Imperial College London
Maths find its way into all corners of our teaching and research here at Imperial—but what can you expect from a degree course in the subject? Our students get better and better at doing calculations, and learn to apply the subject to a wider and wider class of problems; they also learn to think more and more carefully and rigorously about what we can really say we know. That’s what the Maths Strand will give you a taste of. You’ll divide your time among our base room, our state-of-the-art computing labs and our improvised rocket launchpad. You’ll apply calculus to space flight, and knowledge about prime numbers to the problem of secret communication. You’ll look hard at the concept of infinity, and discover it’s subtler than you may think. And you’ll see beautiful complexity emerge from simple mathematical processes.
