The School of Mathematics
The School of Mathematics at the University of Manchester is one of the largest integrated departments of mathematical sciences in the UK and covers the entire breadth of the subject, including pure and applied mathematics, probability and statistics. It has an international reputation for its research, with over 20% of its activity rated ‘world leading’ in the Research Assessment Exercise 2008. The school has the largest cohort of mathematics undergraduates in the UK and offers a comprehensive range of degree programmes and modules, including the new degree in Actuarial Science and Mathematics. Our vibrant postgraduate programme includes seven Masters Courses and PhD programmes covering a wide range of research interests.
Contacting Our Students
As well as welcoming representatives from industry to the School for the annual Calculating Careers Fair, we are always happy to make arrangements for individual companies to arrange to deliver a lecture regarding their industry and opportunities. If you would like to discuss the options for communicating with our students, please contact Helen Harper.
Collaboration with Industry and Business
The School of Mathematics has a strong track record of collaboration with industry and other external partners. This ranges from helping you to recruit a suitable maths graduate, and final year projects in collaboration with industry, through to research projects.
There are many mechanisms by which research collaborations can be initiated, such as the sponsorship of a PhD, through to a large-scale industry supported research venture. Indeed, the University currently has an £8.3m Knowledge Transfer account, designed to part-fund research between the University and industry over the next two years.
If you are interested in discussing possible collaborations and projects, please contact Dr. Geoff Evatt, our Mathematics Technology Translator, or Professor Bill Lionheart, our Director of External Affairs.
