BSc Mathematics and Meteorology with a Placement Year GF20

Full Time: 4 Years
With BSc Mathematics and Meteorology with a Placement Year you will develop your knowledge of mathematics within an environmental context and improve your employability with a year in industry.
Modern weather forecasting and climate prediction rely upon accurate numerical modelling of the atmosphere and oceans. This course will enable you to develop your mathematics skills whilst gaining a broad knowledge of meteorology and environmental physical science. You will spend roughly equal amounts of time studying each subject and will gain valuable industry experience through a year-long work placement. This degree is ideal if you are considering a career applying mathematical techniques to environmental problems.
In mathematics you will study the theory and application of differential equations, underpinned by a knowledge of calculus, analysis and linear algebra. You will be given plenty of support to help you get the most out of your studies, including small group problem-solving tutorials and materials to help you manage the transition to university-level mathematics. Additionally, you can get involved with the Department's Staff Student Forums and the Student Teaching and Learning Group, which enable you to have a direct input into the student experience.
In meteorology you will explore the inner workings of weather systems from a physical and dynamic viewpoint. The course is theory-based and will cover subjects such as atmospheric physics, numerical methods, climate change, and weather and climate fundamentals. In the second year you will also take a skills module, which is designed to improve your transferable skills and enhance your employability.
