Overview

Mathematics is about profound beauty, the rush-like excitement of the ‘ah ha’ moment, and finding elegant solutions. It’s the relationship between patterns, systems, big data, technologies, and science.

Mathematical training develops specific skills and broad analytical expertise, which are valued across all professions. There is also a particular demand for graduates who not only have quantitative skills but also know how to use them.

This course delivers that sought-after combination – through our teaching style, and our focus on real-world applications of both mathematical and statistical techniques. For example, you’ll use the mathematics computing laboratories as an integral part of your learning process, making your study as experimental as theoretical.

Programme structure

In Semesters 1-3, you’ll take Mathematics plus two other subjects. The material covered at a secondary level is reviewed and applied before being developed further, ensuring a smooth transition from a school teaching approach to a university one.

You’ll take core modules in Calculus of One and Several Variables; Vectors, Matrices, Complex Numbers and their Application in Geometry and Systems Theory; Probability; and Analysis. You can also opt to take an additional mathematics module in Statistics and Discrete Structures.

In Semesters 4-8, the Applied Mathematics Honours course covers a broad range of skills. Advanced modules cover the following key areas: mathematical techniques for solving a wide range of problems; the theory underlying these mathematical techniques; and model-building, for example, converting real-world problems into mathematical form. This will include projects that allow further development of skills in areas of applied mathematics.
