  • 12 months
    Duration
University rank #222 (QS) Loughborough, United Kingdom
The Industrial Mathematical Modelling MSc at Loughborough University is designed to help you develop the mathematical modelling skills and techniques increasingly highly sought after within industry and commerce.

Overview

The Industrial Mathematical Modelling MSc at Loughborough University enables you to explore mathematical models of real world processes and their formulation, with a strong emphasis on how these techniques can be applied in industry.

A key feature of the Industrial Mathematical Modelling programme is working in small groups to solve real life problems using mathematical models, such as estimating the loss of heat from a warehouse. Another unique aspect is our Advanced Reliability module, designed to show how statistics can be applied to industrial problems to support the development of stategies for the replacement of engineering parts before they break.

Elsewhere on the Industrial Mathematical Modelling programme, you will also develop skills to solve partial differential equations and learn the basic principles behind, for example, the finite element method, which is heavily used in industry for solving structural problems.

Academic Requirements

You need the following GPA score:

Required score: Upper Second Class

Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to Upper Second Class on the UK Honour scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on the UK Honour scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

General Requirements

  • An honours degree (2:1 or above) or equivalent overseas qualification in mathematics or an engineering or science subject with a high mathematical content.
