At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.
At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Computer Science and Mathematics. For the Computer Science element of the course, you will learn the underpinning theories of software, hardware
and computing techniques – and how to apply them in the real world. You’ll learn to use technology to create new opportunities and to solve
a wide range of problems, benefiting every aspect of society from the
home to business, government and beyond. This means your skills are
likely to be in high demand when you graduate.
Our teaching is informed by our cutting-edge research, and we also
reflect what’s happening now in industry.
Combined honours students
can follow a set of modules providing a specialism in information
systems, evolutionary systems, or creative computing, whilst single
honours students cover all these strands. There’s a strong emphasis
on programming – but don’t worry if you don’t have Maths A-level,
because the course covers what you need to know. You’ll have
24/7 access to our own computing labs, based on Microsoft Windows
and Linux, plus a wide range of software. This degree builds the essential skills which are in demand from
employers looking for systems analysts, software engineers and
consultants. You’ll graduate with a wide range of computing skills plus a
highly developed approach to problem solving. Recent Keele graduates
have gone to work for companies as diverse as Apple, BAE Systems,
Barclays, Capgemini, EA Games, Experian, Microsoft and the Ministry
of Defence. You’ll also have the solid grounding you’ll need to apply
for postgraduate study.
For the Mathematics element of the course, you will explore the beauty, elegance and practicality
of pure mathematics, applied mathematics and statistics. You will learn to use maths to develop precise and logical arguments,
construct rigorous proofs, and formulate solutions to new problems.
You will study in an intellectually stimulating environment amongst
mathematicians producing world-leading research.
Keele enjoys high rates of graduate employment, where in 2016, were recognised nationally as 1st for employability in the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education survey. Mathematics helps you to take novel approaches to problem solving
and make critical interpretations of data and text; your skills will be in
demand wherever there’s a need for logical thinking. An extremely wide
range of career paths is open to mathematicians, where high levels
of mathematical ability are desirable. This can include fields of work
as diverse as finance, data analytics, teaching, engineering, medical
statistics and management consultancy.
