- Develop skills in fundamental aspects of mathematical biology
- Learn about mathematical modelling and dynamical systems theory applied to biology, ecology, neuroscience, synthetic biology and medicine, as well as tools for advanced data analysis.
- You’ll keep abreast of current research happening in this fast-moving field from a range of internal and guest speakers our regular seminar series
- Become proficient in requisite computational tools and techniques with practical sessions including key industry-standard programming languages such as Matlab and Python.
- Undertake an independent research project where you’ll explore your interests in greater depth, with the support of an academic, where you can focus on or contribute to current research.
This degree can lead to research roles in many sectors including working for charities, hospitals and healthcare providers. The skills you will acquire in mathematical modelling can be equally well applied to other fields of study such as understanding climate change or conservation and ecology.
For many students a masters course can also lead to further academic study such as a PhD.
