MATH6119 Case Studies
The first case study is run by a company over one day and focuses on the modelling of a problem that is of current interest. The second case study runs over four days and requires a complex problem to be solved. The techniques used to tackle the problems may be drawn from many of the modules previously studied. The time constraints are such that good teamwork skills are needed to complete the work to a satisfactory standard by the deadline.
