Part III (MMath/MASt)

The courses in the Michaelmas Term are intended to provide a broad educational background for any student preparing to start a PhD in fluid dynamics. The courses in the Lent Term are more specialized and in some cases build on the Michaelmas Term material; this will be outlined in the description below.

Please find here the introduction and pre-requisites for the Continuum Mechanics subject area.
