Carrington Building, Reading Careers Advisory Service

Last week I visited Reading University. It is the Easter holiday so there are not many people around but I still had very useful meetings with Sandhya Tanna of the Reading Careers Advisory Service (building pictured to the right) and Simon Chandler-Wilde, Head of the Mathematics Department.

Maths at Reading includes a compulsory module on Maths communication skills which includes 5 credits on Career management skills. This inclusion of training in not only mathematical skills but also the skills to put across your skills and knowledge is interesting.

In the evening I attended an IMA North Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire Branch meeting, which was an interesting and lively talk by Dr Philip Bond on quantum cryptography.
