4 year doctoral course. If you are an outstanding student who wants to expand your mathematical knowledge and are excited by the prospect of learning how to apply your talents to Industry problems, then this is the course for you. You will be taught and supervised by research staff at the Mathematical Institute and work in close collaboration with our company partners.
Oxford University’s Mathematical Institute has a long tradition of mathematical modelling and scientific computing and these underpin the CDT training.
This four-year doctoral degree builds on that tradition with an intensive first year of training with courses in mathematical modelling, scientific computing, continuum methods, and discrete methods alongside a range of short courses that provide insight into industrial challenges and methodologies.
Two 10-week mini-projects will be undertaken focused on particular industrial problems with at least one involving an internship at one of our partners.
A mathematical research project focused on, and motivated by, a company challenge will be undertaken for the final three years. Research topics will include: differential equations, asymptotic methods, numerical analysis and scientific computing, fluid and solid mechanics, discrete mathematics, applied mathematical finance, and data analytics.
