The University of Southampton
Mathematical Sciences


In Mathematical Sciences we are keen to develop partnerships with business, public sector organisations and NGOs to help address business challenges.

In the past three years alone we have worked with over 100 different partners from global brands such as Boeing, Glaxo Smith Kline, the World Health Organisation and Tesco, to national and local organisations including Southampton City Council and Dstl.

If you are interested in finding out more about ways that Mathematical Sciences at the University of Southampton could help your organisation, we would be pleased to hear from you. Visit the Contact us page.

Key collaborations

Statistics - from planning drug trials to advising on the National Census.

Fundamental mathematics - for example using graph theory to analyse the stability of electricity transmission networks.

The modelling of physical systems - from plant root development to the growth of cancerous tumours.

The modelling and optimisation of designed systems - getting the most from the food chain, the location of healthcare facilities or airport runway capacity.

In the past we have worked with enlightened organisations to create new approaches to analysis and optimisation of the design of complex engineered products such as an engine; to develop fast algorithms to solve matrix correlation problems used in managing financial portfolios; to build an optimisation toolkit for multi-dimensional, multi-attribute problems faced by space industry engineers and planners.
