What will I learn?

Learn how to solve theoretical and applied mathematics problems across science, engineering, information technology, economics and business, and gain the foundation for a successful career.

You will develop comprehensive specialised knowledge in your chosen field of mathematics, or a high level of sophistication in the applications of mathematics generally. You can then apply your knowledge to sectors of the economy including finance, economics, information technology and molecular biology.

You'll gain quantitative and analytical skills, along with a foundation of calculus, linear algebra, discrete mathematics, mathematical analysis and modelling. You will also develop a deep knowledge of mathematical topics and a high level of sophistication in the application of mathematics across a variety of fields and industries.

As a graduate, you'll further benefit from our mathematics research and industry networks, which will widen your career options and help you excel in the mathematical aspects of other disciplines.

Mathematical Physics

This major focuses on the mathematical foundations of modern physical theories.

It also examines the mathematical understanding that underpins a broad range of contemporary sciences, including statistical mechanics, relativity and quantum theory. You'll learn how to understand and describe nature at its most fundamental levels.

This major not only prepares you for research in mathematical physics and related disciplines, but also fosters creativity and develops high-level skills in critical and analytical thinking, which are paramount in problem-solving.

You may choose to combine your major with a minor in bioinformatics, computational science, computer science, physics or statistics.
