  • Course description
    Course overview

    City University London’s mathematical science degree courses are designed to provide the knowledge and skills that are in great demand by employers in both the private and public sector, enabling students to pursue a wide range of careers. The civil service, government agencies, and research establishments require mathematicians, as do large corporations, public utilities and financial companies.

    The mathematical science course provides an introduction to a wide range of mathematical techniques from pure and applied mathematics, and statistics. A central theme is the development of capacity for solving practical problems. On completion you will be equipped with skills for a wide variety of careers in industry, commerce, education and research.

    The MMath degree in mathematical science is a four year version of the corresponding three year degree. The third year contains a compulsory special topic, a second project and further optional modules from the third year course.

    Course content

    Year 1
    In year one you will concentrate on basic mathematical techniques. Core modules include:
    • Mathematics
    • Algebra
    • Calculus
    • Geometry and vectors
    • Programming
    • Probability and statistics
    • Mathematical communication

    Year 2
    Two core modules:
    • Calculus and linear algebra
    • Mathematical methods

    Plus a selection of optional modules from various topics in mathematics and statistics, including:
    • Applied mathematics
    • Dynamical systems
    • Analysis
    • Decision analysis
    • Stochastic models

    Year 3
    Three core modules:
    • Mathematical methods
    • Differential equations
    • Project
    Plus a wide selection of optional modules in mathematics and statistics, including:
    • Mathematical processes for finance
    • Fluid dynamics
    • Numerical mathematics
    • Operational research
    • Extreme value statistics

    Teaching and assessment

    Excellent facilities have been developed for students, and lectures and tutorials are supported through PC-based laboratory sessions and web-based learning material. Tutorials give you an opportunity to discuss the content of lectures or coursework with a member of staff. A particular feature of our course is the weekly small group tutorial for first year students, which allows us to provide intensive individual assistance in the early stages of the course.

    Assessment is based on coursework, project work, and examinations. Marks for each of the three years are weighted in the ratio 1:3:6 to produce an overall aggregate. For MMath courses the marks are weighted in the ratio 1:3:6:6. A year abroad or professional placement will not contribute to your final degree classification, but will be indicated on your degree certificate.

    Professional placement and study abroad

    Placement Year (optional)
    A year on an industrial placement – a sandwich year – may be available. The placement will give students the opportunity to learn more about industry, take on graduate level responsibilities and in some cases work as part of a multinational work force. Students may receive a salary and many go on to be re-employed by their placement company when they graduate.
