MSc in Applied Mathematical Sciences with Climate Change Impacts ModellingThis is a postgraduate programme aimed at people wishing to further develop their applied mathematics skills while also gaining a detailed understanding of the causes, impacts, mitigation and adaptation measures associated with climate change. We are currently recruiting for entry in September 2009. The programme can be taken full time over 12 months or part-time over a longer period.
(Form here. Deadline End May.) This will be competitive so we would be looking for excellent qualifications. Other funding is also available for Scottish and EU students eg through SAAS.
The MSc ProgrammeClimate Change is recognised as having potentially huge impacts on the environment and on human society. This postgraduate programme aims to provide an understanding of Climate Change causes, impacts, mitigation and adaptation measures from a Life Science perspective in conjunction with developing a wide variety of mathematical modelling skills that can be used to investigate the impacts of climate change.
We offer weekly technical English language support if your first language is not English.
Models have been applied to problems such as understanding the impacts of climate change on terrestrial ecosystems to explaining vegetation stripes in semi-arid regions.
The schedule, complete with information on all of the mandatory and optional courses, can be found here.
The final part of the MSc is an extended project in computational mathematics, giving the opportunity to investigate a topic in some depth guided by leading research academics from our 5-rated mathematics and statistics groups.
The following list is intended to provide a flavour of the types of projects that may be available (click on the project titles for more details).
