1st class or high 2:1 first degree in relevant subject area e.g. maths, physics, chemistry, engineering. This Masters degree is part of a 4 year Integrated PhD and Masters Programme and is not available as a stand alone MSc.
School/Unit responsible for the parenting of students and programme:
School of Computing
Examination board through which the programme will be considered:
School of Computing
At the end of the programme students should:
Be able to complement deep expertise in their chosen PhD topic with a broad range of (i) experimental, analytical and modelling skills, and (ii) communication, team-work, leadership and problem-solving skills.
The programme will:
train highly-skilled graduates who are able to complement deep expertise in their chosen sub-discipline with a broad range of (i) experimental, analytical and modelling skills, and (ii) communication, team-work, leadership and problem-solving skills. In achieving this we will also deliver innovative and robust research outcomes across a range of applications, benefiting both end-users and the wider research community. As members of a multidisciplinary centre, our graduates will be exposed to a much broader variety of fluids problems, and the theoretical and experimental tools used to tackle them, than is usual from a traditional UK PhD, equipping them to be future research leaders in industry, environmental laboratories or academia.
