Course summary

You’ll have access to our computing facilities, which should enable you to gain experience using mathematical software packages, like MAPLE and MATLAB. You’ll also receive one-to-one assistance from Sigma (subject to availability), Coventry University’s Centre for Excellence in Mathematics and Statistics Support. You’ll be taught by active researchers in applied mathematics and statistics with expertise in fluid dynamics, complex systems (staff are subject to change), who will share their research findings through teaching and supervising projects, as well as offering opportunities to apply for summer research internships (subject to competitive application and availability). Past students have, for example, undertaken internships analysing social networks of past cultures through ancient and mythological narratives or studied lattice models of polymers. We encourage you to adopt an international perspective with opportunities to conduct Online International Learning (OIL) activities with students from around the world, participate in field trips overseas or spend a year studying abroad in Europe, America or Australia*.
