Mathematics and Computer Science

The programme follows 2 main strands: Algorithms and complexity theory, which concerns the efficiency of algorithms for solving computational problems, and identifies hierarchies of computational difficulty. This subject has applications in many areas, such as distributed computing, algorithmic tools to manage transport infrastructure, health informatics, artificial intelligence, and computational biology. Numerical Methods and Parallel Computing such as problems in mathematics, physics, astrophysics and biology cannot be solved using analytical techniques and require the application of numerical algorithms for progress. The development and optimisation of these algorithms coupled to the recent increase in computing power, via the availability of massively parallel machines, has led to great advances in many fields of computational mathematics. This subject has many applications, such as combustion, lubrication, atmospheric dispersion, river and harbour flows, and many more.

Entry requirements

A 1st or upper 2nd Class (2.1) BSc degree in mathematics or computer science (with a substantial mathematics component), or equivalent; students who hold other degrees with a substantial mathematics component are also considered.

Course modules

There are more than 25 optional modules to choose from, which may include: Problem solving with computers; computational modelling; techniques for knowledge management; machine learning; vision; combinatorics; coding theory; stochastic financial modelling; advanced graph theory; statistical computing.
