Course summary

On the PhD in Mathematics of Systems you will learn to apply new mathematical techniques to solve real-world systems challenges.

Course Overview

Would you like to use novel mathematics to tackle real-world problems? Our research bridges two cross-cutting methodological themes that are central to complex multi-scale systems prediction: modelling across spatial and temporal scales; and hybrid modelling integrating complex data and mechanistic models. These themes pervade real-world problems in many areas of active research and will shape mathematical and computational modelling for the coming decades.

Research Themes

The Mathematics of Systems CDT main research themes are:

  • Quantitative biomedical research
  • Mathematical epidemiology
  • Socio-technical systems
  • Advanced modelling and optimisation of industrial processes.

Warwick academics can supervise thesis research in a wide range of topics in mathematics and its applications. In addition, all PhD projects are expected to be co-supervised by an external partner, bringing knowledge, data and experience to the modelling of real-world problems.

Teaching and Learning

The Mathematics for Real-World Systems CDT runs a 1+3 MSc+PhD programme. Entrance is conventionally via the MSc year. Please see the description for MSc in Mathematics of Systems for more information or visit the MathSys CDT website. As well as the taught MSc component, the PhD years include transferrable skills modules as well as summer schools and reading groups. PhD students are also encouraged to audit relevant courses.
