Industry-centred research

Our Financial Mathematics, Operations Research and Statistics (FORS) group of industry-centred research, especially in financial risk management and portfolio optimisation

Our first head of department, Professor John Crank, together with Phyllis Nicolson discovered the world famous ‘Crank Nicolson’ method in 1947. It is still in wide use today

What appealed to me most was how the University offered and encouraged students to do an industrial placement year.
