MSc Scientific Computing

Duration: 1 year full-time, 2 years part-time

This MSc provides an exciting mixture of fundamental methods and cutting-edge applications of Scientific Computing. Formal training covers software engineering, for both workstations and high-performance computers, and underpinning algorithms. You may then choose a project within one of the many interdisciplinary Scientific Computing research groups at Warwick.

Our interdisciplinary focus gives you access to a breadth of expertise across the natural sciences at Warwick. You will benefit from more contact time with staff and other students, while also being able to work across departments in accordance with your subject interests.

Applications are welcomed from candidates with a minimum of a 2:i degree in Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics or Statistics. Applicants from closely related disciplines will also be considered.

Recent graduate destinations include the financial and IT sector. A large proportion of our MSc students continue on a PhD programme in a science discipline. Others have since advanced to roles in IT development, modelling and consultancy.

Application Deadline

Places on taught postgraduate taught courses are limited, so you should submit your application as early as possible.

If you are an international applicant and need to obtain a student visa, you will need to leave plenty of time for this process.

For this reason, international applicants must submit their application by 31 July for courses that begin in September. If you are a UK or EU applicant, there are no deadlines for applications to postgraduate taught places.

Please note that some departments will have earlier deadlines; you should check the information in the Application Fact File on each individual postgraduate taught course webpage (you can find a list of taught courses on the A-Z webpage).
