Course summary

Overview

Mathematical Biology is an important field of research that is crucial for developing our understanding of living systems. In turn, the complexity of living systems can inspire the development of new mathematical approaches.

The University of Exeter encourages inter-disciplinary working, and we have a growing team of researchers tackling some of the most important current problems in the field. In particular, we collaborate with experts in biology and medicine in order to use mathematics to build a better understanding of disease, thereby improving diagnosis and treatment.

Throughout this course you will develop skills in fundamental aspects of mathematical biology. The core taught courses (Mathematical Biology and Ecology; Mathematical Modelling in Biology and Medicine; Advanced Topics in Mathematical Biology; Computational Nonlinear Dynamics) incorporate mathematical modelling and dynamical systems theory applied to biology, ecology, neuroscience, synthetic biology and medicine, as well as tools for advanced data analysis.

You will keep abreast of current research being undertaken in this fast-moving field via an active seminar program given by internal and visiting speakers. In addition you will become proficient in requisite computational tools and techniques via practical sessions including key industry-standard programming languages such as Matlab and Python. Your degree will culminate in an independent research project through which you can explore your interests in greater depth. You project will be personally supervised by an academic from within the group and will focus on important, current research questions.

Careers

This degree can lead to research roles in many sectors including working for charities, hospitals and healthcare providers. The skills you will acquire in mathematical modelling can be equally well applied to other fields of study such as understanding climate change or conservation and ecology.

For many students a masters course can also lead to further academic study such as a PhD.

All students, current and alumni, receive support from our dedicated Career Zone team who provide excellent career guidance at all stages of the career planning cycle. The Career Zone provides one-on-one support and is the home of a wealth of business and industry contacts. Additionally, they host useful training events, workshops and lectures which are designed to further support you in developing your enterprise acumen.
