Mathematics is one of the oldest pure sciences and is the technical language of science, engineering and business. With qualifications in mathematics, employers recognise that you are equipped with the specialist analytical skills required to tackle today’s complex scientific, computation and modelling problems.
Mathematicians and statisticians can develop new financial products in the banking industry, optimise transportation schedules in today’s busy world, or help understand customer value in the commercial world. Mathematicians can aid scientific research by data mining to discover genetics links and pathways or help to understand disease transmission of a pandemic. Computer simulation and visualisation techniques can be used in many research projects including bone fracture and wound healing and modelling saltwater intrusion in coastal systems.
Mathematics graduates play integral roles in the workplace, where they develop mathematical models and numerical algorithms to answer what-if scenarios, and design experiments to help guide research and improve processes.
Why choose this course?
QUT’s Mathematics discipline is a leader in delivering world-class teaching and research outcomes, offering you advanced, relevant and modern courses designed for the real world, underpinned by our award-winning research. Our undergraduate courses in mathematics and statistics combine the underlying theory with modelling, computational skills and the latest computer technology to enable you to solve real-world problems and prepare you for your future career. Skill development in communication, problem solving, critical thinking and teamwork form an integral part of our courses.
There is also a strong honours and postgraduate program. Entry into the Bachelor of Science (Honours) program, majoring in mathematics, from the Bachelor of Mathematics is strongly encouraged.
As a mathematics graduate you will find employment opportunities across a wide range of areas, such as finance, investment, information technology, environmental management, health, marketing, logistics, defence, media, education and research. In addition to your knowledge and abilities in mathematics, you will also be highly valued for your analytical and problem-solving skills.
On graduation you will be eligible to join the Australian Mathematical Society, the Statistical Society of Australia and the Australian Society for Operations Research.
The Bachelor of Mathematics is available for mid-year entry.
You will study core units in mathematics and statistics. These core units include studies in calculus, algebra, vectors and matrices, computational mathematics, data analysis and statistical modelling.
You will build on your core studies by advancing to more specialised topics such as advanced calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, operations research, data visualisation, statistics or modelling. Your practical assignments will tackle problems faced in the real world. You can choose to study only mathematics units or include units from another area of interest, such as science, business, information technology or a language.
Refine your studies by combining advanced units from the following specialisations:
- applied mathematics: using mathematical techniques to solve real-world problems
- computational mathematics: using computers and numerical techniques to find solutions to complex problems which cannot be solved analytically
- discrete mathematics: the mathematics of numbers, including sets, fields, rings and groups which is used extensively in information security
- financial mathematics: applying a wide variety of mathematical techniques for use in a range of financial areas
- mathematical modelling: using mathematical techniques to develop a model or explanation of a real-world problem which can then be tested
- operations research: optimising complex systems including queuing, scheduling or allocation of resources
- scientific computation and visualisation: large-scale scientific modelling and creating graphical representations using visualisation techniques
- statistics: collecting data in an appropriate format, experimental design, analysis of data and using data to make predictions
- statistical modelling: building and analysing models of systems involving probability and variables.
