Why do some aircraft experience more drag? How do satellites calculate their orbit? How are partially autonomous vehicles controlled? Applied mathematics uses maths as a tool for engineering and real-life applications in the fields of science, engineering, business, computer science and industry. First, you thoroughly analyse the problem and then you translate it into a mathematical model using computer programs.
Is this the programme for you?
You like finding order in the chaos of practical technical problems. You’re interested in applying quantitative techniques to solve problems. University Applied Mathematics is not the same as maths at secondary school. While some things are similar, you will also discover new areas. If you’re interested in mathematics and its real-world uses, while working with specialists from other disciplines, then this is the programme for you.
