BEng Engineering Mathematics with a Year in Industry

2024 entry

Course summary

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.

If you choose and are accepted on the Year in Industry version of the degree you will spend your third year working for one of our industrial partners. During this time you will be supported to complete an assignment based on how you applied knowledge from your degree programme.

For the final year of your degree 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 final year you can choose either to continue such group modelling studies applied to fresh problems of current concern to our industrial or external collaborators. Or you can choose an individual research project - a chance to contribute to the cutting edge of research into a topic of interest to the wider stakeholders of our degree. Either will hone your skills in mathematical and data modelling as the well as the professional skills that will prepare you for your future career.
