If you’re buying a computer for university, please do consider a standard laptop (running MS Windows or MacOS X) over a desktop, Chromebook or tablet etc. as such a laptop will be used for the Computational Mathematics practical sessions and project work in the first year. The Computational Mathematics course uses Matlab, for which the University has a site licence. The software can be downloaded from IT Services and to save time you should install it prior to the first practical session. If you do not have a laptop you will be able to borrow one for the sessions, and can apply for access to the computers in the Undergraduate Study Room to work on your projects, please contact Academic Admin to make arrangements.
