    I love both discrete maths and operational research and want to study a uni course that contains lots of either.

    By this I mean topics like algorithms, logic, optimisation, graph theory and simulation.

    I was looking at Discrete maths at Warwick but it seems like a computer science course and I'm more interested in the maths side of it.

    (I'm also a fan of topology if anyone knows courses that include it too).

    I'm taking Discrete maths but have just overloaded heavily on maths modules compared to computer science modules

    DM at Warwick can 100% be tailored to be what you want it to be, with the exception of the core modules, but you'll find that there is a heavy algorithms focus. If you're still not convinced, check out MORSE at Warwick too.

    Thank you, I was considering MORSE but I'm not a fan of economics so I stuck with discrete. I've enjoyed algorithms so far at A level so hopefully I will next year.
