    Programme Description

    The Bristol Centre for Complexity Sciences (BCCS) is a highly interdisciplinary centre for training and research funded by the EPSRC. The four-year postgraduate course aims to integrate, strengthen and expand the knowledge and expertise in different areas of science and engineering to form a unique training environment for the most promising students from the UK and overseas.

    Complexity Science deals with large networks of many smaller elements that interact to produce behaviour that cannot be predicted by looking at just one or two elements. You will be exposed to cutting-edge theoretical techniques (in mathematics, statistics and computer science) as well as lectures in relevant application areas. The integrated four-year programme consists of a one-year taught MRes degree followed by a three-year PhD degree, jointly supervised by experts from both the 'theoretical' and 'application' areas.

    The Centre brings together expertise from across the University, in Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Civil Engineering, Computer Science, Earth Sciences, Electrical Engineering, Engineering Mathematics, Geography, Mathematics, Neuroscience and Physics. It is anticipated that you will have a background in one of these areas with strong mathematical and computational skills.
