Programme overview

Engineering mathematics is the art of applying mathematical and engineering principles to complex, real-world problems across areas as wide-ranging as artificial intelligence, ecology, medicine, physics, social media and sustainability.

With this MSc, students are fully embedded within an engineering faculty, benefiting from unrivalled access to a broad range of industrial collaborations and pioneering research.

Spanning engineering, mathematics and computer science, this programme would suit graduates from any related discipline who would like to become versatile at solving multi-disciplinary challenges.

Upon completion, you will meet the increasing demand from the industrial, government and service sectors for maths-savvy graduates who can work across traditional boundaries and drive high-tech innovation. From designing formula one cars, to biomedicine and development of renewable energy technologies, our engineering graduates go on to a wide range of exciting careers.

Programme structure

The units are organised around three key strands: engineering, computational science and mathematical and statistical training.

In order to tailor to the needs of the student, each strand is agreed based on previous experience and prior learning. Based on taught content, appropriate units are aligned with each strand.

Cross-references are carefully designed throughout the three stands to ensure that all graduates obtain a uniform level of background knowledge and appropriate specialisation.

Teaching consists of core units on:

  • Applied statistics
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Engineering mathematics
  • Nonlinear dynamics and chaos
  • Numerical methods
  • Optimisation theory and applications
  • Partial differential equations

Real-world problem solving is integral to each unit and spans many different application areas - from robotics and social media to medicine and environmental modelling. Problems come from our industrial collaborators or address challenges in current research. 

Having successfully completed the taught units, you will prepare a 60-credit MSc thesis during the summer term, to be submitted at the end of the academic year.
