Mathematical Sciences department

The Mathematical Sciences department's strengths are its close links with industry, and an emphasis on modelling and computing skills. Our research ranges from statistical programming and stochastic modelling to financial mathematics and decision analysis, including game theory.

Undergraduate study in mathematical sciences will give you a solid grounding in this area.

Graduate certificates and diplomas

A certificate or diploma will give you an introduction to your chosen subject and can prepare you for further study.
