Overview

Taught jointly by the Departments of Computing and Mathematics, the Mathematics and Computer Science degree from Imperial College London provides a firm foundation in mathematics, particularly in pure mathematics, numerical analysis and statistics. 

This makes the courses particularly suited to mathematically-able students with interests in both subjects.

Study programme

During the first two years you take core modules from both departments and complete project work, with the chance to choose some optional modules in the second year.

In the third year you can choose from a wide variety of optional modules offered by the departments to suit your interests, and will also complete a substantial individual project.
