Choosing an area of research

If you apply to the Master's in Computational Mathematics program online, you will be asked to indicate your interest in one or more of the following areas of Computational Mathematics research. This information  will be used to identify potential supervisors for your research project.

Not all areas of research or supervisors are taking students in any given year. The more areas of research you indicate interest in, the more likely we are able to match you with a potential supervisor.
