Develop skills in mathematics and software development, preparing you for roles that involve computational analysis, modelling and simulation.
Computer science and mathematics are closely linked. Many of the leading applications of computing are mathematical and computers are fundamentally logic engines.
This joint degree course is for you if you enjoy and excel at computing but want to combine that with an interest in mathematics.
In the first two years youâll study a mix of mathematics and computing units. You will study computational approaches to finding patterns in data and the generation of computational models. You will also share lectures with Mathematical Sciences students to study fundamental algebra and mathematical analysis. In the final year you can choose to specialise in areas of numerical computer science and mathematics.
The Master of Computing (MComp) course provides you with the same core skills and knowledge of the BSc but with a special exposure to research topics and methods.
Computer scientists with good mathematical knowledge are in great demand worldwide. On graduation you can apply what youâve learnt to roles in software development that rely on a combination of mathematical and computational modelling, such as data analysis and forecasting.
Application deadline details:
Bath University - where, thanks to the name, some societies are called BRA, BUMS and BUST and being part of them is just as much of a laugh. It takes at most a 15 minute walk from one end of the campus to another, you'll pass the many things that the campus has to offer. The lake, the library, the coffee shop, the canteen, people singing and dancing, the post office, the shop, the bar.. you name it. The university came top for satisfaction in 2013 and the city is one of the safest places to be. If the uni doesn't have something the city will, and both are absolutely beautiful.
Everyone is so friendly. If you feel lonely, lost, or homesick or have any issues there are people here who are willing to help, and many students are willing to help you. It isn't as overwhelming as it seems, you can do anything you dreamed of doing. so far, it's been great, i've met loads of new people every day.
