Overview

You’ll receive a good grounding in a broad range of subjects and have the flexibility to choose options according to your interests in both departments. This allows you to tailor your degree to your chosen specialism or preferred career path.

At Essex we help you develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills that will start to prepare you to succeed in a wide range of careers involving mathematics and computing. You can build a sound set of skills spanning both disciplines including rigorous problem-solving skills.

For example, in mathematics you will learn to analyse very large datasets as well as discover deep insights into complex systems. This is complemented by computational modules that give you will the ability to see a computer system from specification through design, testing and documentation to implementation, and experience of writing technical descriptions and reports.

Your future

Clear thinkers are required in every profession, so the successful mathematician has an extensive choice of potential careers.
