Postgraduate Course: MIGS: Extended Project (MATH12023)
|School||School of Mathematics
||College||College of Science and Engineering
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 12 (Postgraduate)
||Availability||Not available to visiting students
|Summary||You will work on your own on an extended project under the direction of one or more members of staff. You will give a very brief presentation that outlines your topic at the Residential Symposium, a progress report presentation after a few weeks and the final submission of the written report (a properly structured document) and the final oral presentation is at the end of July. You will create a poster summarising your extended project work which will be displayed at the annual MAC-MIGS Colloquium.
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.
