Industrial and Financial Mathematics module in Lincoln

MonteCarlo

Mathematics students in their second year gave great feedback on their Industrial and Financial Mathematics module. This module is intended to showcase some of the industrial applications of mathematics, with an emphasis in the second half on finance.

A series of guest lectures were given by people from industry who use mathematics in their line of work. Talks were given by people who have worked in:

  • Tech (Google)
  • Banking (Goldman Sachs and Santander)
  • Logistics (SYSTRA)
  • Engineering (Siemens)
  • Medicine (University Medical Center Groningen)

Students also had to produce a report for a simulated food-tech start-up in which they used big data analytical techniques to help launch a new product line.
