The programme consists of eight compulsory modules and a statistics with data analytics dissertation. The first term provides a thorough grounding in core programming, statistical and data analysis skills. In addition to acquiring relevant statistical and computational methods, you’ll be encouraged to engage with real commercial and/or industrial problems through a series of inspiring case studies delivered by guest speakers.
On completing this course you’ll be equipped with a range of advanced statistical methods and the associated computational skills for handing large quantities of unstructured data. You’ll develop a critical awareness of the underlying needs of industry and commerce through case studies. You’ll be able to analyse real-world data and to communicate the output of sophisticated statistical models in order to inform decision making processes. You’ll have the necessary computational skills to build and analyse simple/appropriate solutions using statistical Big Data technologies.

You can find out more about the qualifications we accept on our English Language Requirements page.
Should you wish to take a pre-sessional English course to improve your English prior to starting your degree course, you must sit the test at an approved SELT provider for the same reason. We offer our own BrunELT English test and have pre-sessional English language courses for students who do not meet requirements or who wish to improve their English. You can find out more information on English courses and test options through our Brunel Language Centre.

Teaching and Learning
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.
Should you need any non-academic support during your time at Brunel, the Student Support and Welfare Team are here to help.
