Ten years ago, Queen Mary had a study programme in Discrete Mathematics. We were one of the first universities in Britain to do this, and I believe they invented a special UCAS code for the course. The study programme was designed by Rosemary Bailey, Leonard Soicher and me.
The study programme had three strands, with emphasis on pure mathematics, statistics, and computer science respectively, and students could mix and match to some extent. It cost nothing, since we used existing modules in Mathematics and Computer Science, but it gave us a sense of being ahead of the game.
It didn’t last long. Although it was a good recruitment tool for undergraduates, not many of them took this particular study programme, and the administrators decided it was not worth keeping.
Recently I stumbled on the slides I used in publicity for the study programme. For historical interest, I have posted them here.
