Content

In Semesters 1-3, you will take Mathematics plus two other subjects. Material covered at 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; Statistics and Probability; and Analysis. You can also opt to take an additional mathematics module in Discrete Structures.

In Semesters 4-8, the 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.
