Course description

This immersive, hands-on MSc course will enable students to develop their skills and techniques for a range of science and engineering applications utilising High Performance Computing resources. Students will learn alongside world-class researchers in the Department of Earth Science and Engineering. There will be a strong emphasis on high productivity problem solving using modern computational methods and technologies, including computer code development and parallel algorithms.

Applicants who want to pursue analytical careers in industry geoscience and engineering are a target for this course. Graduates will develop the skills necessary to enter the modern industrial workforce. This MSc will also prepare for your PhD studies in fields such as computational techniques, simulation, numerical modelling, optimisation and inversion, heat transfer, and machine learning applications.

The Applied Computational Science and Engineering MSc programme will ensure that students are able to apply appropriate computational techniques to understand, define and develop solutions to a range of science and engineering problems. You will have the chance to participate in individual and group research projects as well as to write reports and present technical work, developing the project management and numerical skills desired by employers.

Find out more about this new MSc at our Open Day, 21 March 2018. Register now to attend.
