Can you imagine developing the next search algorithm for Google or creating mathematical theories that help discover the secret of the universe? A degree in mathematical sciences could help you achieve just that.
Mathematical sciences is the key to analysing data and developing algorithms that turn numbers and figures into goals or projections. This is extremely valuable and those that can visualise data are highly sought after. The Bachelor of Mathematical Sciences prepares you to take advantage of these growing career opportunities. Your final year includes valuable workplace experience, working on a project for an organisation related to your major.
Consider starting with our Certificate in Science and Technology.
Certificate in Science and Technology
Choosing a major is optional. If you want to study a broad range of papers, you can complete the Bachelor of Mathematical Sciences with no major.
You study a range of technology-focused papers that have modelling applications in industry and help you develop tools for evidence-based decision-making.
Because communication skills are essential for today’s workplaces you also study a communications paper.
There is a wide range of second and third-year papers, depending on your major. For details about the papers refer to the individual major pages.
In Year 3, you may work on a real-life research and development project for an organisation related to your major. This may involve working alongside an organisation related to your major. This project gives you the all-important competitive edge for your career, and is also good preparation for postgraduate study.
