The computing focus of this degree programme is complemented by its mathematical content. In particular, systems building and software engineering are combined with applied numerical methods and discrete mathematics as related to modern technology to give a computational approach to mathematics. Students on this programme not only develop a sound practical knowledge of mathematics and its application to real-life situations but also build up their ability to analyse and solve problems. Meanwhile, the computing element helps students to understand how computer systems are developed and offers training to design and build them.

As a whole, the programme presents students with an opportunity to acquire skills such as logical analysis, deduction and mathematical modelling, together with the ability to implement them on modern-day computer systems, a facility which is valued by most employers. This programme allows students to take part in 'Mathematics Education and Communication' or 'Computing Education and Communication'. Both are designed to offer teaching experience through the Undergraduate Ambassadors Scheme and aim to give the opportunity to gain classroom experience as one of the final-year options.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To provide students with a comprehensive understanding of mathematical methods and techniques, and the ability to apply them to real-life problems
  • To provide students with the knowledge of advanced programming and software engineering and to develop analytical, systems building and programming skills
  • To provide training in the use of mathematical and computing software tools, and an understanding of their strengths and limitations.
