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.

  • You should have, or expect to have, a top degree in mathematics or other theoretical subject (either an MSc, a first class undergraduate degree, or overseas equivalent).
  • You should be self-motivated with good interpersonal skills and want to work in an interdisciplinary and interactive environment.

Background and training structure

Oxford University’s Mathematical Institute has a long tradition of mathematical modelling and scientific computing and these underpin the CDT training.

Twelve fully funded doctoral studentships available for October 2016 start

This four-year 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.

Company partners

The CDT has a large portfolio of partner companies who are central to the design, delivery and support of all our activities. The current list of partners are:

Accelogress, Amazon, AMEC, ATDBio, BBOXX, BP, BT, Camlin, CD Adapco, Culham Centre for Fusion energy, dunnhumby, DuPont, Elkem, Eramet, e-Therapeutics, GE Energy, Government Actuary Department, HR Wallingford, HSBC, IBM, Infineum, Jacobs Douwe Egberts, Lein Applied Diagnostics, Lloyds Banking Group, Mondelez, NAG, Nestlé, NPL, NVIDIA, Oxford Instruments, PA Consulting, Pall corporation, PDS, Roxar, Saint Gobain, Schlumberger, Schott AG, Selex ES, Sharp, Siemens, Smith Institute, TapTools, Teknova, Tesco, Tessella, Thales, USACE, VerdErg, Vodafone, Worldremit
