Dr Walker continued: “The degree is designed to provide a broad understanding of key areas of mathematics, with options for students to individualise their degree at every level.
“We have a team of academics ready to work with our students to prepare them for a wide variety of work and study options, from finance and research to cyber security and engineering.”
Students will have the opportunity to study a range of different topics throughout the four-year degree, including statistics, finance, coding and cryptography, numerical analysis and mathematical biology.
Professor Carl Schaschke, Dean of UWS’s School of Computing, Engineering and Physical Sciences, added: “Mathematics underpins all science and engineering and allows us to describe and analyse the world in which we live. I’m delighted to be offering such an exciting degree programme at UWS.
“The new degree programme offers both high-quality teaching with a variety of study pathways to provide the skills and knowledge that employers seek from graduates. I am therefore looking forward to welcoming our first students this September.”
Entry requirements for the programme are BBBC for Scottish Higher candidates (102 UCAS Tariff points), or CCC at A-level (96 UCAS Tariff points), but potential applicants are reminded that a range of different qualifications and experience will be considered.
