The Brunel Integrated PhD combines PhD research with a programme of structured research, professional and subject training. The programme includes taught elements over all years which cover generic skills (professional skills, career planning), research methods, and discipline-specific modules; the main research areas are: applied mathematics; mathematical physics; computational optimisation and modelling; operational research; numerical analysis and computation.
Research areas: numerical solution of ordinary differential equations; numerical solution of partial differential equations; dynamical systems; non-linear algebraic systems and optimisation; integral equations; finite-element analysis; advanced mathematical modelling; financial optimisation in practice; mathematical programming and optimisation.
An upper 2nd Class degree or a Master's degree of a UK university (or recognised equivalent UK or overseas qualification) in a relevant subject; other qualifications considered on an individual basis.
