This unique programme provides numerate graduates with the requisite expertise for the development of a professional career in the profitable and intellectually exciting triangle formed by mathematics, technology and finance.

Financial institutions rely on a functional blend of Mathematics, Technology and Finance to develop, enhance and sustain their competitive edge. Due to new electronic trading platforms, improved risk management and pricing accuracy, as well as the high-performance computing implications of enhanced regulatory requirements, the financial industry is undergoing a second wave of technological transformation.

As a result, there is a high demand from investment banks, hedge funds, financial software companies, brokerage and consultancy firms, and other businesses for graduates who have both excellent mathematical, financial and computing skills.

The Financial Computing MSc is run jointly by the School of Mathematical Sciences and the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science. It is aimed at science and engineering graduates with mathematical exposure and some experience in computer programming. The content of the programme is a combination of technology and financial mathematics. It contains modules related to up-to-the-minute industry challenges such as high performance and GPU development.
