Announcing the new MSc Financial and Computational Mathematics

The College of Science, Engineering, and Food Science at University College Cork has created a new postgraduate program MSc Financial and Computational Mathematics, a program that “combines mathematical rigour with an emphasis on computational finance and the opportunity to study machine learning, a combination that is currently unique in Ireland.”

Applicants should hold a 2.2 honors degree in a mathematics or numerical related discipline and experience in programming. Should candidates hold a 2.2 honors degree in engineering or physics, they are expected to provide information about their backgrounds in university-level mathematics. According to the program page:

“This course provides an appropriately rigorous treatment of branches of mathematics applicable to financial modelling, including measure-theoretic probability, stochastic processes in discrete and continuous time, and partial differential equations. It is mathematically challenging and requires prior familiarity with multivariate calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, probability, and statistics. You should also have some experience of programming.”

The program is 1-year in duration, starting in September or 2019, and costs Non-EU students €18,000. The closing date for applications is the 15th of June 2019.
