Course Summary

As a researcher in the School of Mathematics and Physics, students can benefit from specialist computational facilities, training programmes to enhance research skills, and support from dedicated academic supervisors.

Students are supported and encouraged to submit papers to international scientific journals, present findings at conferences, and share knowledge with colleagues across the University.

Research in the School follows two distinct strands: computational physics/applied mathematics and pure mathematics. Research in applied mathematics is focused on the development of numerical methods and algorithms for solving various equations found in materials science, specifically in the field of nanomaterials. This includes advanced parallelisation and adaptation of the methods for modern supercomputers.

How You Study

Students can benefit from specialist computational facilities, training programmes to enhance research skills, and support from dedicated academic supervisors. Students will be supported and encouraged to submit papers to international scientific journals, present their findings at conferences, and share knowledge with colleagues across the University.

How You Are Assessed

The Mphil is usually awarded based on the quality of the students thesis and ability to present and successfully defend their chosen research topic in an oral examination (viva voce). They are also expected to demonstrate how their research findings have contributed to knowledge or developed existing theory or understanding.
