What will I learn?

Studying a double degree in science and mathematics will provide you with advanced knowledge and skills that are highly sought after by employers. A stronger training in mathematics and statistics enhances your capabilities in modelling analysis and design. Graduates find work in a diverse range of exciting fields. Some examples include natural resources, agriculture, genetics, chemistry and biochemistry, infection and disease control, bioinformatics, physical measuring and imaging techniques.

Highlights

Combine science and maths to gain skills in mathematical modelling, analysis and design to help solve complex problems.
Complete two separate degrees in 4 years full-time.
Develop advanced knowledge and skills that are highly sought after by employers.
Study a science major in biological sciences, chemistry, earth science, environmental science or physics.
Specialise in applied and computational mathematics, operations research, or statistics.

Career outcomes

Graduates find work in a diverse range of exciting fields. Some examples include:

natural resources: measuring fish populations and predicting sustainable fishing limits
agriculture: from climate modelling to the interaction between crop yields and prices, harvest schedules and environmental impacts
genetics: including gene sequencing and quantitative genetics
chemistry and biochemistry: operations research and statistical techniques to improve workflow processes of chemical laboratories. Scientific computation and visualisation related to research areas such as drug design using combinatorial chemistry
infection and disease control: using statistics and mathematical modelling
bioinformatics: analysing and modelling data arising in molecular biology, genome sequencing and gene networks
physical measuring and imaging techniques: measuring and modelling using applied and computational mathematics.
