BRUNEL UNIVERSITY LONDON

Mathematical Sciences Integrated

Ph.D  |  Placement Year:   No

The Brunel Integrated PhD combines PhD research with a programme of structured research, professional and subject training. The programme typically takes 4 years (compared to 3 years for a non-integrated PhD programme). On successful completion, you will be awarded a PhD with an Integrated Postgraduate Diploma in Research in your chosen subject specialisation.

You will benefit from this programme immensely if you want to:  

  • receive a more much guided and hands-on supervision of your learning and research process, especially if you come from more traditional teaching cultures
  • increase your changes for a timely completion of your PhD programme in comparison to students taking traditional route PhD, cutting down the expenses associated with prolonged study
  • access to tailored, highly specialist research training not available as part of the support provided to traditional route PhD students
  • maximise your changes for a successful research analysis by applying practical assignments and training which are part of the integrated PhD directly to the research you do for your thesis     
  • receive an official Postgraduate Diploma in Research in addition to your PhD award to certify the completion of skills training which may be required by employers in some countries if you wish to pursue an academic career 

Research profile

Considering the expertise and track record of the Department staff, the following areas have been identified as the main research strengths within the Department of Mathematics:

  • Applied Mathematical Analysis
  • Computational Mathematics
  • Continuum Mechanics and Waves
  • Discrete Mathematics and Combinatorics
  • Financial Mathematics and Risk Analysis
  • Geometry
  • Mathematical Physics
  • Operational Research
  • Probability, Statistics and Data Analytics
