2 Date of programme specification/revision November 2015 Description of Programme Contents MSc in Applied Mathematics is a full-time 12 month/part-time 24 month programme which: Provides high quality education in Mathematics within an environment committed to excellence in both teaching and research. Attracts well-qualified students and provides intellectual challenge in a structure containing an appropriate amount of flexibility, so that students can develop their specialist interests. Teaches and provides the opportunities to learn a core of advanced (Pure or Applied) mathematics, together with a range of more specialised options in Mathematics. Introduces students to a wide range of applications of Mathematics. Equips students with a range of mathematical skills in problem-solving, project work and presentation to enable them to take prominent roles in a wide spectrum of employment and research. Provides further breadth and depth of Mathematics beyond BSc, at a level comparable with the 4 th year of an MSci. Learning Outcomes I. Knowledge and Understanding Upon successful completion of the programme, students will have knowledge and understanding of: The fundamentals of Mathematics as a rigorous living discipline in its own right. The application of Mathematics as a language to a wide range of situations relevant to research and industry. The importance of precision of argument. Problem-solving strategies and methods (including basic computational skills). A selection of subjects which students study in greater depth, according to their interests, leading to current developments at the frontiers of the subject. A particular research topic agreed with a Supervisor, on which the student writes an original account in his or her own words. Teaching/learning methods and strategies: Lectures, supported by an office hour system, are an integral part of course delivery in this programme. Problems classes where appropriate are integrated within the lectures. Students engage in private study to work through set problem sheets as well as lecture content. In the second half of the year (second year for part-time students) students pursue a major research project as stated above. Assessment of knowledge and understanding is through a combination of unseen written examinations, assessed coursework/tests, and written projects/presentations. II. Skills and other Attributes Upon successful completion of the programme, students will develop intellectual, practical, and transferable skills in following areas: A. Intellectual Skills A1. Ability to assimilate and understand a large body of complex concepts and their inter-relationships. A2. Ability to understand mathematical argument and deductive reasoning. Students will learn to use the formal processes of mathematical proof in the development of mathematical theories. A3. Ability to use a structured mathematical/analytical approach to problem solving, and an understanding of the importance of assumptions made and consequences of their violation.

3 A4. Ability to use mathematics to describe and model applications, including approximate solution methods, and to interpret results. A5. Ability to carry out extended investigative mathematical work as an individual. Teaching/learning methods and strategies (Intellectual Skills) All lectures are accompanied by problem sheets which students work through privately. Students are supported by group tutorials/problems classes; these are often integrated within the timetabled lecture periods. There is access to lecturers informally and through a formal office hours system. Assessment of the lecture material is primarily by examination, some with assessed coursework and assignments. A1 and A4 are acquired through the compulsory individual research project. B. Practical Skills B1. Ability to carry out investigative project work as an individual. B2. Proficiency in the use of symbolic and numerical software as part of practical computation. Teaching/learning methods and strategies (Practical Skills): There is a compulsory major research project. Projects are assessed through production of a hard copy thesis and a compulsory oral presentation. C. Transferable Skills C1. Ability to solve open-ended problems and problems with well-defined solutions by formulating problems in precise terms, identifying key issues and trying different approaches in order to make progress. C2. Ability to carry out an independent investigation using textbooks and other available literature, searching databases and interacting with colleagues and staff as necessary to extract important information. C3. Ability to effectively communicate information in a clear and concise manner orally, on paper and using IT. C4. Ability to use analytical skills, paying attention to detail and using technical language correctly, to manipulate precise and intricate ideas, to construct logical arguments. C5. Development of IT skills for communication and analysis. C6. Ability to work independently, use initiative, organize oneself to meet deadlines, plan and execute an extended project. C7. Ability to work and interact constructively with others Teaching/learning methods and strategies (Transferable Skills): Acquisition of C1 is partly through the methods and strategies outlined in A above. Acquisition of C2 and C4 comes through coursework, and through the project; C3 comes through coursework and the oral presentation on the project. Acquisition of C5 is through guided preparation of the project dissertation and presentation. Acquisition of C6 is developed progressively through coursework, through the programme as students take control of their own learning, through private study, project work and classes and finally the research project. Acquisition of C7 is mainly through the compulsory project, where the student should interact with the supervisor to obtain an understanding of the research problem. In this programme these skills are developed to a particularly high level. Students need to plan their pattern of work very carefully since their programme of lectures and enhanced coursework will depend on their particular option choice. Students need to balance this with the demands of the extended project which continues from January until the end of the academic session in September.
