Today, mathematics is used in most fields, including technology, natural science, engineering, medicine, finance and the social sciences such as sociology and psychology. This Industrial and Applied Mathematics Major is designed to provide students with the skills in mathematics, engineering and computing and to apply them to problems arising in business, industry and government.

This major is part of the Bachelor of Advanced Science (Honours), a course designed for high performing students to pursue their interest in Science through a core of research, leadership and entrepreneurship. It provides a flexible and personalised approach to studying Industrial and Applied Mathematics with students able to explore the field through for-credit immersive research experiences, industry placement and/or interdisciplinary team-based projects. The major culminates in a capstone experience in which students will have the opportunity to pursue Mathematics projects that may be based anywhere from pure research right through to translational (entrepreneurial) science.

Mathematics is the study of concepts such as quantity, structure, space and change and to use these concepts to model and describe the behaviour of real world complex systems. It has been described as the science of patterns, whether found in numbers, space, science, engineering, computers, imaginary abstractions or elsewhere. Through abstraction and logical reasoning, mathematics evolved from counting, calculation, measurement and the systemic study of the shapes and motions of physical objects.

The major includes units in advanced calculus and linear algebra that provide foundation knowledge as well as units in modelling and optimisation, network design and analysis, logistics, supply chain networks, transportation networks, computational mathematics, statistics and probability. Industry-based units and a work experience program will help students to experience real applications.

Graduates are well equipped with the tools to address the key problems that need to be solved to improve the efficiency and productivity of business and industry.

Please note, beginning your studies in July may increase the duration of this course beyond four years due to unit availabilities.
