Financial and Computational Mathematics at University College Cork is mathematically challenging and requires prior familiarity with multivariate calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, probability, and statistics. You should also have some experience of programming.
The rapid increase in available computing speeds over the past fifteen years has led to the widespread adoption of sophisticated computational methods for financial modelling and the development of algorithmic approaches to market trading.
Modern finance is increasingly reliant upon advanced mathematical and computational techniques for the modelling of asset and financial market movements, the design and valuation of financial derivatives, and portfolio management.
