Course summary

Mathematics is the universal language unifying many aspects of our lives. Whether it’s making mobile phones secure, predicting the weather, optimising investments in financial markets or helping an endangered species survive, mathematics is key. Our world is becoming increasingly data-driven, so the demand for mathematicians with expertise in handling and interpreting data continues to grow. This maths course provides a solid grounding in the methods of modern mathematics and will uncover the intrinsic beauty of mathematical ideas. You’ll be taught by active researchers and practising mathematicians, ensuring you are exposed to current real-world problems, methodologies, and industry- standard techniques and software. In your final year, you have the option to study a project on a topic of your choice under the guidance of a lecturer. Our lecturers will provide you with a supportive environment during your studies allowing you to focus on fulfilling your potential. You’ll become an expert in logical thinking and develop refined problem-solving skills, which are highly valued by employers. This maths course will equip you with the skills to pursue a career in industry, government institutions, academia, or the teaching profession. Our maths degrees are based at the Treforest campus. USW Treforest is surrounded by green open spaces.
