Are you a mathematical problem solver with a related undergraduate degree? Are you interested in applying maths, statistics and computer science to solve complex problems in industry? Then this MSc in Mathematics with Data Science for Industry from University of Bath could be for you.
What you'll study
You’ll work on group projects with other students and have the opportunity to work on a project with one of our industrial partners, as well as study a range of taught units in applied maths techniques, mathematical modelling, data science, machine learning and scientific communication.
Research specialisms could include industrial applied maths, statistics, machine learning, probability, differential equations, dynamical systems, asymptotics, numerical analysis, optimisation, imaging, modelling of waves and fluids, mathematical biology.
A highlight of the course is the opportunity to work on a real project with one of our industry partners. You'll learn the ins and outs of the problem solving process including: identifying the problem and translating it into mathematical language; processing and analysing relevant data; solving the mathematical problem; communicating the results to the client. This may include spending several weeks working in the company. Examples of companies you could work with include The Met Office, Barclays, Emerson Roxar and Raytheon.
Mathematics and data are fundamental to modern science and many industries are looking for graduates who can work across these fields. By gaining skills and knowledge in these areas, a wide range of career pathways will be open to you when you graduate. You will also have acquired the essential foundation for further postgraduate study and research within related fields.
