you should send
with any application to a taught course comprises:
In addition to the standard documents above, applicants to the MSc in
Mathematical and Computational Finance must also submit the results of the MSc MCF Admissions Exercise; for full details and
to download the exercise, please see the Mathematical Finance page of the Mathematics website.
Please follow the detailed
instructions in the Application
for any additional guidance.
