Programme structure

In the Autumn and Spring semesters, you will take masters-level courses in both advanced mathematical modelling and computation, in addition to the core interdisciplinary skills needed for a career in this field. In the summer you will undertake a research skills project, working with research leaders in a related area such as biosciences, systems biology, chemical engineering or medicine, alongside mathematics and computation. This will provide directly relevant training for a career in academic, industrial or clinical research, for example biotechnology, industrial engineering or the pharmaceutical industry. A key component will be training specifically in multidisciplinary research and communication, a vital skill for whichever career path the MSc leads you to

Career opportunities

This course is tailored to train students for careers in scientific research, and for employment in a wide range of industrial contexts, for example biotechnology, industrial engineering or the pharmaceutical industry. There is a considerable need for scientists with a strong mathematical and computational background who can communicate with experimental scientists; this MSc will provide you with specialised training, and through your research skills project, evidence that you can work in this multidisciplinary context.

Further transferrable skills developed through this course include team-working, oral and written presentation, problem-solving and time-management, particularly developed through the summer research skills project. Additional careers support is available through the School of Mathematics and from the University’s career support team.
