    About the Courses

    Taught Courses
    MSc students must complete the taught phase consisting of 12 modules and an individual project dissertation in a relevant topic. Postgraduate Diploma students are required to undertake the taught phase without the project. Postgraduate Certificate students need complete only 6 modules (including the core modules).

    The course in Defence Simulation and Modelling covers the main principles underpinning synthetic environments, including the underlying models, the hardware and the software and considers their application in a defence context. The course in Military Operational Research covers the principles of operational research and the methods and techniques applicable to industrial and military systems which lead to better decision making. The course in Scientific Computation covers the development of high quality software and the computational solution of problems from science and engineering using numerical methods.

    The Group also runs about 25 specialist short courses each year in operational research, scientific computing, numerical methods and statistics. These courses cater for people from both civilian and military backgrounds and some can be tailored to meet specific needs.

    Research Degrees
    Opportunities for research, leading to the degrees of MSc, MPhil and PhD are available to students with interests in one of the following areas: Mathematical Modelling and Applied Mathematics;Scientific Computation; Operational Analysis/Research; Statistics; Intelligent & Decision Support Systems.
