Our well-thought-of programme consists of two main threads which progress throughout the four years of study; Analysis and Algebra. In addition, in the first two years we teach several courses on foundations. In the final two years we broaden our offer to other areas of Mathematics such as Topology and Geometry.
Mathematics is a powerful universal language used to describe situations in abstract terms. At the heart of manipulation with abstract mathematical objects are precision, logical thinking and reasoning skills. Studying and doing mathematics requires a high level of communication skills. Employers highly value these skills and the subsequent versatility of our graduates.
A degree in Mathematics is the gateway to a wide variety of challenging careers. Employers are keen to recruit mathematicians for their ability to think logically and analyse new developments whether in technology, business or commerce. Mathematics lends itself to a career in the financial sector, actuarial sector, computing and information technology, geophysics and data analysis. Not to forget careers in education.
Employers that have employed our graduates include: Lloyds Banking Group, HSBC, NHS Grampian, Office of National Statistics, CGG, Community Energy Scotland and Schlumberger.
