Mathematics is integral to the development of society, and graduates have no shortage of exciting career options. The study and use of mathematical problem-solving skills is highly-valued across a range of industries. Some students choose to pursue careers in areas including banking and finance, large industrial or computing companies.
Transport and Infrastructure Planning
Mathematical modelling and intelligent computing techniques are used to manage train timetables, bookings and to help solve problems such as train delays and over-crowdedness. Real-time monitoring equipment uses Edge Computing technology to prevent failures and provides accurate support to drivers during service, making journeys safer.
Banking and Finance
Mathematical and computing techniques are important tools in the finance industry. Methods of mathematical modelling and machine learning are used by banks for quantifying risk and creating algorithms for fraud detection.
Many of civilisation’s greatest achievements are built on mathematics. By choosing a mathematics degree, you will learn to make an important contribution to the world around us, be it in science, technology or engineering.
