MEng 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 overall 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.

After returning to full time study, in your final two years, you can choose from a wide range of specialist options 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 the fourth year, 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, you 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 in the fifth year - 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.
