Course summary

Research profile

Our research-active academics are involved in cutting-edge research covering a range of topics including applied analysis, computational mathematics, continuum mechanics and mathematical physics, financial mathematics, operational research and applied statistics. We address problems of real biological or engineering importance and investigate the underlying mathematical and phenomenological processes. There is a strong emphasis on the development of innovative analytic, asymptotic, computational and hybrid methods. Our research also focuses on random matrix theory, quantum information theory, mathematical foundations of quantum mechanics, mesoscopic disordered systems, statistical mechanics, graph theory, matroid theory, and infinite-dimensional Riemannian geometry, algebraic geometry and orthogonal polynomials.

You will benefit from this integrated PhD programme immensely if you want to:

  • receive a more much guided and hands-on supervision of your learning and research process, especially if you come from more traditional teaching cultures
  • increase your chances for timely completion of your PhD programme in comparison to students taking traditional route PhD, cutting down the expenses associated with prolonged study
  • access to tailored, highly specialist research training not available as part of the support provided to traditional route PhD students
  • maximise your chances for a successful research analysis by applying practical assignments and training which are part of the integrated PhD directly to the research you do for your thesis
  • receive an official Postgraduate Diploma in Research in addition to your PhD award to certify the completion of skills training which may be required by employers in some countries if you wish to pursue an academic career

Careers and your future

Tailored careers support is offered to all our current PhD students and for up to 3 years after you complete your research at Brunel. We help you to actively engage in career planning and managing your personal development right from the start of your research. Our careers provision includes online advice, one to one consultations and a range of events and workshops.

In addition, where available, you may be able to undertake some paid work as we recognise that teaching and learning support duties represent an important professional and career development opportunity.
