Mathematics at Brunel has an active and dynamic research centre and many of our lecturers are widely published and highly recognised in their fields. Their work is frequently supported by external grants and contracts with leading industry and government establishments. Lecturers are consequently at the frontiers of the subject and in active contact with modern users of mathematics. This means that you can be assured that our academics are teaching you a truly up-to-date methods and you’ll benefit from a wide range of expertise across the different areas of mathematics.
You’ll be taught using a range of teaching methods, including lectures, computer labs and discussion groups. Lectures are supplemented by computer labs and seminars/exercise classes and small group discussions. The seminars will be useful for you to carry out numerical data analysis, raise questions arising from the lectures, exercise sheets, or self-studies in an interactive environment.
Support for academic and personal growth is provided through a range of workshops covering topics such as data protection, critical thinking, presentation skills and technical writing skills.
You’ll also complete an individual student project supervised by a relevant academic on your chosen topic.
