Applied Mathematics / Data Science (ENG) full-time

Applied Mathematics is at the core of all engineering branches.

What can you do with a Bachelor's in Applied Mathematics/Data Science

One of the most important reasons why mathematical engineers can have their pick of career opportunities - with 'data scientist' proudly topping the job charts - is because they graduate with a broadly combinable set of marketable and specialised technical skills. We take their future, and the responsibility that comes with the power to create change, very seriously - and we are proud of everyone that has earned their degree here.

Applied Mathematics Jobs

Let's make the Top 3 a little more concrete:

As a Data Scientist…
…you design, test and perfect predictive models that turn data from raw to applicable in whatever field you work in. It combines your pure mathematical and IT skills evenly and gives you the expertise to create tools to influence a company’s decisions. This can be in the fields of tech, AI, deep or machine learning, but also within any sector that inspires you, like media, healthcare, gaming, music, finance and logistics.

As a Software Engineer…
…you will lean a bit more towards IT by developing and maintaining apps, data systems, or any other type of software you specialise in. This programme gives you the education you’ll need to be a professional back-end or data-driven programmer, and provides optional tracks that enable other careers in IT. You can do this in a company, but also as a private consultant or to grow your own business.

As a Data Analyst…
…you will use statistical models created by data scientists, to find patterns in data and make predictions. Ethics is a key skill in this line of work. You will be collecting, combining and interpreting data that can change the course of a company or cause. Within data analytics, you can specialise as well, for example, to become a business, finance, logistics or risk assessment analyst.
