Why study for a Master's in Computing or Mathematics from Brunel University
Brunel is a world-class university based in Uxbridge, West London. Now over 40 years old, our mission has always been to combine academic rigour with the practical, entrepreneurial and imaginative approach pioneered by our namesake Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
At Brunel you can expect:
The School of Information Systems, Computing and Mathematics
School of Information Systems, Computing and Mathematics Scholarships are now open

The School of Information Systems, Computing and Mathematics comprises two of the UK's highly-rated departments - Information Systems & Computing, and Mathematical Sciences, and has a large and thriving postgraduate student population of over 360 students.
The School achieved excellent results in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise: The Department of Information Systems and Computing is ranked top in the country in its area in terms of 'Research Power', while almost 60% of the research in the Mathematical Sciences Department has been rated 'World-Leading' or 'Internationally Excellent'.
Since its foundation over 40 years ago, Brunel has always built strong relationships with business and industry both at home and overseas. This strength is one of the ways in which we enhance the employability of our graduates. We have excellent links with business and we ensure that the latest developments in the commercial world feed into all our courses.
Real world applications
Our students have opportunities to apply their learning to real world outcomes, and on one of our courses, MSc in Business Systems Integration (with SAP Technology), students gain hands-on experience of SAP technology and the opportunity to take a recognised SAP TERP 10 industry qualification. In fact, this year, SAP Analytics Services, in cooperation with UNICEF, ran an Analytics Dashboard competition for University Alliance partners across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). The focus of the exercise was that of providing UNICEF with a greater degree of insight on their donors.
We entered a team of students and were delighted when we were ranked second out of twenty-eight teams entered from across EMEA. See here for more information about the competition.
Another special feature of our Computing courses in the department is the opportunity for our students to carry out an Industrial Dissertation Programme (IDP). They carry out their dissertations in collaboration with companies, thereby enhancing the skills and knowledge acquired during the course. The IDP gives our students the opportunity to apply state-of-the-art technology to a real-world situation and is an ideal environment in which to complete their dissertation.
Opportunities to learn from Business and Industry
Brunel prides itself on preparing our graduates with all the skills and information they need to compete for the jobs they want. We have excellent links with business and we ensure that the latest developments in the commercial world feed into all our courses. As part of this process, we invite colleagues from industry to come and teach on some of our modules. This gives our students an invaluable insight into the real world and makes the courses more enjoyable too.
Our industrial colleagues bring the knowledge of day-to-day commercial practice to bear on the subject they are teaching. They help students to see how the theory learned from lectures and reading, and the experience developed from completing coursework, is applied in practice. This enhances, and contextualises the academic work, and helps students to prepare for the workplace.
