Bachelor of Science (Honours) - Mathematics with Computer Science (with a Placement Year) (GG41) at University of Reading: Tuition Fee: £23,700.00 GBP / Year (Scholarship Available)

Develop knowledge of mathematics alongside key computational skills such as programming with the BSc Mathematics with Computer Science course. The modern world is increasingly reliant on computers and digital information, and this degree will provide students with skills highly prized by a vast range of employers. Students will be given a thorough grounding in computer science, backed up by an in-depth knowledge of mathematics. The split between the two subjects is roughly two-thirds mathematics and one-third computer science.

In mathematics students will study areas such as calculus, linear algebra, differential equations and numerical analysis. In the second year students will also take a skills module, which is aimed at improving their transferable skills and enhancing their employability. 

In computer science, explore the essential skills for computer scientists, such as programming, software design, computer systems, networking and operations, web technology and computer security. Get to grips with several programming languages including C++, Java and Python. 

In the final year of the degree students can develop their knowledge by exploring areas of interest in greater depth. The vast majority of modules in this year are optional and include subjects from both areas of the course such as data mining, cryptography, virtual reality or number theory. During this year students will also carry out a project on a mathematical topic and produce a report and presentation on it.

Students may choose to carry out a summer placement in an area such as finance or information technology in order to gain an insight into industry and valuable experience. 

Between the second and final year, students will carry out a paid industrial training placement, lasting around 12 months. Students could take on a wide variety of roles such as statistician, business analyst, actuarial intern and radiation protection scientist. They will also have the chance to work for a range of national and international organizations such as Microsoft, IBM, SAP or the NHS.
