Jointly run with the Department of Mathematics

Overview

With the spread of computing procedures and mathematical ideas into many areas, there is high demand for professionals who are expert in both.

Our Mathematics and Computer Science degrees are mathematical courses orientated towards computing science.

Taught jointly by the Departments of Computing and Mathematics, they provide a firm foundation in mathematics, particularly in pure mathematics, numerical analysis and statistics. They also cover all the essentials of computer science, with an emphasis on developing software, as well as more theoretical topics.

This makes the courses particularly suited to mathematically-able students with interests in both subjects.

Study programme

During the first two years you take core modules from both departments and complete project work, with the chance to choose some optional modules in the second year.

As the degree progresses, you can choose from a wide variety of optional modules offered by the departments to suit your interests.

In the third year you will also complete a four-month industrial placement, gaining valuable skills and experience.

Your study reaches Master’s level in the final year, with a wide choice of advanced modules and a substantial individual project on a subject of your choice.

Transfer between courses

Transfer between the BEng in Mathematics and Computer Science and MEng in Mathematics and Computer Science is possible until the end of Year 2 subject to meeting certain minimum results criteria.

If you are an international student, transferring to a different course could have an impact on your Tier 4 visa. Please visit our International Student Support webpage for further information.

Professional accreditation

This course is professionally accredited by IET (Institution of Engineering and Technology) and BCS (the Chartered Institute for IT).

Achieving a professionally accredited integrated Master's degree (MEng) means that you have satisfied the first step to becoming a Chartered Engineer (CEng) in your chosen field by satisfying the educational requirements of professional registration. To gain Chartered status, you will need to demonstrate your ability to meet additional graduate level competences described in the Engineering Council's UK-SPEC

A CEng is a highly respected qualification earned by professionals working in engineering, which can lead to higher earning potential and better career prospects.

Professional registration also brings international recognition of your qualification, which is particularly useful for students preparing for a career abroad.

Our professional accreditation agreements with IET and BCS are renewed every five years, and our current agreements are due to be renewed for students beginning this course from the 2023–24 (IET) and 2024–25 (BCS) academic years.

Associateship

As well as your main Imperial degree, you will also receive the award of the Associateship of the City and Guilds of London Institute (ACGI) on completion of this course.

The City and Guilds of London Institute is one of three historic Colleges that came together to form Imperial College London in 1907.

Selection process

Assessing your application

Admissions Tutors consider all the evidence available during our rigorous selection process and the College flags key information providing assessors with a more complete picture of the educational and social circumstances relevant to the applicant. Some applicants may be set lower offers and some more challenging ones.


Post-application open day and interview

Applicants demonstrating sufficient potential will be invited to complete an online admissions test, which will test their logical, reasoning and problem-solving skills. No prior preparation is required for the test. The test will include a practice session, and should not take more than 90 minutes.

The test must be taken on a computer with an internet connection.

If your UCAS application and online test performance indicates that you are likely to satisfy our requirements, you will be invited to the department to attend an interview day. This enables us to get an impression of your motivation, your suitability for the course and your potential for success in an engineering career. Equally importantly, it gives you a chance to find out more about the courses and about Imperial in general.

The interview day consists of:

  • a welcome presentation from the Admissions Tutor
  • a guided tour of the facilities at the Department and College
  • demonstrations of undergraduate projects
  • a 1-1 interview with one of our lecturers

We prefer all applicants to attend an interview day in person, but where there are reasons as to why this would not be possible, alternative arrangements such as Skype may be considered on a case by case basis. Reasonable circumstances of not being able to attend an interview day may include interview days clashing with exams or other important school dates, financial considerations, or time constraints in applying for a visa.


Pilot admissions schemes (Home students)

From 2020 entry, we will be using information about our applicants in a number of new pilot admissions schemes, to consider the wider context of Home students from groups underrepresented at the College.

Tuition fees and funding

We charge tuition fees for every year that your course lasts. The fee you will be charged is based on your fee status, which is determined by government regulations.

Home rate of tuition

2021 entry

£9,250 per year.

For each subsequent year, you should expect and budget for your tuition fee to increase by an amount in line with inflation. The measure of inflation used will be the Retail Price Index (RPIX) value, taken from April in the calendar year in which the academic session starts. For example, the RPIX value in April 2022 will apply to fees for the academic year 2022–2023.

Whether you pay the Home fee depends on your fee status. Your fee status is assessed based on UK Government legislation and includes things like where you live and your nationality or residency status. Find out more about how we assess your fee status.

Government funding

If you're a Home student, you can apply for a Tuition Fee Loan from the UK government to cover the entire cost of tuition for every year of your course.

You can also apply for a means-tested Maintenance Loan to help towards your living costs.

EU/EEA students

The Government has confirmed that EU students who begin a course in the 2020–21 academic year (until the end of July 2021) will be eligible to pay the same fee as Home students and have access to student finance for the duration of their course, as long as they meet certain requirements which are unchanged from previous years. This includes students who begin the course remotely.

Students from the EU, other EEA and/or Switzerland starting a course on or after 1 August 2021 will no longer be eligible for the Home fee rate, and so will be charged the Overseas fee. Please note this does not apply to Irish students or students with Citizens Rights benefitting from Citizens’ Rights under the EU Withdrawal Agreement, EEA EFTA Separation Agreement or Swiss Citizens’ Rights Agreement respectively.

For regular updates for EU students, please see our Imperial and the EU webpages.

Overseas rate of tuition

2021 entry

£33,750 per year.

For each subsequent year, you should expect and budget for your tuition fee to increase by an amount in line with inflation. The measure of inflation used will be the Retail Price Index (RPIX) value, taken from April in the calendar year in which the academic session starts. For example, the RPIX value in April 2022 will apply to fees for the academic year 2022–2023.

Whether you pay the Overseas fee depends on your fee status. Your fee status is assessed based on UK Government legislation and includes things like where you live and your nationality or residency status. Find out more about how we assess your fee status.
