Mathematics with a Professional Placement Year (MMath)
This version of the MMath degree features an employability-enhancing third year working in a paid mathematician and/or statistician role.
The MMath with a Professional Placement Year is a great choice if you would like to gain a deeper understanding of mathematics while gaining real-world experience in a paid mathematician or statistician role. This course expands on the BSc to prepare you for high-level entry into relevant professions. It’s also a solid base for pursuing a research career.
This course is the same as the four-year BSc with a Professional Placement Year with an additional fifth year of study where you will complete a major piece of project work, such as:
a survey of an existing area of mathematical theory not covered in taught modules
an introductory research project
the development of a piece of mathematical software
Not only will you explore a research topic of your choice, but you will also develop the crucial professional skills that graduate employers are looking for. You will show that you are at the forefront of the discipline through extensive coverage of topics such as Mathematical Analysis, Mathematical Physics, and Fluid Dynamics.
In a competitive graduate job market, a placement can help you gain extra skills and experience to make you stand out from the crowd. It could help you to secure a permanent role after you graduate, as well as providing real-world context to support your studies. If you're not sure what career path to follow, it's a great opportunity to explore your options. It might help you make those all-important decisions about your future.
Our current students are taking advantage of our strong industry links and completing exciting placements in organisations such as:
HM Revenue & Customs
the Ministry of Defence

Supplementing your studies
We offer students the option of taking a Year in Industry after their second year of study, which is spent in a professional workplace gaining hands-on experience. This experience can simultaneously improve students’ confidence and employment prospects.
Our MEng (Hons) programmes also have the option of a Year in Europe, which is a year spent at an institution in France, Germany or Spain, after the third year of study. This is a chance not only for students to broaden their personal horizons, but also to develop further academic skills.
Links with industry
Students who are not on the Year in Industry scheme still benefit from industrial input in modules across all engineering disciplines. School-wide project modules are supported by industrial collaboration with a number of companies, including Flintec, Ove Arup and Partners International, Atkins, GL Garrard Hassan, BAE Systems, EADS, and Babcock Marine.
In the waste management, recycling, and energy fields there is significant input from research contracts with companies such as Rolls Royce, EoN, Tata Steel, and Stork Technical Services. Inputs are also received from companies such as Tidal Energy Ltd (TEL), Marine Current Turbines (part of Siemens), Bosch, ANSYS and Mabey Bridge.
In environmental and water engineering, presentations are given by industrially sponsored lecturers from CH2MHILL and Lusas. Direct industrial input also comes from companies including Newport Galvanisers (a subsidiary of Wedge Galvanisers), GBCard and Partners, Jacobs Engineering, Capita Symonds, and Mott-MacDonald.
In today's competitive graduate job market, we recognise that students are always looking for ways to make them stand out to prospective employers. Each year, our students have the opportunity to get involved with some really exciting projects.
Aside from this, there are many extra-curricular opportunities, both social and serious, organised through the School, the University or the Students’ Union.
