Overview

Mathematics and computing are intertwined, and affect people’s lives in ways you might not expect. Maths is the language that underpins the modern world and our BSc Mathematics with Computing is predominantly mathematical, backing this up with training in programming and algorithms. You’ll receive a good grounding in a broad range of subjects and have the flexibility to choose options according to your interests in both departments. This allows you to tailor your degree to your chosen specialism or preferred career path.

At Essex we help you develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills that will start to prepare you to succeed in a wide range of careers involving mathematics and computing. You can build a sound set of skills spanning both disciplines including rigorous problem-solving skills.

For example, in mathematics you will learn to analyse very large datasets as well as discover deep insights into complex systems. This is complemented by computational modules that give you will the ability to see a computer system from specification through design, testing and documentation to implementation, and experience of writing technical descriptions and reports.
