PhD in Mathematical Modeling

Program overview

Please Note: This program is currently recruiting its first class, which will begin in fall 2017.

Mathematical modeling is the process of developing mathematical descriptions, or models, of real-world systems. These models can be linear or nonlinear, discrete or continuous, deterministic or stochastic, and static or dynamic, and they enable investigating, analyzing, and predicting the behavior of systems in a wide variety of fields. Every mathematical modeling enterprise has four aspects: the content of the application field, the mathematical formulation and analysis, the analytical and computational methods (which often involve high-performance computing), and the interpretation and analysis of the results. Through extensive research, graduates of this program will have the expertise not only to use the tools of mathematical modeling in various application settings but also to contribute in creative and innovative ways to solve complex interdisciplinary problems and to communicate effectively with domain experts in various fields....

The School of Mathematical and Computer Sciences is pleased in offering Ph.D. in Computer science by research to students on the Dubai campus.

Initially, those with an interest in undertaking a project in the broad area of computing are encouraged to apply. This may include different research topics as outlined in program content.

Research

Ph.D. study on the Dubai Campus will enable students to work with staff and students in Dubai in collaboration with a research group in Edinburgh performing high value and fundamental research in engineering. Students will be working under the supervision of an expert academic supervisor based at the Dubai Campus and supported by a second supervisor in Edinburgh. In addition to time spent doing research project work, students will engage with scientific literature and participate in research group discussions and meetings using electronic communications. On completion of the research project, students spend some six months 'writing up' to produce a final PhD. Once the thesis has been submitted, internal and external academics will examine the student’s work and knowledge of the Ph.D. subject.... [-]

About

The Ph.D. program is a four-year program. The format for the degree consists of coursework and a thesis. The student must pass a written and an oral comprehensive examination within the first two years of the program.

The thesis is the most significant component of work towards the degree and involves original research. The first step for any prospective student is to select a potential supervisor and in consultation with the supervisor, organize a research plan including a possible thesis topic, before admission to the program. Faculty research interests are a critical factor in this preliminary decision.

The department is attempting to expand and strengthen its research activities and graduate students will play an important role in this endeavor. Almost all faculty members in the department receive external or internal funding to support their research programs.... [-]
