Bachelor of Science - Mathematics

RMIT University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00122A

As an RMIT Mathematics student you'll learn to think logically and approach problems in analytical and creative ways. RMIT offers one of the only stand-alone applied mathematics undergraduate programs in Australia where you are enrolled in a mathematics program from the first day. You'll be provided with flexible subject selection options in order to tailor to your needs. Theory is applied to practical projects and real-world scenarios, while work-placement opportunities offer connections with industry. The learning experience is also strengthened through global mobility opportunities such as international exchange. Mathematics graduates often work in multidisciplinary teams with scientists, engineers and business analysts, on industrial, scientific, environmental and economic problems. Career opportunities cover a wide variety of industries, including banking and finance, environmental modelling, information security, logistics, health, engineering or education and research.

Structure

You will undertake core studies in applied mathematics, together with a broad range of options. In first year, you'll study the basics of calculus, statistics, discrete mathematics, mathematical programming and problem-solving. In second and third years, you'll continue with more advanced applied mathematics courses. These will include mathematical modelling and computational methods alongside fundamental mathematical techniques needed by mathematics graduates. You will also undertake two industry-related subjects and eight electives. At each year level, you'll participate in a work-integrated learning course. This typically involves teamwork on a real-world industry problem.

Subjects

  • Analytics, Applied mathematics, Environmental modelling, Finance, Mathematical computing, Modelling, Operations research, Optimisation, Statistics.
