Overview

Financial engineering is a cross-disciplinary field combining financial and economic theory with the mathematical and computational tools needed to design and develop financial products, portfolios, markets, and regulations. Financial engineers manage financial risk, identify market opportunities, design and value financial or actuarial products, and optimise investment strategies.

For students with a good background in mathematics and statistics, this new Master of Financial Engineering (MFEng) will equip you with industry-level skills and knowledge, and provide opportunities to apply those skills. By directly linking real-world problems in financial engineering to an underlying theoretical framework, graduates will be capable of high-level performance in the financial industry.

The MFEng is part of a suite of qualifications for students who want to gain a breadth and depth of technical skills and knowledge across the key disciplines of finance and economics, mathematics and statistics, and computer science and software engineering.
