Engineering Mathematics is the art of applying mathematics to complex real-world problems. It combines mathematical theory, practical engineering and scientific computing to address today’s technological challenges.Engineering Mathematics is a creative and exciting discipline, spanning traditional boundaries. Engineering mathematicians can be found in an extraordinarily wide range of careers, from designing next generation Formula One cars to working at the cutting edge of robotics, from running their own business creating new autonomous vehicles to developing innovative indices for leading global financial institutions.
The key skill of an engineering mathematician is mathematical modelling: the art of applying mathematics to complex real-world problems. Problem solving of this kind really is an art that can only be learnt from hands-on experience, so that's how we teach it: using case studies taken from a whole range of engineering, scientific, industrial and business applications. A thread of mathematical modelling units runs throughout all our degree programmes. In these you will work in teams to tackle challenging and open-ended problems, applying the theory you have learnt in other units.
