Advances in many fields from science, engineering and economoy will be driven by those skilled in handling large parallel machines and data sets with extreme volume or velocity. The Durham MSc in Scientific Computing and Data Analysis (MISCADA) trains students in these areas, equips them with essential professional, entrepreneurial and collaborative skills, and gives them the opportunity to apply all acquired knowledge to challenging, state-of-the-art problems from a computational specialisation area. The program targets an audience with excellent technical skills (in particular mathematics and programming) and makes the students understand how modern scientific computing and data analysis tools work.

The interdisciplinary program is coordinated by the Scientific Computing group in Durham’s Department of Computer Science, ranked no 5 in UK by the Complete University Guide.

Some testimonials of students (various languages incl Chinese, German and English)

The other major selling point of the programme is that it brings together one specialisation area with the latest data analysis and simulation technologies. Our student cohort brings along expertise and interest in both the selected application (specialisation) area plus the computer and mathematical sciences used therein.
