The Department of Mathematics is home to 35 academics and postdoctoral researchers as well as 25 postgraduate students. Our research groups in nonlinear mathematics and statistics are widely recognised and we run a lively PhD programme. We offer a range of undergraduate BSc and MMath courses in Mathematics in an environment where teaching and research are well integrated.
Students on our MMath and BSc programmes have various opportunities to explore the life as a professional mathematician by participating in the optional Professional Training Year or by taking part in one of the summer projects for undergraduate students providing them with experience in a working environment.
In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) our Applied Mathematics submission was rated 7th in the country for World Leading research outputs. Members of the Department collaborate extensively with mathematicians and scientists worldwide and play leading roles in the organisation of international conferences, workshops and networks.
