Course summary

Applied Mathematics at Aberdeen gives you all the benefits of a top-quality mathematical education in a thriving centre of mathematical teaching and research, with focus on how we apply mathematics to better understand our world today. You will have a great choice of courses, individual attention in small classes, and a challenging syllabus which emphasises reasoning, rigour and application.Pure maths is about solving problems and developing theories within mathematics but applied maths is more about using mathematical theory to solve problems in other areas, including science, engineering, physics. A lot of the theory that gets developed by pure mathematicians later becomes useful for applied mathematicians (and engineers, physicists etc.). You will learn from teachers and researchers internationally recognised as leaders in pure mathematics, especially algebra, analysis, geometry and topology and on their application to complex systems, particularly in biology. Mathematics and computational science are used in almost every field of science, engineering, industry, and technology and a degree in Applied Mathematics is the gateway to a wide variety of challenging careers. However, it’s not just about crunching numbers – it is about solving problems and looking for opportunities. Employers are keen to recruit mathematicians because they can think logically and analyse new developments in business, commerce or technology, opening up opportunities especially in the financial sector, computing and information technology, geophysics and data analysis.You will thrive in our friendly and vibrant international community, on our beautiful medieval campus with great facilities for learning, sports and leisure, and the many opportunities to develop the extra skills and interests – and the broader horizons – that will give you the competitive advantage in whichever career path you choose. This Applied Mathematics BSc programme covers the core courses as studied in the pure Mathematics BSc degree. Additional core courses offered specifically in the Applied Maths degree include, Engineering Mathematics and Advanced Calculus. There are also a range of optional courses that can be chosen from both maths and physics areas.
