BSc (Hons) Computing Mathematics

As technology develops, the demand for computer-literate mathematicians continues to expand. From understanding the behaviour of complex software to designing super-fast algorithms, maths is essential.

On this BSc (Hons) Computing Mathematics degree, you’ll gain a solid grounding in the methods of modern applied mathematics, with an emphasis on how they can be used in computing. Industry-standard programming packages are taught throughout the degree, alongside cutting-edge mathematical techniques to ensure you have the theoretical knowledge and practical skills to solve complex problems. This Computing Mathematics course has been accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications – the professional society for qualified and practising mathematicians. This means that on graduation, you will be one step closer to achieving chartered status.

Progress to an integrated Masters course

The BSc (Hons) Computing Mathematics is also offered through a combined Bachelors and Masters level study package – MMath. With just one additional year of full-time study, you’ll gain greater breadth and depth of mathematics skills and techniques relevant to practicing mathematicians. You’ll study advanced topics in applicable mathematics, statistics and pure mathematics – giving you the best chance of landing your dream job after graduation.

Top in Wales

Based on the results of the 2015 National Student Survey, the University was named top in Wales for Mathematics and Statistics and 6th in the UK.

What you will study

The BSc (Hons) Computing Mathematics will explore the methods of modern applied mathematics, with an emphasis on how they can be used in computing.

Youll gain a solid grounding in mathematics in the first year, built initially on material you encountered in core modules at A-level. Youll also develop expertise in a number of relevant, industry-standard computer packages and programming techniques.

From the second year onwards, you can specialise in areas of mathematics and computing that match your interests and career goals, such as computer graphics, artificial intelligence, pattern recognition,...
