O que eu aprenderei?

Develop your knowledge of mathematics within an environmental context, and improve your employability with a placement year in industry. This course includes an industrial training placement between your second and third years.You will develop your mathematics skills whilst gaining a broad knowledge of meteorology and environmental physical science, with roughly equal amounts of time spent on each subject. 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. This fascinating subject will appeal to anyone who enjoys problem-solving and wants to hone their analytical skills.In meteorology, you will explore the inner workings of weather systems from a physical and dynamic viewpoint. We ranked 2nd in the world for research in Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences (World University Rankings by Subject, 2017) and achieved a student satisfaction score of 100% for the quality of our courses in the latest National Student Survey, 2017. The course is theory-based and will cover subjects such as atmospheric physics, numerical methods, climate change, and weather and climate fundamentals. A skills module in second year is designed to improve your transferable skills and enhance your employability. In your final year can develop your knowledge by exploring areas of interest in greater depth. Optional modules include subjects from both areas of the course such as water waves, fluid mechanics and oceanography. During this year you will complete either a meteorological or mathematical research project.Many of our teaching staff are world leaders in their fields and a number are Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) authors and Fellows of the Royal Society. We also have a Regius Professor of Meteorology and Climate Science. The University is one of only 19 institutes in the UK to have been awarded one of these prestigious positions by Her Majesty the Queen.You will be given advice and support for finding the ideal placement, as well writing a CV and interview skills, by our dedicated placements officer.This programme will meet the educational requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation, awarded by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, when it is followed by subsequent training and experience in employment to obtain equivalent competences to those specified by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for taught masters degrees. It is also approved by the Royal Meteorological Society as appropriate academic training for meteorologists seeking the qualifications of Chartered Meteorologist (CMet) or Registered Meteorologist (RMet).**Careers**As a mathematics graduate, you can choose to work as a mathematician for public sector organisations, such as health authorities or the Office for National Statistics, or areas of the private sector including commerce and information technology. You could also move into a range of related careers in accountancy, financial analysis, engineering, computing or actuarial work.Your meteorological knowledge will enable you to work as a forecaster or research scientist at a national organisation, such as the UK Met Office, or a commercial company. Financial businesses are increasingly employing weather forecasters to advise traders of the possible outcomes of the weather on prices of commodities, and a number of our graduates now work in this area.Alternatively you can choose
