Engineering Mathematics

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.

Graduates will be well placed to 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 Fomula One cars, to biomedicine, to the development of renewable energy technologies, our engineering graduates go on to a wide range of exciting careers.

Entry requirements

An upper second-class honours degree (or international equivalent) in an engineering discipline, computer science, mathematics, or in a closely related field.

Course modules

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. Appropriate units are aligned with each strand. In addition, there are cross-references throughout the three stands to ensure that all graduates obtain a uniform level of background knowledge and appropriate specialisation.

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.
