Mathematical Sciences (Environmental Sciences)

The modern application of mathematics operates at the interface of multiple disciplines, and integrates data analysis, computer science, and statistics. The explosion of ‘big data’, in sectors including genome sequencing, ‘eco-informatics’, and on-line consumer behaviour, means there is an urgent need for mathematicians who can handle complex datasets, communicate effectively, and fully understand the techniques, pitfalls, and potential of advanced mathematical methods. Mathematical Sciences combines traditional mathematics subjects with advanced courses in statistics, programming, and data science, that will prepare students for the array of numerate and analytical professions that are found at the core of both modern research and the digital economy. There is an outward facing approach to mathematics with options available in ecology, business, engineering, social science, and environmental science. On completion of the programme students will have a deep understanding of the techniques and methods of modern mathematical sciences, and a clear insight into the industrial and scientific areas in which they are applied. The four-year MSci degrees allow you to explore your mathematical interests to a greater depth and to obtain a higher level qualification than the standard three-year BSc degree.
