"Welcome to Integrated Science! New for 2019, this is the course that we, your instructors, all wish that we could have done as undergraduates. If, like us, you are excited by science, and especially by the problem of how life works, please read on!"
Professor Rob Cross, Course Director
Why study Integrated Science at Warwick?
- Driven by active researchers
- Supports students to conduct original research into unsolved scientific problems from day one
- “Anti-disciplinary” – incorporates principles from biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics and computing, and teaches students to move confidently across disciplinary boundaries
- Equips students with practical experimental skills and analytical thinking skills needed to ‘do’ science
- Blends classes, team-based problem solving, original lab-based research and individual study
- Incorporates MATLAB and Python e-labs, equipping students with essential computer coding skills
Our primary goal with this innovative course is to strengthen you as a scientist, by training you across disciplines. Using a blend of classroom instruction, team-based problem solving (problem-sets), team-based laboratory work and individual study, we will teach you to think creatively and quantitatively, formulate unsolved problems, and
work to create effect solutions by drawing freely on the methods and perspectives of different scientific disciplines.
