The programme will build a foundation in quantitative methods combined with an understanding of how to use mathematical and statistical applications. Engineering modules are studied at each level to demonstrate the applicability of mathematics in real-world settings. In the final year, you will have a chance to specialise in areas like advanced calculus, operational research, engineering analysis and thermodynamics. This degree has a very high academic and professional standing and the Applied Mathematics Department has been formally recognised for its high quality teaching, excellent resources and dedicated staff. The Department also boasts state-of-the-art facilities at its Byrom Street campus, with over 150 high performance computers and industry-standard software. We aim to improve your employability wherever possible on this course, which is why practical modules are introduced at every level. Most importantly, you can spend a sandwich year on a paid work placement to get a taste of what it's really like to work in industry. The Department's strong links with over 450 local and national organisations mean that all of its courses are designed and developed to suit the needs of employers today, as well as creating excellent work placements for students. Currently we have close ties with Lotus Renault F1, McLaren, Caterpillar, Airbus, BP, Proctor and Gamble, Scottish Power and Railtrack to name but a few.
