What will I learn?

Course description

This course draws on cutting edge expertise from three Schools in our College of Science and Engineering, and will provide you with practical skills in computation in a range of languages and professional software. You will also develop a clear understanding of the theory of common numerical modelling methods.

What's the difference?

If you complete the modules but not the project, you will qualify for a Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip). If you complete only some of the modules, you may qualify for a Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert).

Teaching and learning

Teaching is a combination of lectures, workshops, independent work, group and team work, supervised study and directed reading. Assessment is a mixture of written exams, marked assignments, assessed problems, oral presentations and written project reports.

Careers and employability

The top students on the course will have the opportunity, when choosing a project topic, to select a project offered by one of our industrial partners.
