Postgraduate Course: MIGS: Computational Methods for Data Driven Modelling (MATH11220)
|School||School of Mathematics
||College||College of Science and Engineering
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 11 (Postgraduate)
||Availability||Not available to visiting students
|Summary||Topics covered will include-
- Bayesian inference
- Sampling methods
- Uncertainty qualification
The course uses an intuitive hands-on approach with Python as a platform and will include case studies from industrial partners.
Mainly in the first two semesters, opportunities to attend generic skills training will be made available to you and you are encouraged to make the most of this. It may also be possible to arrange specific training to meet a demand if several students are interested in a specific area.
The SMSTC Symposium in Perth includes workshops on tutoring, marking and how to get a PhD.
Computer Tools & Skills I & II micro project report, and write summary of talk in MAC-MIGS Colloquium.
Maths Modelling Camp.
Short presentation at MAC-MIGS Residential Symposium.
Gain experience of writing LaTeX in SMSTC assignments. Store in Training Log.
We expect students to attend general mathematical activities such as seminars, discussions, colloquia and EMS meetings where possible, provided they do not clash with taught courses and other 1st Year MAC-MIGS programme activities.
