# BSc (Hons) Mathematics with High Performance Computing

Supercomputers represent the frontier of numerical research. They need special programming so they can be used for simulations and extracting information from big data. As an expert in high performance computing (HPC), you will understand the logic and define the algorithms to harness this technology. The course covers simulations and data analysis including extracting information from big data. Complete this degree through a project on our HPC cluster with the help of a leading expert.

We’re very proud of being top in the Guardian Mathematics University League Table for 2019 for satisfaction with the course. We are also fourth for satisfaction with mathematics teaching. This is part of a record of students regularly saying that they enjoy our degrees and teaching.

## The Plymouth Mathematics Scholarship

**Up to £1,000**

Students are automatically paid £500 for an A in Mathematics A level and/or a further sum of £500 for an A in Further Mathematics. This is awarded to home/EU applicants who put us as their firm choice before the 1 August 2019. The scholarship is paid during the first semester of the first year.

There are additional prizes and awards to reward high achievement in later years of the degree.
