SummaryDuring the months of June, July and August students will work on their MSc dissertation. This will take the form of an individual supervised research-style academic topic proposed by a staff member of the Applied Mathematics group. The aim of the project is to provide a ┐hands on┐ experience and skills for tackling scientific problems which require both computational skills and a significant mathematical insight. This will include identifying and applying appropriate mathematical and numerical techniques to realistic problems, interpreting the results and presenting the conclusions.

Course description An individual written report will be submitted by a given deadline detailing the methods used, results obtained and corresponding interpretation of the results. The students will be able to discuss the problem with their peers; however, all analyses and written reports must be their own independent work.
