University of Leeds has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
Mathematics is the underlying language of computer science, and many of its applications are in the field of computer science. Taught by the School of Computing and the School of Mathematics, this course allows you to study core topics in both subjects while specialising in areas that link the two at Leeds. You’ll explore topics such as logic, algorithms, graph theory, optimisation, scientific computing, big data and complexity science in depth, and consider how they are applied to meet some of the major challenges facing the modern world. Optional modules will allow you to focus on one of three individual specialisms: discrete mathematics, scientific computation, or complex systems.
