A diverse range of sectors, such as the IT industry, health, sports, finance, marketing and sales, are crying out for graduates with the ability to think clearly and logically, analyse complicated data sets, solve problems, make recommendations and communicate technical information in a language everyone can understand, which this course aims to teach.
A good grounding in mathematical thinking, statistics and computing is essential for creating and using algorithms and systems that identify patterns and extract value from masses of data.
Coventry University has a long tradition of teaching mathematics, statistics and computing with a strong emphasis on its application in practical situations. This new course blends all of these subject areas with a view to tackling a huge variety of interesting and engaging problems from business and industry – from fraud detection and credit risk to efficiency improvements and optimisation of delivery methods.
You’ll have access to our computing facilities, which enable you to gain experience using mathematical software packages, like MAPLE and MATLAB®. You can also receive one-to-one assistance from Sigma, the University’s Centre for Excellence in Mathematics and Statistics Support.
Our teaching teams includes active researchers in applied mathematics with expertise in fluid dynamics and complex systems, who share their research findings through teaching and supervising projects and also offer opportunities to apply for summer research internships at no additional cost. Past students have, for example, undertaken internships analysing social networks of past cultures through ancient and mythological narratives or studied lattice models of polymers.
