Computing can be described as any goal-oriented activity that involves the use of computers. This might include programming, designing databases, doing research, creating and using communications media, and systems analysis.
Mathematics may be the most versatile of the sciences. The Department’s courses in mathematics and statistics seek to provide practical application of maths, to explain phenomena that occur in the real world, or give insight into the future of computing. You might learn the basics of mathematical principles; you might discover how a leopard gets its spots; or you might explore quantum theory and relativity.
Many of our courses can be studied for credit which means they can count towards a recognised qualification.
