What you'll learn on the course
This programme is designed to train aspiring research scientists and budding IT professionals who wish to rely on numerical proficiency to further their career goals. The programme consists of a training aspect of taught components (3 modules approximately during the first 3 months) and a significant interdisciplinary research project centered towards computational mathematics (9 months)
Research topics are chosen by students from a list of topics mirroring the computational expertise of the Mathematics group and the newly founded Systems Analytics Research Institute at Aston, with Computationally oriented projects in for example, biology, optimization, pattern analysis and physics as well as finance. The projects are supervised by academics from the Mathematics group and the Systems Analytics Research Institute at Aston.
The MSc integrates a taught component of three modules over approximately three months (30 credits) with a substantial individual research project lasting nine months (150 credits)
- Computational Mathematics (10 Credits)
- Research skills and Professional Development (10 Credits)
- Specialist/Technical Research Skills (10 Credits)
Exemption from these modules may be arranged through APL or APEL, provided this is done prior to enrolment.
Students will have the opportunity to carry out a research project in collaboration with industry and through this learn about the application context of technology and the interaction between research and business.
