At Keele University, weâre different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. Weâre proud to be âUniversity of the Year for Student Experienceâ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because itâs more than green and lovely, itâs a place of research and academic excellence too.
At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Computer Science and Mathematics.
The School of Computing and Mathematics has been established for over 40 years and is recognised as being at the forefront of education and research in both Computer Science and Mathematics. Keele offers a first-rate environment for studying with teaching by research focused staff and dedicated computing laboratories.
Both subjects have been ranked in the Top 10 in the National Student Survey (2016) and we pride ourselves on the approachability of our staff and the individual support we provide.
This course combines two subjects that are highly complementary and aimed at developing problem solving and numerical data management skills in a digital context. Our teaching is informed by our cutting-edge and world-leading research, and also reflects what is happening in industry.
For the Computer Science element of the course you will study areas such as AI, computer games development, human-computer interaction, software engineering and security. Combined Honours students can follow a set of modules providing a specialism in information systems, smart systems, or creative computing. For the Mathematics element, you will explore the beauty, elegance and practicality of pure mathematics, applied mathematics and statistics. You will learn to use maths to develop precise and logical arguments, construct rigorous proofs, and formulate solutions to new problems.
Our combined degree builds the essential skills which are in demand from employers in fields of work as diverse as finance, data analytics, games, teaching, engineering, medical statistics and management consultancy. Specific careers include systems analysts, programmers, web/app developers, interface designers, data scientists, software engineers and consultants.
Options for Computer Science and Mathematics graduates are broad and many move directly into computer-related employment, or go on to study for higher degrees. Recent Keele graduates have gone to work for companies as diverse as Apple, BAE Systems, Barclays, Capgemini, EA Games, Experian, Microsoft and the Ministry of Defence.
