Introduction

The MSc Applied Mathematics & Theoretical Physics offers broad opportunities for future employment in research, development, predictive modelling and risk assessment, and informatics related industry sectors. At UCD, this MSc programme is developed in close connection with the Simulation Science and Computational Physics specialties, offering students both a robust training in computational methods on top of a solid theoretical and mathematical foundation.

The programme is aimed at students with a strong background in Physics, Mathematics or a related Natural Science, who wish to learn state-of-the-art mathematical models and methods, applied to quantitative analysis of a broad range of physical phenomena.

Vision and Values Statement

This MSc program provides a positive experience of applied mathematics and theoretical physics with state-of-the art applications ranging from cosmology to nanoworld. We encourage/educate our students to become active, lifelong and autonomous learners with good prospects of employment in economic sectors requiring analytical skills. Our students, who should have a strong background in the physical sciences or a relevant engineering field, will become well-grounded in the fundamentals of modern Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics topics with an appreciation of more specialised knowledge and the current frontiers of research. Our learning environment emphasises hands-on theoretical and computational work via a research module that is a large part of the MSc programme, in addition to in-class, project and problem-solving work. Our students will be endowed with professional values including scientific integrity and ethical behaviour.

Nature of the learning environment

The environment is research-based, with a deep level of expertise available to the students in their chosen field. The students will experience an environment where cross-disciplinary, industry and international connections are rich.

Students will have access to courses aligned to a nationally unique range of research expertise across a broad range of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics fields, including Fluid Dynamics, General Relativity, Statistical Physics, Quantum Field Theory, Condensed Matter Theory and Theoretical Astrophysics.

Teaching and Learning Approaches

The programme culminates in a research project. In reaching this point, the student is supported in their learning through lectures, practical/laboratory work, small project work, seminars, and the advancement of team and self-directed skills.

Programme outcomes

The graduates from this programme should be familiar with a range of advanced analytical and numerical methods and data analysis technologies (including computational programming languages, software packages, methods and algorithms) and interfacing between physical-based modelling and applied (e.g., biomedical or material science) systems.
