Mathematics at NTU is situated within the Department of Physics and Mathematics

Our portfolio of courses is diverse and popular, covering foundation level through to a suite of BSc degrees, integrated Masters, postgraduate taught and PhD opportunities. Our teaching aims to be exciting, innovative, relevant and highly regarded, with mathematics performing consistently well in the National Student Survey. The link between teaching and research manifests itself in enhanced 'hands-on' research opportunities for our students. Wherever possible, our courses are approved by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications.

Departmental research is extremely strong in terms of high quality outputs, funding income, and international impact and the mathematics staff contribute in areas that represent the very best of NTU's research activity. Our existing multidisciplinary research strengths are broadly in the field of applied mathematics with applications to biomedical and life sciences, engineering, computing and industry, and include: applied statistics, numerical analysis, mathematical biology including large networks, bioinformatics, quantum information theory and imaging science.

The mathematics team includes many Fellows of the Higher Education Academy and two winners of the coveted NTU Vice Chancellor's Teaching Award. Staff work hard to provide a learning environment that is delivered with the 'personal touch' that gives the Department its distinctive character. Students and graduates from our courses are enriched by the many experiences that the University and Department provide and gain the knowledge and hands-on skills that are valued by employers.
