Mathematics at Swansea
Mathematics is more than 6000 years old, its contribution to human culture can hardly be overstated. With such a history, Mathematics as a pure and theoretical discipline does not need any justification. Nowadays, it is one of the most important subjects, without which nothing in our modern, highly technological dependent world would work.
As the development of science and technology continues, more sophisticated mathematics is required. Topics which have been studied theoretically in the past are now proving to be important in quantum physics, computer design, engineering and the financial industry. On the other hand, new mathematical topics are being invented and used to explain discoveries in physics, chemistry, and biology.
In addition to its importance in scientfic applications, a mathematical training equips students to solve problems in all walks of life. A mathematics degree is highly valued in the job market and graduates from Swansea have little difficulty finding interesting and rewarding employment.
