Course summary

Mathematics is integral to applications and equipment we rely on every day. From building computers, to flying a plane or even providing much-needed healthcare practices, mathematics is an indispensable skill for an extensive range of industries. This course enables you to develop highly sought-after logical and analytical thought processes, problem-solving abilities and good computing techniques, which will give you the opportunity to pursue careers in a wide range of fields including finance, credit risk, business intelligence, actuarial science, teaching, and research. Key features This course is professionally accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA), to meet the requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation. It also provides an industry-recognised certification from SAS, the world’s largest independent business analytics company. You will have the opportunity, on selection of specific statistics third year modules, to gain a Joint SAS certificate. Teaching emphasises mathematical concepts and analytical techniques, and includes linear algebra, mathematical modelling with computers, and statistics. Develop your knowledge of industry-standard software such as Minitab, SAS and MATLAB and enhance your professional skills through written reports, phase tests, practical assessments and verbal presentations. Benefit from extra one-to-one support in addition to your studies by attending our Mathematics Learning Centre. Our graduates have gone on to work in a range of fields such as financial management, operational research, logistics, teaching, research and a variety of analytical roles.

Assessment method

The course is taught by friendly, knowledgeable, experienced staff who use a variety of teaching and learning methods, including: lectures, tutorials and computer-based laboratory sessions. The choice of software used is informed by industry practice, thus ensuring that your technical and practical skills are up-to-date and relevant. You will be taught to use professional software such as Minitab, SPSS, SAS and Matlab, and you will work on scenario-based examples allowing you to apply mathematics and develop professional skills via written reports, laboratory assessments and verbal presentations. You will normally attend around 12-16 hours of timetabled taught sessions (lectures and tutorials) each week, and can expect to undertake at least 24 further hours of independent study such as reading around the topic area to supplement your lecture notes, completing tutorial work, computer laboratory exercises and coursework.
