Summary on Grant Application Form
We are seeking support to develop a suite of modules in Mathematics and Statistics to provide engineering graduates with transferable, modern mathematical skills at a high level. We are applying for funds to develop the content and delivery process of these modules, to advertise widely and to attract participants from technology-based companies, which form a vital part of the UK economy, particularly in Scotland. We already have substantial support from BAE Systems, who are conunitted to use these modules as training for employees in Edinburgh on a day-release basis. Any course materials developed will be available for use in whole or part by the various masters courses and MTPs already taught by our engineering departments, and will be open to suitably qualified PhD students across the University. Once converted to distance mode, the courses will be available throushout the UK.
