Industrial Applications of Mathematics

Module code: MA2511

This module aims to develop your understanding of business terminology and how business works and to give you the chance to experience applications of mathematics and mathematical modelling in a business context.

In business situations, problems can arise in applying mathematics and, unlike in the classroom:

  • Problems often aren‘t  defined
  • Problems do not fall into obvious categories
  • It will not be obvious which techniques to use
  • The data may not be there

This module will help you tackle these issues and will help your ability to apply your mathematical skills in real-world situations.

Plus, this module will help you identify employability skills and reflect upon how to evidence such skills in CVs and applications for graduate employment and postgraduate study.
