The Bachelor of Mathematical and Computer Sciences is a flexible degree designed for students fascinated by computer-based solutions, analysing and interpreting data, and predicting and modelling outcomes to solve problems. The degree develops expertise in mathematics, statistics and computing, together with intellectual rigour and logical thinking skills. Students work with a program advisor to develop an individual study program tailored to their specific interest areas and career goals. Core courses cover applied and pure mathematics, computer science, and statistics, with a variety of electives also offered. These are taken from areas including: business; design; engineering; finance; history; language; music; philosophy; politics; psychology; and the social sciences.


Students take courses to the value of 72 units, of which at least 36 units must be mathematical and/or computer sciences courses. The mathematical/computer sciences courses must include Mathematics IA and IB and level 3 courses to the value of 12 units. The remaining courses can be taken from computer science, mathematics or statistics and/or from selected courses available in a wide range of other disciplines across the University.
