An interdisciplinary course that uniquely combines aspects of psychology, mathematics and computer science; Computational Neuroscience aims to better understand brain fun
Understanding the human brain is one of the grand challenges of science and is important for basic science, health, and technology.
An interdisciplinary course that uniquely combines aspects of psychology, mathematics and computer science
Computational Neuroscience aims to better understand brain function, develop better analysis tools for neural data and inspire artificial intelligence algorithms
A number of developments make this course particularly relevant:
Recent successes in machine learning are based on analogies with animal brains, i.e. artificial neural networks; these successes have put the analysis of brain computation at the forefront once more
In particular study of the biological brain is being considered as a way to resolve some outstanding issues in AI, such as learning with a limited number of samples, generalisation, and the development of explainable AI
The study of the brain is currently undergoing a revolution as computational models are becoming powerful and accurate enough to complement experimental approaches
Revolutions in experimental recording methods necessitate the use of advanced analysis methods to deal with the enormous volume of data that these methods can produce

How you'll be taught
This Masters programme will foster a new generation of scientists who will be trained in both neurocomputational modelling as well as cognitive neuroscience.
Understanding the relationship between brain, cognition and behaviour is one of the main challenges the scientific community is currently facing. Which neural processes underlie “free” decisions, the formation of new memories, the emergence of conscious experience? Computational cognitive neuroscience is a young and exciting discipline that tackles these long-standing research questions by integrating computer modelling with experimental research.
This Masters programme will foster a new generation of scientists who will be trained in both neurocomputational modelling as well as cognitive neuroscience.Its core topics include theory and practice of biologically constrained models of neurons, cortical circuits, and higher cognitive functions (memory, decision making, language), and fundamentals of cognitive neuroscience (brain mechanisms and structures underlying cognition and behaviour, as well as modern neuroimaging and data analysis techniques). The programme is suitable for students from a variety of disciplines (including psychology, computing, neuroscience, engineering, biology, maths, physics, or related subjects), and students with no prior programming experience are welcome. Thanks to the highly multidisciplinary and cutting-edge nature of the programme, graduates of this Masters will acquire a unique set of complementary skills that will make them extremely competitive in securing research or analyst positions in both academia and industry....

This is a fast-track conversion course for graduates from disciplines unrelated to construction and real estate, which leads to Chartered Surveyor status.
This course develops the contract and cost management skills needed to become a quantity surveyor, a role that sits in the heart of the construction process. You will learn about the various procurement options available in the UK and overseas, and develop approaches that seek to maximise client value while reducing the cost of a construction project.
The course offers:
the MSc course is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
the chance to go on an international field trip, included in your fees. Recent destinations have included Frankfurt and Prague.
part-time, full-time and CPD study options are available.
there are opportunities to work with a mentor from industry.
the opportunity to undertake work placements and an internship as part of your studies.

Due to high levels of interest in 2018/19 applications for this programme will close on Sunday 17th June. Applications received beyond this date will be considered on an individual basis and applicants may be placed on a waiting list should further places become available.
The MSc in Conservation and International Wildlife Trade provides you with the knowledge base to address trade regulation and management at both the national and international levels.
International wildlife trade is big business and ranges from high volume timber and fishery products to the more traditional wildlife products from endangered species used in horticultural, pet, leather and medicinal trades. International trade and over-use are implicated in the decline of around one-third of threatened species....

MSc Bioinformatics and Computational Genomics
Bioinformatics is developing software and algorithms to interrogate 'Big Data', now at the heart of medical research, discovery and practice.
The past decade has seen enormous advances in molecular and biomedical technology resulting in the ‘omics’ revolution.
You’ll be looking at the big data to find patterns that others can’t see, gaining access to data sets that have not yet been analysed.
You’ll discover results that translate to the real world, through commercialisation or clinical trials to tackle diseases.
You’ll use your vision to find unique solutions to medical problems, and by the end of the degree, you’ll be ready to work within a multidisciplinary team with bioinformaticians, biologists and clinicians....
The University of Nottingham - Faculty of Engineering
This course brings high-quality surveying and positioning and geospatial information analysis and management together.
With the continuous demands of the construction world and the development of infrastructure to support communication, utilities and transport there is a need for the expertise of the engineering surveyor.
The specialist skills and knowledge of the engineering surveyor are often needed from the initial planning stages right through the construction stage to the end of a project. The role of the engineering surveyor does not stop then, as monitoring for the short or long term movement or deformation of infrastructure, buildings or ground may be needed for safety or other purposes
This course has developed from the previously successful MSc courses offered at the University of Nottingham in the fields of surveying, geodesy and more generally geomatics....
