Industrially Focused Mathematical Modelling (EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training)

What is the EPSRC CDT in Industrially Focused Mathematical Modelling (InFoMM)

  • Oxford's EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Industrially Focused Mathematical Modelling (InFoMM) is a partnership between EPSRC, the University of Oxford, and a large number of non-academic partners.
  • The four-year degree will train students in cutting-edge mathematical methods and how to exploit them to solve problems arising in companies.
  • We are aiming to recruit 12 students for the cohort that starts in 2016/17. Full funding is available.

Why study with the InFoMM CDT?

  • The first year of training will give students a broad range of mathematical skills alongside exposure to a wide range of companies and sectors.
  • There is a comprehensive package of transferable skills specifically tailored to enable mathematicians to interact with industry.
  • All project work is supervised by leading academics from the University of Oxford and undertaken in close collaboration with partners.
  • Students completing this four-year research degree will be poised to become leaders either in academia or in industry.

How to Apply

We welcome applications from talented mathematicians and exceptional students from other theoretical science subjects. Funding is available for UK/EU and non-EU students, covering all fees and a grant for living expenses.

Course Content

Students will participate in courses throughout the first year and subsequent years. Including academic courses, Industrial enrichment programs, skills training, and projects.
