Details

Why choose this course?

Mathematics and information technology are interrelated disciplines. This double degree provides you with the knowledge and skills to develop solutions for complex problems that provide great benefits to society. In the first year you will build a foundation in mathematics and information technology and then select integrated strands combining units from the areas of applied and computational mathematics, decision science and statistical science with the combined information technology specialisation of your choice. 

Career outcomes

Mathematics underpins much of information technology, especially in the more advanced areas of development and analysis. As a graduate you may find employment as a data visualisation specialist, operations research specialist, computational scientist, statistician (there is high demand in the insurance industry), or work in complex system and scientific modelling.

Professional recognition

Graduates may be eligible for membership in the Australian Mathematical Society (AMS), ANZIAM (Australia and New Zealand Industrial and Applied Mathematics, a division of AMS), the Australian Society for Operations Research Inc. (ASOR) and the Statistical Society of Australia, depending on unit selections. This course is accredited by the Australian Computer Society (ACS). ACS accreditation is internationally recognised by the Seoul Accord.

Financial support

You should consider applying for an industry-sponsored mathematics bursary or an information technology scholarship to help you financially throughout your studies.
