More recently, in this era of ubiquitous and cheap computing power, there has been an explosion in the number of problems that require us to understand processes by modelling them, and to use data sets that are large. Thus the subject of Computational Mathematics has become increasingly prominent.
Consequently there is high demand also for computational modellers and data scientists. This Computational Mathematics programme from The University of Edinburgh concentrates on the overlap and synergy between these fields.
This Computational Applied Mathematics degree from The University of Edinburgh will provide training in the tools and techniques of mathematical modelling and scientific computing, and will provide students with skills for problem solving using modern techniques of applied mathematics.
- The first semester is composed of a combination of compulsory and optional courses. The compulsory courses will build strong applied mathematical and computational foundations. The curriculum is completed with optional courses in related subjects such as statistics and optimization.
- The second semester is again composed of a combination of compulsory and optional courses, building on the skills gained in Semester 1. The compulsory courses include Research Skills, which will prepare you for the Summer Dissertation Project. The optional courses cover a wide range of areas including, for example, data science, high performance computing, and related disciplines such as Informatics and Physics.
