More information about the Mathematics discipline

Mathematics is the science of quantity, space and spatial relations, change and structure. It employs theories and methods to discover patterns and formulate laws. Through abstraction and logical reasoning, mathematics is used for counting, calculations and measurements of any kind. This science is very frequently used in day to day life and is essential even for the activity of many other fields. Applied mathematics is focused on the use of mathematical knowledge in other fields like science and engineering, while pure mathematics is concerned with the filed itself. Statistics, game theory and computational mathematics are a few of the disciplines that have evolved from applied mathematics.

A student graduating from mathematics studies will have numeracy skills, knowledge of arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, good grasp of mathematical concepts and strong deductive reasoning, just to name a few. The graduates can also dedicate themselves to a teaching oriented career, in which they have to combine the mathematics related knowledge with pedagogy skills and convey the knowledge further to students.

Suggested Study Programmes

  • Master in Applied Mathematics

    These guidelines are intended to help familiarize graduate students in the Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Applied Mathematics program with the policies governing this degree program. All the guidelines apply to both the on-campus M.Sc. degree and the on-line M.Sc. degree, unless otherwise specified.

  • Master in Applied Mathematics

    At UC San Diego, we provide courses of study that introduce students to the fundamentals of mathematics and allow them to master the most important parts of the subject both pure and applied. By offering four graduate programs, and with a faculty encompassing a variety of fields, the department seeks to accommodate varied student interests in mathematics, encouraging an interdisciplinary focus that fosters program diversity.

  • Master in Pure Mathematics

    At UC San Diego, we provide courses of study that introduce students to the fundamentals of mathematics and allow them to master the most important parts of the subject both pure and applied. By offering four graduate programs, and with a faculty encompassing a variety of fields, the department seeks to accommodate varied student interests in mathematics, encouraging an interdisciplinary focus that fosters program diversity.

  • Master in Graduate Diploma of Science

    USQ’s Graduate Diploma of Science is an eight unit qualification aimed at those of you who have completed a three-year university degree. Offering a variety of majors, including Agricultural Science, Environment and Sustainability, Physics and Astronomy and Mathematics and Statistics, the flexible program enables you to acquire knowledge and skills relevant to your current or future career. Don’t live near a USQ campus? Don’t worry. Utilising cutting-edge online teaching technologies and communication methods, the degree is accessible to those of you living anywhere in Australia or overseas.

  • Master in Operations Research

    Master's degree candidates in Operations Research are required to write a thesis based on independent, usually applied, research. SM students are required to present their research to the OR Community at the end of their second year, prior to their graduation. The presentation should be scheduled for at least an hour and an announcement should be sent to the ORC students and faculty via email two weeks in advance. Students generally allow for a two-year program.

  • Master in Applied Mathematics & Statistics

    Applied mathematics and statistics is an integral part of emerging fields such as computational medicine/biology, language processing, information security, and computer science. In today’s data-intensive world, it is used to answer questions and solve problems in areas as diverse as finance, government and law, medicine, and national defense.

  • Master in Applied Mathematics

    This academic program, for students registered in the Department of Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics, emphasizes applied mathematics research in nonlinear dynamics, fluid mechanics, and scientific computation, with a current emphasis on geophysical, biophysical, and plasma physics applications.

  • Master in Telecommunications

    The Master's in Telecommunications Program offers students a unique opportunity to engage in cross-disciplinary coursework from both the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of the A. James Clark School of Engineering and the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland. This extraordinary combination culminates in a degree that prepares students for the broad range of rigors and issues that encompass the dynamic telecommunications industry.

  • Master in Public Engagement with Science

    Taught by university academics and utilising the expertise and experience of professional staff from the Centre for Life, the course will foster your skills in intellectual analysis through a range of modules, culminating in an investigative research project.
