School of Mathematics and Physics

Maths and Physics Banner


The Lincoln School of Mathematics and Physics opened its doors in September 2014. It is the result of a close collaboration with industrial partners, and a £6.8m grant from the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) Catalyst Fund.

Our award-winning staff conduct cutting-edge research in fundamental and applied mathematics and physics, ranging from pure mathematics to applied nano-science at the interface between biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics. The University of Lincoln is investing heavily in state-of-the-art research facilities for staff and students in the School, including a new supercomputer.

The School is also engaged in interdisciplinary research relating to materials with the Schools of Engineering, Pharmacy, Chemistry and Life Sciences. We collaborate with top research institutions in Germany, Japan, Norway, the Netherlands, Singapore, Spain and the USA.

We offer a range of programmes from BSc up to PhD in both Mathematics and Physics, with the first undergraduate intake beginning in September 2015. Our students are immersed in a supporting and nurturing teaching environment. Research forms a key part of all our programmes, with students working individually and collaboratively on independent research, culminating in their final year project.

We look forward to meeting and working with you.
