During your first year at Lancaster University's Computer Science and Mathematics (Hons) you will build on your previous knowledge and understanding of mathematical methods and concepts. Modules cover a wide range of topics from calculus, probability and statistics to logic, proofs and theorems. As well as developing your technical knowledge and mathematical skills, you will also enhance your data analysis, problem-solving and quantitative reasoning skills. Additionally, you will be introduced to software development and the fundamentals of computer science. These topics will allow you to gain a wealth of technical knowledge and develop key interdisciplinary skills.
In the second year, you will begin to drill down into specialist maths and computing modules, studying Human-Computer Interaction; Software Design; Linear Algebra; and Social, Ethical and Professional Issues in Computing. These core modules will ensure you gain a solid understanding of the disciplines that is applicable in the real-world. Alongside these, you will also be able to choose from a range of optional maths modules, these include: Abstract Algebra, Complex Analysis, and Real Analysis. In addition, you will bring your skills and knowledge together in a group project, which will allow you to apply what you have learnt to the real-world and gain valuable, practical experience.
For the third year, your study will be largely guided by your own interests. Compulsory modules, such as Artificial Intelligence, Languages and Compilation, and Security and Risk, will enhance and progress your computer science knowledge and provide insight into the sort of activity you will encounter in the real-world. However, the wide range of optional modules you can choose from will allow you to delve deeper into your own interests and customise the year to suit your career ambitions.
The fourth and final year of your degree will introduce a variety of advanced modules for you to choose from. You can build a strong repertoire of maths and computer science skills and knowledge, to suit your interests and goals, including: Data Mining; Galois Theory; Lie Groups and Lie Algebras; Operator Theory; and Systems Architecture and Integration. You will also benefit from our Research Methods module, which will provide you with a formal understanding of research, and allow you to gain the appropriate skills and practices. You will learn to critically reflect on your research and will gain an appreciation of the different ways that other disciplines, academic communities and industries conduct research.
