Course summary

This course is an exciting applications-focused mathematics programme with the curriculum oriented towards potential career opportunities. There is a strong focus on setting the application of mathematics in context – providing you with relevant commercial and social awareness and appropriate professional skills for your future career development. The overarching ethos of the delivery is that you should be engaged in active learning wherever possible. A largely problem- centred learning approach is adopted, whereby you will begin with the problems of interest and learn the necessary theory and techniques required to solve them. To assist with this extensive use is made of computational support. You will gain computing skills and experience of a variety of up to date professional, industry-standard software packages deployed on the University's modern computing facilities.

The format of assessments is varied - for example, in addition to examinations, you will investigate case studies, individually and in groups, writing reports and giving oral presentations. Typically you will produce simulations, posters, videos, schedules/quotations for customers, write articles, etc. In this way, as you progress through the course, you will ‘learn by doing and making' and assemble a portfolio of tangible outputs which evidence, explicitly, the knowledge and skills you have gained and which may be used to demonstrate your capabilities to future employers. Coursework is designed to be achieved within the set amount of learning hours for each module and is appropriate to the level of study. We encourage a professional work ethic, which includes how to manage your time. A range of additional support is available to students who require it via the Academic Support Centre and personal tutors.
