Course summary

Develop skills in mathematics and theoretical computer science, preparing you for roles that involve computational analysis, modelling and simulation.

This joint degree is for you if you enjoy and excel at computing but want to combine that with a very strong interest in mathematics.

By combining our computer science degree with pure mathematics, probability and statistics, you’ll be prepared for careers in data science that rely on a combination of mathematical and computational modelling.

In the first two years, you’ll study a mix of mathematics and computing units, including computational approaches to finding patterns in data and the generation of computational models. You will also share lectures with Mathematical Sciences students to study fundamental algebra and mathematical analysis. In the final year, you can choose to specialise in areas of numerical computer science and mathematics.

Computer scientists with good mathematical knowledge are in great demand worldwide. On graduation, you can apply what you’ve learnt to roles in software development that rely on a combination of mathematical and computational modelling, such as data analysis and forecasting.

Placement

Going on placement gives you the opportunity to apply your skills and knowledge during a year working in industry. You’ll be employed full-time in a role to match your future career ambitions, broadening your experience and transferable skills. This could give you a competitive edge when applying for graduate jobs.

We have links with some of the industry’s leading companies. Recent placement employers include Accenture, Imagination Technologies, Goldman Sachs, Microsoft and Google.

Placement opportunities can't be guaranteed but you will receive tailored support from our specialist team to help you secure a placement.

Prepare for your future

Our courses offer excellent graduate prospects. Recent roles include Product Manager at Atos, Cyber Security Analyst at Selex ES, Software Tester at Fujitsu and Software Developer at Imagination Technologies. You could also work in business, education and administration, or go on to further study, such as a PhD.
