- Object Oriented Programming - 20 credits
- Vectors, Geometry & Linear Algebra - 20 credits
- Mechanics - 10 credits
- Probability and Statistics - 10 credits
- Logic and Computation - 20 credits
- Algebra & Combinatorics - 20 credits
- Functional Programming - 20 credits
- Systems Programming in C/C++ - 20 credits
- Real and Complex Analysis - 20 credits
- Security and Networks - 20 credits
Choose 20 credits of options. Example optional modules:
- Differential Equations - 20 credits
- Statistics - 20 credits
Year 3 (in Industry)
In your third year you will go on industrial placement, working for a company or other appropriate institution, developing your computer and mathematical skills in the workplace setting.
Tuition fees for placement years (where applicable)
There is a reduced tuition fee for the academic year spent in industry or whilst studying abroad (where available). Fee information and further clarification is available on the University fees and funding page.
Your final year offers a choice of modules with the possibility of specialising in either Mathematics or Computer Science.
- Either Project in in Computer Science (40 credits) or Research SKills in Mathematics (20 credits)
Choose 80-100 credits (dependent on core module choice), satisfying timetabling requirements and necessary pre-requisites, with a minimum of 20 credits in total from each of Mathematics and Computer Science. All modules are 20 credits:
- Number Theory
- Graph Theory
- Combinatorics and Communication Theory
- Mathematical Finance
- Algebra and Combinatorics 2
- Differential Equations
- Real and Complex Analysis
Computer Science modules:
- Advanced Networking
- Computer Graphics
- Computer Vision and Imaging
- Human Computer Interaction
- Security of Real-World Systems
- Theoretical Foundations for Security
Please note: The modules listed on the website for this programme are regularly reviewed to ensure they are up-to-date and informed by the latest research and teaching methods. Unless indicated otherwise, the modules listed for this programme are for students starting in 2020. On rare occasions, we may need to make unexpected changes to core modules; in this event we will contact offer holders as soon as possible to inform or consult them as appropriate.
