Course summary

Are you drawn to the practical power and potential of computing and the beauty and logic of the mathematics behind it?Computing has always relied on mathematical models and algorithms but mathematics also relies heavily on computers for exploring concepts, modelling ideas, problem-solving and even generating proofs. Both mathematics and computer science inform almost every aspect of our modern lives and this three-year joint honours programme allows you to immerse yourself in both and combine abstract concepts and fascinating theories with hands-on practical experience.Our progressive curriculum is delivered by inspiring mathematicians and computer scientists and informed by input from industry. You will gain a solid grounding in all the fundamentals of pure and applied mathematics, whilst learning about computer programming, software engineering, algorithms and complexity. In computer science our focus is on contemporary technologies such as Web 2.0 and distributed and embedded systems. You will have the chance to experiment in well-equipped laboratories with cutting-edge technologies that are transforming the way we live and work. You will also gain transferrable skills such as project management, time management, team working, data handling, research and presentation. The programme's modular structure means you can tailor your studies to your own interests, whilst maintaining an equal split between the two disciplines.Our Mathematics and Computer Science departments are highly respected for the quality of their research and teaching. They offer friendly and supportive learning environments with excellent facilities. We are one of only seven computer science departments in the UK to hold the Athena SWAN bronze award for increasing female participation in computer science. We offer short-term summer work placements and a dedicated personal adviser to guide you through your studies. You will also be welcome to join our thriving Computing Society.
