In year 1 you will be introduced to the construction and analysis of mathematical models of a variety of problems and processes arising in business, finance, biology, physics, and engineering. You will study elements of mechanics in which first and second order differential equations are used togain insight and understanding of some significant natural systems. You will also learn how to make use of mathematical computer software for solving mathematical problems.

In years 2 and 3 you will take modules from a selection of topics in applied mathematics. You will improve your computing skills by studying a high level programming language and will learn how to use transform and Fourier methods to solve problems in applied mathematics. You will also systematically study phenomena which occur in dynamics systems, and techniques of control. These skills are constantly applied to real-world problems from many different disciplines.

In year 3 you will also undertake a project of guided literature reading, where you will learn to understand some of the current research literature in the area of applied mathematics.

See the Book of Modules for Applied Mathematics for further details.
