Using mathematics to solve industrial and commercial problems has led to vital breakthroughs for human advancement. Mathematical models underpin engineering, the applied sciences, computing and many aspects of business and management today.
  • If you have a skill for mathematics and statistics and a flare for management then this could be the course for you. The combination of skills developed on this course will open doors to a wide range of careers.
  • This course focuses on how mathematics can solve industrial and commercial problems. You’ll develop a broad knowledge of general management alongside applicable skills and knowledge in mathematics and statistics.
  • Follow the four-year Professional Placement degree programme and you‘ll benefit from our extensive experience in helping students to find well-paid work placements with blue-chip companies. Our sandwich students find that their mathematical and transferable skills are in demand in many sectors, both in the UK and abroad.
  • Areas recently offering placements include: accountancy, aviation, banking, defence, finance, insurance, IT (software development, network management and design), management (public and private sector), marketing and telecommunications.
  • This programme will meet the educational requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation, awarded by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, when it is followed by subsequent training and experience in employment to obtain equivalent competences to those specified by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for taught master's degrees.

  • Mathematics and Computing with Integrated Foundation Year For Brunel Mathematics and Computing with Integrated Foundation Year progression requirements
  • Five GCSEs at grade C or grade 4 and above are also required, to include Maths and English Language.

EU and International entry requirements

  • If you require a Tier 4 visa to study in the UK, you must prove knowledge of the English language so that we can issue you a Certificate of Acceptance for Study (CAS). To do this, you will need an IELTS for UKVI or Trinity SELT test pass gained from a test centre approved by UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) and on the Secure English Language Testing (SELT) list. This must have been taken and passed within two years from the date the CAS is made.

English language requirements

  • IELTS: 6 (min 5.5 in all areas)
  • Pearson: 59 (59 in all sub scores)
  • BrunELT: 58% (min 55% in all areas)
  • TOEFL: 79 (min R18, L17, S20, W17)
  • At Brunel we aim to make your transition into the university style of learning as easy as possible. So in the first few weeks of Level 1 you’ll start your learning in small groups of about 20 students. During your first year you’ll learn how to apply your mathematical knowledge to the real world.
  • You’ll be studying a mixture of maths and selected topics from the field of management. Mathematics accounts for between two-thirds and three-quarters of the course. This will be broad based meaning that you’ll develop your skills across a wide range of mathematical areas but with an emphasis on statistics and operational research as these areas are especially relevant to management theory. Your management topics will include areas such as accountancy, finance and organisational studies. These will be taught by the Brunel Business School meaning that you’ll benefit from the expertise of academics who are internationally recognised for their work and research in the business community.
  • The Final Year Project, an individual piece of coursework will account for one-third of Level 3. On special request, Mathematics and Statistics with Management students may replace this project with the Issues and Controversies in Management Project.
  • You’ll be able to select from a large number of projects covering a wide range of mathematical areas and applications. Your project will be supervised by a staff member. You’ll emphasise real applications or abstract theories, using theoretical and/or computational tools. If you’ve completed a placement you will be able to choose a project associated with your work experience. Examples of project titles are:
  • The very famous ‘travelling salesman problem’ (also known as ‘the lazy waiter’!);
  • Simulations of iterated Prisoner’s Dilemma and game theory
  • The mathematics of complex networks such as the web or Facebook
  • Applications of statistics to the Premier League, police complaints data and climate change
  • This course can be studied 3 years full-time or 4 years full-time with placement, starting in September.
