Our second-year PhD student Tim Pollington is currently in India for four months as part of the Newton Bhabha PhD Placement Programme delivered by the British Council.
Complexity Summer Graduation
Winter Graduation 2017
Congratulations to our second MathSys cohort who graduated from their Masters programme on 20th January. Dario Papavassiliou and Leigh Robinson were awarded their PhDs, and the last cohort of Erasmus Mundus Masters in Complex Systems Science students were awarded their degrees from both Warwick and our partner institutions: Ecole Polytechnique, Paris and Gothenburg and Chalmers Universities in Gothenburg. Many students came over from various parts of the world: Italy, France, Germany, Sweden, Kazakhstan and Rwanda, to be at the ceremony. In addition to the official University proceeding, there was also a congratulatory lunch celebration in the Centre where family and friends joined the students in celebrating their success.
First MathSys Masters graduates and Complexity Graduation
Congratulations to our first MathSys cohort who graduated from their Masters programme. Standards were high: eleven received distinctions and three were awarded a merit. Daniel Sprague and Davide Michieletto were awarded their PhDs and the 2013-15 Erasmus Mundus Masters in Complex Systems Science students were awarded their degrees from both Warwick and our partner institutions: Ecole Polytechnique, Paris and Gothenburg and Chalmers Universities in Gothenburg. Several students came over from Europe and one student even flew from South Africa to be at the ceremony and lunch celebration in the Centre. Many family and friends joined the students in celebrating their success.
Funding For New Mathsys CDT Won!
We are pleased to announce that the recent bid for funding for a new Centre for Docotral Training in Mathematics of Real-World Systems has been successful. The Centre will be funded by the EPSRC, BBSRC, and will also be able to boast strong connections and in some cases additional funding from external collaborators. The first students to join the Centre will start on its 1+3 MSc+PhD Programme in September 2014.
