What will I learn?

Prepare yourself to research and develop the next big breakthroughs in technology and science with this dual degree program.

This four-year dual program will provide you with a focused background in computer science, and in-depth knowledge and expertise you'll gain through the mathematics program.

Computer science combines the theoretical studies of algorithms and data structures with practical training in implementing them in hardware and software systems. Skills learnt in this program are used in fields ranging from bioinformatics to digital humanities.

You'll develop the strong analytical, logical and development expertise necessary to advance computing and its applications. You can specialise in cyber security, data science, machine learning, programming languages or scientific computing.

In the mathematics component, you'll develop a comprehensive specialised knowledge in one field of mathematics or a high level of sophistication in the applications of mathematics generally.

Modern computation, advances in scientific technology and the increasing production of data have all increased how mathematics is applied beyond traditional areas, opening up your career opportunities to include fields such as finance, economics, information technology and molecular biology.

There is increasing recognition that graduates with high-level quantitative and analytical skills will play a key role at the forefront of new developments in these and other fields.

Data Science

Our world is creating more data than we can process, which presents enormous challenges associated with storage, management and analysis.

You'll learn comprehensive and fundamental techniques for end-to-end processing that transforms data into information, and prepare to become one of the new breed of data science professionals.

This major will prepare you for a career in government departments, consultancy or private sector organisations.
