‌A postgraduate discipline and a fast-growing area dealing with big data.


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.

Computational and Applied Mathematical Sciences

What will my study involve?

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.
