Complex Systems Modelling - from Biomedical & Natural to Economic & Social Sciences MSc

Course Introduction

The Complex Systems Modelling ? from Biomedical & Natural to Economic & Social Sciences MSc course will teach you to apply mathematical techniques in the rapidly developing and exciting interdisciplinary field of complex systems and examine how they apply to a variety of areas including biomedicine, nature, economics and social sciences. This research-led course is suitable for graduates who wish to work in research and development in an academic or industrial environment.

Description:

The Complex Systems Modelling MSc is an innovative study course that explores the latest research in the rapidly developing and exciting interdisciplinary field of complex systems.

Modern societies rely on a broad range of infrastructures, institutions and technologies, and their complexities have grown dramatically in the recent past. Consequently, there is a rapidly expanding demand for expertise in complex systems modelling as a foundation for understanding, maintaining and further developing such systems.

The course offers you the choice to study either full or part-time. You must take a combination of required and optional modules totalling 180 credits to complete the course. If you are studying full-time, you will complete the course in one year, from September to September. If you are studying part-time, your course will take two years to complete. You will study the required modules and some optional modules in the first year, and a further selection of required and optional modules including the complex systems modelling project in your second year.

You will learn advanced mathematical tools which allow you to study complex systems as emerging in natural, biomedical, economic and social sciences. We also offer the opportunity to study an additional zero-credit module called Foundations for Complex Systems Modelling & Cross-disciplinary Approaches to Non- equilibrium Systems which is designed as a refresher module covering vital mathematics and physics skills.

Career prospects:

Career opportunities in complex systems modelling are vast and fast growing, spanning a huge range of industrial, public and governmental sectors, as well as academic posts within Complex Systems research groups.
