Computational and Applied Mathematical Sciences
Big Data! Those two words describe one of the new hot topics in mathematical sciences. The Computational and Applied Mathematical Sciences degree programme will give you access to this, and other fast growing areas of computational mathematics and statistics.
The gap between the demand for graduates with computational mathematical science skills and the supply is predicted to increase, and there is no doubt that a graduate with good skills in this area will be in demand. This is an area of mathematical science that will open up a new world to you.
Broadly, UC's research experts examine tool building in the form of the development and analysis of algorithms and methods for numerical computation. Areas of current research include:
- Numerical optimisation
- Approximation theory
- Algorithms for surface approximation
- Inverse problems
- Numerical linear algebra
- Rigorous set processing
See research projects being conducted by the School of Mathematics and Statistics.
This major draws on courses which apply mathematics and computing. In addition to the required mathematics courses, a choice of courses from other subjects may be required.
The requirements at undergraduate level to allow progression to postgraduate level are:
- 45 points from MATH 201, 202, 203, 220, 240 and 270, including MATH 201 and at least one of MATH 202 or 203.
- 60 points from MATH 301-394.
- An additional 30 points from MATH 301-394 and STAT 301-394 or other approved courses.
- 45 points from other approved courses at the 200-level or above. These would normally come from CHEM, COSC, MATH, PHYS, STAT or Engineering courses.
Postgraduate study can bring many career benefits eg, specialist skills and enhanced knowledge, entry into specific occupations, higher starting salary/progression rates, research capability/achievement, and evidence of high academic attainment/self-discipline.
