Bachelor of Mathematics - New in 2018

Overview

Designed in collaboration with industry, we have developed a new degree which fosters a balanced mix of mathematics, information technology and data science skills. You’ll undertake an industry based capstone project or participate in Maths Clinic in your final year to experience real world challenges and gain valuable experience before graduating. 

Successful completion of this degree can also be used to progress to an honours degree, providing a pathway to undertake a PhD if desired.

This degree offers students flexibility with some courses available online.

Projecting a successful career


Elizabeth Bradford 

 Bachelor of Mathematical Sciences

“The Maths Clinic is very valuable, I’m doing a subject where I am a project manager; I’m working in industry and learning how to work with others. I’m leaning towards a career in defence, but because maths is so generic I could work anywhere!”
