Outline

Outline

Mathematics is the study of concepts such as quantity, structure, space and change; and the use of these concepts to model and describe the behaviour of real-world complex systems. It can be described as the science of patterns – whether found in numbers, space, science, engineering, computers, imaginary abstractions or elsewhere.

This course includes studies in advanced calculus and linear algebra that provide foundation knowledge and units in modelling and optimisation, network design and analysis, logistics, supply chain networks, transportation networks, computational mathematics, statistics and probability.

Through project-based units, elective units and diverse skills workshops, you will be able to tailor your studies to your career goals. Your final-year capstone experience will also give you the opportunity to pursue mathematics projects ranging from pure research through to translational (entrepreneurial) science. Upon graduating, you'll be well-equipped to address issues and improve the efficiency of business and industry.

This course is a Bachelor of Advanced Science (Honours) course, designed for high-performing students to pursue their interest in science through a core of research, leadership and entrepreneurship. It provides you with opportunities to source and undertake internal and external internships and immersive work experiences, which can be used for course credit.

How this course will make you industry ready

This course teaches advanced mathematics and statistics and their real-world applications in engineering, mining and industrial modelling.

Curtin has strong links with industry and the business world through the Statistics Group and the Western Australian Centre of Excellence in Industrial Optimisation. As a result, the units offered are designed to develop the practical skills needed to address real-world problems.

A work experience program runs from second year onwards, exposing you to real applications of your mathematical studies, and introducing you to potential employers.

Through embedded research and industry engagement you'll have the opportunity to investigate multiple areas of specialisation and tailor your final-year experience to prepare for the industry of your choice.
