A-level standard offer: AAA
A-level contextual offer: ABB
See entry requirements for full details and eligibility.
The first two years of this course provide a background in mathematical analysis, computing and general engineering, within the overal context of mathematical and data modelling. You will also gain experience in practical problem-solving and teamwork as well as an introduction to professional practice. These skills will form the basis of the later years of study.
After your first two years you can choose from a wide range of specialist options from across engineering, mathematics, data science and intelligent and robotic systems, to fit your interests. You will be taught by some of the leaders of research in these topics.
A major focus of the course and a key strand throughout the curriculum is real-world problem solving, spanning many different application areas from robotics and social media to medicine and environmental modelling. In your third year the problems come from our industrial or external collaborators and address fresh challenges of current concern. Working on these case studies, using theory and techniques from across your studies, will hone your skills in mathematical and data modelling as well as professional teamworking and communication skills.
A highlight of the degree is your individual final-year project – a chance to contribute to the cutting edge of research into a topic of interest to the wider stakeholders of our degree. This highly creative, challenging yet enjoyable experience provides excellent preparation for your future career.
