Course Content

The first year lays a solid mathematical foundation and introduces the academic skills needed for the rest of the degree. The year is common with the Mathematics degree. The applied focus is provided by studying modules in Problem Solving and Motion in Time and Space.

The second year strengthens your knowledge of core mathematical methods, and introduces more key elements of applied mathematics and theoretical physics such as electromagnetism and mathematical modelling.

Your final year affords you the opportunity to study further topics such as fluid dynamics, quantum and statistical physics, and astrophysics. You will also engage in a final year dissertation project. Recent examples involve: black holes, social networks, the flow of liquid metal in a magnetic field and phase transitions.

Your timetable will be based on lectures, computer laboratory sessions and examples classes. We schedule weekly sessions where your module lecturers are available to provide support, and on top of group work sessions you will have regular personal tutorials. The Mathematics Support Centre is open seven days a week to provide you with one-to-one support. The Centre also has specialist staff to provide extra support for dyslexic students.

You will work with staff on real-world problems from industry, commerce and research groups, as you would in professional practice; this means that you develop all of the professional skills at the same time as you learn the technical content of your degree.
