Overview

COURSE SUMMARY

This course brings together the fields of Computer Science and
Mathematics. As such it provides a unique opportunity to explore and
learn about subjects that are on the boundaries of both. It offers
students the opportunity to combine mathematical skills with problems
requiring the use of computers and will prepare students for careers
that require high numerical and analytical skills. The skills and
knowledge you will acquire on this course will open up employment
opportunities in computer modelling, simulation and operational
research, or as analysts, security theoreticians or applied
statisticians.

During the course you will:

  • Benefit from staff expertise in the link between mathematics and
    computer science (for example, between number theory and security, or
    OO and mathematical modelling)
  • Have access to research rated as `internationally excellent in the
    Governments Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) 2008
  • Experience the seamless integration of maths and computer science
  • Explore artificial intelligence, games development, internet
    computing and robotics, helping you decide which field you want to
    specialise in

Areas of study you may cover on this course include:

  • Algebra and number theory
  • Simulations and statistics
  • Programming languages
  • System integration
  • Synergies between maths and computer science
  • Logic and foundations of mathematics
  • Research methodologies and emerging technologies
  • Mathematical concepts as applied to computer science
  • Project management and ethical issues

Career opportunities

CAREER MANAGEMENT SKILLS

This forms a consistent thread progressing through each year with
opportunities of engaging with industrial and business projects or
through engagement with an employer during a sandwich year placement.
Students will also be encouraged to engage with the Careers
Development Unit (Job Shop) in order to assess the skills that they
possess against positions within the current market. Any skills
deficiencies can then be identified, and students can begin to address
these in order to progress to their chosen career.

CAREER/FURTHER STUDY OPPORTUNITIES

Career:

Modelling and simulation, analyst, security theoretician, operational
research and applied statistician.

Further study:

MSc Computer Science or Mathematics; MPhil / Ph.D.
