Guest Lectures From Industry

Study Physics in Lincoln

To keep our Mathematics and Physics programmes relevant to the key industries that our graduates will one day end up in, we invite industry speakers to give special lectures on how they use mathematics and physics in their job. Our modules “Industrial and Financial Mathematics” and “Industrial and Econophysics” aim to expose students to some of the many ways in which physics and mathematics is used to solve “real world” problems. The modules are intended to showcase some of the industrial applications of physics and mathematics with a focus on the finance sector towards the end. Invited industry specialists give the lectures for the industrial, introducing mathematical techniques and physics they have not encountered before. Unlike traditional modules where content is delivered and then assessed, the industrial modules focuses on the ability to self teach complex and unfamiliar mathematics and physics. This simulates a more realistic approach to solving a…
