Developments in mathematical optimisation and statistics have revolutionised system engineering and has created an urgent need, for a new generation of mathematicians trained to work at the frontiers of mathematical optimization, statistics and their applications to engineering, healthcare, finance and economics.

In recent years, new developments in mathematical optimisation and statistics have revolutionised system engineering, information science, signal and image processing, statistical error correction and cryptography.

This has created urgent need, in both academic research and in practical implementation, for a new generation of mathematicians trained to work at the frontiers of mathematical optimization, statistics and their applications to engineering, healthcare, finance and economics.

This programme is both technical and pragmatic. You will acquire the ability to integrate state-of-the-art knowledge of statistics and optimisation to address, analyse and provide a rational appraisal of a given problem in different professional contexts.

This is a multidisciplinary field that involves the study of mathematical optimisation techniques, operational research methods, programming and statistics with their applications to economics, finance, medicine, industrial management, natural sciences and others.

Researchers at the University of Birmingham have recently shown how the modern optimization and statistical methods are successfully applied to engineering design, financial and economical data analysis, meta-analysis, economic equilibrium, network communication, and combinatorial optimization.

Why study Mathematics, Operational Research, Statistics and Econometrics (MORSE) Masters at Birmingham?

  • Develop your mathematics, business, economics, science or engineering background within a broad range of professional areas in quantitative analysis
  • Acquire the ability to integrate the knowledge of statistics and optimisation to address, critically analyse and provide a rational appraisal of a problem
  • Learn to use software packages to perform statistical analysis and empirical studies
  • Focus on finding optimal solutions to optimisation problems in broader and challenging environments
  • Study at the School of Mathematics which is internationally recognised for the quality of our research in various fields

Course details

You will take masters-level courses in both advanced theory and applications of operational research, optimization and statistics, as well as the courses in modern computational techniques and data analysis.

You will also undertake a research project, working with research leaders in optimization, statistics and econometrics, alongside mathematics and computation. These courses and project will provide relevant training in quantitative analysis together with multidisciplinary research and communication, a transferable skill, for whichever career path the MSc (MORSE) leads you to.

Employability

The programme produces highly qualified students in statistics, operations research and econometrics with applications to economics and business management. It also provides ideal preparation for a career in economics, health care, finance, banking, insurance, actuarial science, business management, governmental or academic institutions.

Postgraduate study at the University of Birmingham is a chance to learn from world leaders in their fields. This guarantees you a first-class learning experience, leading to a qualification that is respected the world over and making you an attractive prospect in a very competitive job market.

The course modules and research project will provide you with essential training in quantitative analysis together with multidisciplinary research and communication, a transferable skill which you will find valuable whatever career path you

pursue. Our graduates benefit from a growing global demand for these skills in sectors including economics, medicine, finance, insurance and industrial management.
