About

Mathematics and computing are intrinsically linked. By combining them in Lancaster University's Computer Science and Mathematics - Placement Year (Hons) programme you gain a comprehensive understanding of the fundamental and advanced aspects of the two disciplines, equipping you with the specialist skills and technical knowledge to excel in your chosen career.

Overview

Key facts

During your first year at Lancaster University's Computer Science and Mathematics - Placement Year (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 and advanced Linear Algebra. 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 and computing modules, these include: Abstract Algebra; Complex Analysis; Databases; and Social, Ethical and Professional Issues in Computing. 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.

In third year, you will undertake a 12-month placement that will allow you to apply the knowledge and skills that you’ve learnt in Years 1 and 2, and to gain invaluable experience which will make you highly employable when you graduate. You will also submit monthly learning logs reflecting on your experience.
