Here are some sample Masters courses available at the University of Cambridge in 2021-22:
Master of Advanced Studies in Mathematics (Pure, Applied, or Mathematical Statistics)
Course length: nine months, taught.
This is both an excellent preparation for mathematical research and a valuable course for those who want further maths training before taking posts in industry or teaching. There are normally about 80 available options, covering an extensive range of pure mathematics, probability, statistics and the mathematics of operational research, applied mathematics and theoretical physics. They are designed to cover those advanced parts of the subjects that are not normally covered in a first degree course.
MPhil in Architecture and Urban Studies
Course length: nine months, mainly research.
This course covers modern and contemporary architecture, and the continued development of cities around the world. Students from a variety of academic backgrounds work in an interdisciplinary environment with urbanists, environmental specialists, architectural theorist and historians, as well as with design practitioners. They explore a wide range of ideas, research methods and theoretical approaches in order to undertake critical and rigorous analysis of issues relating to both architecture and the challenges and complexity of the world’s rapidly changing cities.
MPhil in Energy Technologies
Course length: 12 months, mainly taught.
This course is designed for students who want to help tackle the major challenges faced by the world in meeting current and future demand for sustainable and secure energy supply. They will develop practical engineering solutions, and learn more about the fundamental science and the technologies involved in energy use, electricity generation, energy efficiency, and alternative energy.
The aim of the course is to develop graduates with an overall view of energy engineering, while offering specialisation in a selected area through a research project.
