Develop skills in mathematics and theoretical computer science, preparing you for roles that involve computational analysis, modelling and simulation. This joint degree is for you if you enjoy and excel at computing but want to combine that with a very strong interest in mathematics. By combining our computer science degree with pure mathematics, probability and statistics, you’ll be prepared for careers in data science that rely on a combination of mathematical and computational modelling. In the first two years, you’ll study a mix of mathematics and computing units, including computational approaches to finding patterns in data and the generation of computational models. You will also share lectures with Mathematical Sciences students to study fundamental algebra and mathematical analysis. In the final year, you can choose to specialise in areas of numerical computer science and mathematics. Computer scientists with good mathematical knowledge are in great demand worldwide. On graduation, you can apply what you’ve learnt to roles in software development that rely on a combination of mathematical and computational modelling, such as data analysis and forecasting. The Master of Computing (MComp) course provides you with the same core skills and knowledge of the BSc but with a special exposure to research topics and methods.
