Course summary

Mathematic problems occur across a variety of industries, and therefore, a good mathematician is often in demand. On this course we not only teach mathematical theory, but show you how to apply it to solve real-world problems. Whether you see yourself working in the finance sector, in marketing or advertising, or the aerospace industry, we aim to prepare you with the mathematical skills that are needed to work across a range different organisations. Most mathematical modelling now requires computers, and programming is often considered to be an essential skill for a mathematician, which is why we introduce using different software in the early stages of this course. For example, you may use R when working with statistics and data analytics, Python or MATLAB for working with fluid dynamics, and Deep Learning when building predictive models. The integrated master's year adds both breadth and depth to the BSc and covers topics such as:

  • Data analytics
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Engineering applications
  • Robotics
This MMath course follows the same first three years of teaching as the BSc degree, with a fourth year at master’s level. You can transfer from the BSc to MMath, provided you achieve the correct grades. Between your second and third year, you have the opportunity to undertake a placement year, supported by our dedicated Placement Unit, you get chance to put your theory into practice. You may find yourself working in retail helping organisation’s to analyse their customers purchases, or working in healthcare helping to sort and summarise patients’ records, or even working in the food industry to estimate the perfect cooking routine for different products. Professional links and accreditations: This programme is accredited to meet the educational requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation awarded by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications.
