This Mathematics and Physics course runs in 2016/17.
Mathematics gives us the tools to understand, predict and control
everyday phenomena, from how your orange juice flows out of the carton to the behaviour of a vehicle's anti-lock braking system and the intricacies of quantum theory.
Our course provides a strong practical approach to modern applied mathematics, offering you detailed and varied insight into a range of topics, such as fluid dynamics, astrophysics, electricity and magnetism. Succesful graduates will also have the experience to work in a wide range of professions such as accountancy, computer analysis and industrial design where analytical skills are highly prized.
If you choose this course you will benefit from:
- a course which meets the educational requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) when it is followed by subsequent training and experience in employment to obtain equivalent competencies to those specified by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for taught masters degrees;
- employer links with National Grid, MathWorks, Unipart, Rolls-Royce and Jaguar Land Rover;
- strong practical emphasis through modern applied mathematics and physics;
- one-to-one help from the Mathematics Support Centre, organised by sigma, the University’s internationally renowned Centre for Excellence in Mathematics and Statistics Support;
- placement opportunities to apply for with companies that have previously included: National Grid, Mercedes-Benz and Jaguar Land Rover;
- being taught by active researchers in Applied Mathematics, who carry out The Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) scored 86% of outputs as world-leading or internationally excellent;
- the opportunity to study abroad as part of the Erasmus scheme.
Accreditations shall be renewed in accordance with the accreditors standard review process and subject to the University maintaining the same high standards of course delivery.
WHAT WILL I LEARN?
The first year lays a solid mathematical foundation and introduces the academic skills needed for the rest of the degree. The year is common with the Mathematics degree. The applied focus is provided by studying modules in Problem Solving and Motion in Time and Space.
The second year strengthens your knowledge of core mathematical methods, and introduces more key elements of mathematics and physics such as electromagnetism and mathematical modelling.
Your final year affords you the opportunity to study further topics such as fluid dynamics, quantum and statistical physics, and astrophysics. You will also engage in a final year dissertation project. Recent examples involve: black holes, social networks, the flow of liquid metal in a magnetic field and phase transitions.HOW WILL THIS COURSE BE TAUGHT?
Your timetable will be based on lectures, computer laboratory sessions and examples classes. We schedule weekly sessions where your module lecturers are available to provide support, and on top of group work sessions you will have regular personal tutorials. The Mathematics Support Centre is open seven days a week to provide you with one-to-one support. The Centre also has specialist staff to provide extra support for dyslexic students.
You will work with staff on real-world problems from industry, commerce and research groups, as you would in professional practice; this means that you develop all of the professional skills at the same time as you learn the technical content of your degree.
If you are interested in part-time study (which is taught during the day) please contact the Part-time Admissions team on +44 (0) 24 7765 4321 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information, but please note that not all courses have a part-time option.HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED?
An estimated percentage breakdown of how your final grade is assessed is as follows: formal examinations 47%; coursework, including tests and groupwork 47%; practical work, including presentations 6%.
A compulsory Add+vantage module must also be completed: please see the page on the Add+vantage scheme for more details.TEACHING CONTACT HOURS
Each module has a different mix between lectures, tutorials and labs. In a typical week you will have 15-19 contact hours of teaching and this will break down as:
Personal tutorial/small group teaching: 1 hour of personal academic tutorial (or later, individual project supervision) each week
Medium group teaching: 6-12 hours of tutorials, laboratories and studio sessions each week
Large group teaching: 6-12 hours of lectures each week
Personal study: 20 hours each week studying and revising in your own time – including some guided study using handouts, online activities, etc."
