What you'll learn on the course
Skills and Training
This programme combines modules from mathematics, computing and engineering disciplines to provide you with better understanding of contemporary and advanced mathematical and computational techniques, and their practical application across a wide spectrum of industrial disciplines.
This innovative and industrially focused programme is designed to prepare you in solving technological problems using mathematical modelling techniques, and for the set of skills required for mathematically oriented positions in industry.
The programme was designed in consultation with our industrial partners, such that the theoretical and project work are set to encourage and enable you to develop essential technical and transferable skills, including team work, communication and presentation skills. These will give you a clear competitive edge in search for graduate employment.
In the first year of the courses, students study modules in three broad areas: Mathematics, Mathematical Computing and Information Technology.
