MSc Applied Mathematics is a one year master’s level course at the interfaces of mathematics with science, engineering and industry. Interdisciplinary applied mathematics in the School of Mathematics at the University of Birmingham takes place in a thriving outward-facing community with specialities including mathematical biology, fluid mechanics, mathematical finance and various industries.
The School collaborates widely with multiple disciplines, including Biological and Medical Sciences, Chemical Engineering and within industry. In particular, Birmingham is an emerging centre for multidisciplinary Biological Systems Science research, and is in a unique position, being adjacent to one of the largest super-hospitals in Europe, catering for a highly diverse population.
The programme is specifically tailored to develop students from a strong mathematics background into becoming genuinely multidisciplinary scientists. You will have the opportunity to develop your mathematical skills, whilst at the same time being trained in solving real-world problems and working in a team. You will learn how to diversify your skills into other fields, and how to work with research leaders and other students from different disciplines.
