This diploma comprises four 30-credit modules from a wide choice. Topics include analytic number theory, calculus of variations and nonlinear ordinary differential equations. Extend your understanding of areas of mathematics applicable to science, engineering and technology. It's also the first two stages of our postgraduate mathematics programme. You can achieve the MSc in Mathematics by taking a further two 30-credit modules.
This MSc has the development of holistic thinking skills and appreciation of multiple perspectives at its core. Systems thinking skills are relevant in many different areas. For example, business, engineering, environment, development, health, IT management, and organisation change. Gain insights into the ways other people think about situations. Learn how to apply concepts, tools and techniques developed by systems thinkers. Develop your own ways of thinking in practice, and become aware of how you can act to bring about improvements in complex situations.
This flexible diploma enables computing practitioners to pursue their career goals by gaining advanced knowledge, skills and techniques; and to develop a professional approach to the study and application of computing.
