The aims of the programme reflect the interdisciplinary nature of the research undertaken in the Hamilton Institute and the varied backgrounds of our PhD students. The major aims of the programme are the following.

- To assist students to acquire the technical skills and knowledge required to successfully complete a programme of research leading to a PhD.
- To enable students to develop a blend of specialist and generic/transferable skills that will assist them in the conduct of their research, the production of their thesis and in their future careers, whether these are within or outside academia.
- To develop a research and training environment that exposes students to leading international research and enables students to develop and practice the skills necessary to present and disseminate their own work both locally and on the international stage.

The objectives of the programme are to:
- To support the conduct of doctoral research through the provision of a suite of specialist technical modules in applied mathematics and computational science that are key to the research themes of the Hamilton Institute.
- To assist students to develop the blend of transferable and generic skills required for future careers within or outside of academia.
- To help students develop written and oral presentation skills through the production of peer-reviewed published work and the delivery of presentations at national and international conferences.

All research degrees are supported by a number of taught modules to be taken over the course of the programme to enhance research excellence and professional training.
