Overview

Mathematics and Physics are both exciting subjects sharing a common history. Both fields go hand in hand and can help to model real world situations to find new solutions to problems. In addition, both fields are important in training for developmental logical and constructive thoughts.
The BSc (Hons) in Mathematics and Physics degree aims to provide an understanding of fundamental scientific phenomena and logic. You should learn to translate this understanding into mathematical and computational models, which are then solved using a variety of tools. This scientific process should produce graduates who are particularly well trained at problem solving beyond the various fields presented in the course. Such training could make a science graduate highly desirable in a wide range of employment sectors. It is expected that upon successful completion of the course you will have gained a strong grounding in mathematical thinking as well as a good understanding of how mathematics may be used to solve physical and practical problems.

The faculty has an award-winning placement and employability service, EEC Futures, which aims to help students find placements between Level 5 and Level 6, if they so desire. A particular emphasis is placed on providing students with general and subject specific skills to help and support graduates to find employment in professions where mathematical skills and/or problem-solving skills are important.

The course will provide opportunities for you to engage in research through your final year projects. There is also the opportunity for you to apply for a paid summer research internship (subject to competitive application and availability) as well as benefitting from an optional industrial placement or study abroad year (subject to additional costs, competitive application and meeting visa requirements). The range of career opportunities for mathematics and physics graduates is wide, ranging from jobs in statistics and finance, to commerce, science and technology, engineering, and education to name a few. Coventry University has a long tradition of teaching mathematics with a strong emphasis on its applications in practical situations.

Career opportunities

Studying mathematics and physics should help you to develop skills in logical thinking and statistical or strategic knowledge, which should demonstrate to potential future employers your advanced numerical and analytical ability.

Successful completion of a mathematics and physics degree could give you a significant advantage in the job market, which could open up a wide range of potential future career opportunities in industry, accountancy, banking, computer analysis, marketing, industrial design, management, and scientific research. You could be employed in a wide variety of roles, for example, as an actuarial analyst, actuary, forensic accountant, operational researcher, research scientist, teacher, statistician or stockbroker.

To improve your employment prospects and gain valuable professional experience, we strongly encourage you to spend a year on industrial training between Year 2 and Year 3*. The faculty’s employability and placements unit EEC Futures, which won the ‘Best Placement Service in the UK’ award at the National Undergraduate Employability Awards in 2015 and 2016, aims to provide assistance to help and support you find an appropriate placement. *Industrial training may be subject to competitive application, availability, additional costs and meeting visa requirements.
