Course summary

Mathematics is at the heart of many of civilisation's greatest achievements. Learn how to make an important contribution to the next generation of ideas with a Mathematics degree at Salford. Take your mathematical knowledge and skills further Our three-year BSc (Hons) Mathematics degree is designed to take you to an advanced level and highlight how mathematics continues to make an important contribution to the world around us, be it in science, technology or engineering. Blending applied methods with cutting-edge themes, like nanotechnology, economic stability and artificial intelligence, you’ll build in-demand skills ready to secure a career in industry and business. During your studies, you’ll be encouraged to identify, evaluate and solve real-world problems. You’ll strengthen your knowledge of key principles such as linear algebra, calculus and probability. You’ll learn about mathematical modelling, with relevance to engineering and computing. You'll solve business and industrial mathematics real-world problems. Supportive learning environment Learning takes places in our Peel Park campus, minutes from bustling central Manchester. Our mathematics tutorials are delivered in small groups, where you will examine real-world case studies as you build your skillset and confidence. You will learn in a supportive environment and have access to a dedicated maths drop-in service which runs throughout each semester and is staffed by our experienced tutors. In the 2021 National Student Survey, 90% of BSc (Hons) Mathematics students agreed that staff are good at explaining things [University of Salford analysis of unpublished NSS 2021 data]. Get closer to industry With a focus on your future, you will also have the option to include an industry placement year to develop additional professional and transferable skills, adding ‘with Professional Experience’ to your final degree award. Features • Study the mathematics of graphical transformations and apply this through programming and computing • Identify, define and evaluate real-world problems, using applied mathematics to challenge conventional ideas • Develop a sound knowledge in probability models and distribution theory, building skills in statistics and data analysis • Apply inviscid fluid dynamics techniques to important physical problems, such as hydrodynamics and aerodynamics • Learn to use tensors in the representation of physical phenomena and develop skills in vector calculus
