Mathematics is integral to applications and equipment we rely on every day. From building computers, to flying a plane or even providing much-needed healthcare practices, mathematics is an indispensable skill for an extensive range of industries.
This course enables you to develop highly sought-after logical and analytical thought processes, problem-solving abilities and good computing techniques, which will give you the opportunity to pursue careers in a wide range of fields including finance, credit risk, business intelligence, actuarial science, teaching, and research.
- This course is professionally accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA), to meet the requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation. It also provides an industry-recognised certification from SAS, the world’s largest independent business analytics company.
- You will have the opportunity, on selection of specific statistics third year modules, to gain a Joint SAS certificate.
- Teaching emphasises mathematical concepts and analytical techniques, and includes linear algebra, mathematical modelling with computers, and statistics.
- Develop your knowledge of industry-standard software such as Minitab, SAS and MATLAB and enhance your professional skills through written reports, phase tests, practical assessments and verbal presentations.
- Benefit from extra one-to-one support in addition to your studies by attending our Mathematics Learning Centre.
- Our graduates have gone on to work in a range of fields such as financial management, operational research, logistics, teaching, research and a variety of analytical roles.

Facilities and features
Computer Science Laboratories
Our numerous high-specification computing laboratories are equipped with the latest PCs with current professional-standard software. The laboratories in Gateway House provide 100 computer workstations for students to use, and the space is divided into interconnected laboratories each with 20 machines (20 HP PCs running Windows/Linux).
You will benefit from printing facilities, internal network access and digital projectors which aid teaching and learning. All the machines are connected via the Faculty of Technology network to a dedicated, high-performance file server for storage and backup of students’ work. Many of the software packages are open source which means students can download and run software at home.
You will also benefit from study spaces within the faculty buildings that are available for you to use on a casual basis throughout the year in addition to our Kimberlin Library.
The main Kimberlin Library is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year (other than in exceptional circumstances) and offers a huge range of online resources, all of which can be remotely accessed from anywhere you choose.
The library is run by dedicated staff who offer additional support to students, including help with academic writing, research strategies, literature searching and reference management and assistive technology, and mathematical skills for non-maths students. There is also a Just Ask service for help and advice, available via email or telephone.
Our comfortable and well-equipped study areas provide a range of environments to suit your needs.
Our Learning Zones and The Greenhouse provide flexible spaces, whether you are working as a group, practising a presentation or working quietly on your own.
They feature workstations with power supplies for laptops, plus bookable syndicate rooms with plasma screens, laptops and DVD facilities. Wi-Fi is available across all campus locations.
Opportunities and careers
As a DMU Mathematics graduate, you will be highly sought after in the job market. In addition to expanding your mathematical expertise and nurturing your logical and analytical thought processes, this practical course will enhance your problem-solving abilities and equip you with good computing techniques. It will also further develop your report writing, teamwork and presentation skills, enabling you to enter a wide range of careers in:
- Mathematics: (e.g. mathematical modelling, financial management, pensions, investment, forensic science investigation)
- Statistics: (e.g. data analysis, data mining, data science, customer relationship management, actuarial work)
- Operational Research: (eg. decision making, management scientist, logistics, transport planning)
- Computing: (e.g. programming, database design, artificial intelligence)
- Business: (e.g. industry, commerce, accounting, insurance, banking)
- Education: (e.g. teaching)
The course is also a springboard for our graduates who wish to undertake university (MPhil, PhD) research or pursue a taught master’s course.
This is our innovative international experience programme which aims to enrich your studies and expand your cultural horizons — helping you to become a global graduate, equipped to meet the needs of employers across the world.
You can improve your CV, become highly employable and put the skills you learn on your course into practice by taking a work placement as part of your studies.
Technology’s dedicated Placement Team provides support to all of our students looking to integrate a placement within their university career on both undergraduate degrees and postgraduate masters programmes. The placement unit will help you search for placement opportunities, create and refine your CV and interview approach, and offer any advice you need to find a great placement. Our placement students have worked for a range of organisations from small business through to multinational companies across the world including Microsoft, IBM, GlaxoSmithKline and PepsiCo International.
Placements can enhance your career prospects and give you the chance to use theory from the classroom in a real-world scenario before you have graduated.
