Course Summary

Many real-world problems are solved by a close-knit combination of mathematical and computational techniques. Our MSci Computer Science and Mathematics degree will equip you with essential skills in both of these areas and their intersection.Our Computer Science and Mathematics course aims to equip students with a powerful set of skills to deal with such tasks, providing an excellent grounding for any career at the interface between computing and mathematics, as well as most careers that are traditionally open to single honours graduates in either of the two disciplines.The course is divided equally into topics from computer science and mathematics so that graduates have a wide range of experience in both areas. The core mathematics subjects required for business, industry and academia are studied in the first two years of this course, with a particular emphasis on computational methods. The core computer science subjects studied in the first two years have a particular emphasis on mathematical aspects of computer science. The third year of our Computer Science and Mathematics degree involves a project that draws on knowledge of computer science and mathematics as well as allowing the student to taylor their degree to their individual preferences by choosing from a range of optional specialised modules in both subjects.The MSci year provides a broad understanding and study of entrepreneurship, further in-depth mathematical modelling and a significant, research-based individual project conducted with a member of academic staff.
