Mathematics, Operational Research and Statistics Cardiff University

Undergraduate

Awarded by: Cardiff University (Prifysgol Caerdydd)

To many people, statistics means numbers – collecting them and organising them. The field of modern statistics involves much more. It is the source of techniques developed to help managers and researchers to draw reliable conclusions from observations that contain variation.
Operational research techniques, sometimes called management science, provide quantitative decision-making methods complementary to statistical analysis, such as the control of queues, stock, and quality control.
Our four-year MMORS Mathematics, Operational Research and Statistics course offers you the opportunity to delve more deeply into pure and applied mathematics, statistics and operational research than is possible on a BSc course and offers a strong grounding in general mathematical theory and techniques.
Designed for those with an enquiring mind, this degree provides a range of mathematics modules designed to challenge and stimulate your academic curiosity. You will study pure mathematics, statistics and operational research modules linked with optional modules from applied mathematics and computing. In later years, the focus is on advanced applications of modern statistics and operational research theory. Throughout your studies we support you to become an independent learner, able to effectively tackle unseen problems.
This programme is ideal for those who want to gain a deeper understanding of mathematics and develop skills in demand by a range of prospective employers. It will provide you with the skills and knowledge needed to work in research or a range of industries, business and government.
Distinctive Features of the Programme
The programme has several distinctive features:
• There is a strong emphasis on research with students undertaking a substantial project in an area of Operational Research or Statistics of their choice.
• Research active staff are involved in course design and delivery meaning that along with foundational mathematics content, there are also modules that apply the latest statistical ideas and concepts
• The course will provide you with the integrated knowledge and skills to deal with decision making, data driven and big data problems in a range of sectors including business, healthcare and finance
• The course provides excellent preparation for a PhD or employment.
• This programme offers a high degree of flexibility. You have the freedom to decide how your academic experience develops. You can choose to specialise in a particular area or to maintain a wide breadth of learning and explore the interdisciplinary research that underpins much of the School’s success.
