MSc Applied Mathematical Modelling and Scientific Computing (AMMSC) PhD Applied Mathematics - UK

University of Greenwich
MSc Applied Mathematical Modelling and Scientific Computing (AMMSC)
PhD Applied Mathematics

This advertisement is aimed at students who wish to consider January entrance. Potential students aiming at distinctive MSc results with migration to PhD studies in applied mathematics are invited to apply. Fundings are not available for students at the MSc level. However students successfully completed the MSc with distinctive results will be selected to continue a PhD research programme, which will then be fully funded, at the Centre for Numerical Modelling and Process Analysis.

Please refer to for a full description of the research activities.
Deadline for application: 30/11/2007.

Application form from

The Masters programme is run by the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Greenwich, within the School of of Computing and Mathematical Sciences. This highly regarded department was ranked 10th in the 2007 UK departmental ranking (,,6734,00.html), and the MSc is taught by members of the Centre for Numerical Modelling and Process Analysis, an award winning research group.

This Masters programme aims to train and equip Honours graduates in engineering, science or mathematics and suitably qualified professionals, with the skills required to understand, and use, applied mathematical modelling techniques and scientific computing technologies in industry. Emphasis will be placed on modelling phenomena governed by the physics of fluid flow, heat transfer, electromagnetics and solid mechanics using CFD, FEA and other software tools.

A core philosophy of the programme is to introduce the students to the concept of multi-physics modelling, where interactions between the governing physics, and hence the relevant solution and software technologies, are important. A strand of the programme is devoted to Fire and Evacuation modelling, for candidates with Fire Safety degree background.

Details of available modules can be found at:

Entry requirements: A good Bachelor fs degree in engineering, physics, mathematics or a relevant related discipline. Those who have substantial commercial or industrial experience but lack formal qualifications should seek an interview with the programme leader.
