When you choose the Mathematics major in a Bachelor of Science at RMIT, you'll link theory to practice, applying your knowledge and practical skills to solve industry problems.
Mathematics is more than just numbers and letters. It is the ability to problem solve, think logically and identify similar patterns in a variety of applications and contexts. It is also the transcribing of these patterns and relationships into symbolic or abstract form as a mathematical model, making it possible to analyse the patterns, identify the mechanisms that generate them and find solutions to the real-world system or problem that the model represents.
By studying an (applied) mathematics major at RMIT you will learn to think logically, approach problems in analytical and creative ways, and prepare for career opportunities in areas such as banking finance, information security, cybersecurity, public health, logistics, government agencies and research organisations, mathematical biology, and environmental modelling to name a few. You will acquire the skills to:
Choosing an (applied) mathematics and statistics double major will give you access to a capstone work integrated learning experience in your third year in which you will apply theory to an industry-sourced project and/or real-world problem. Work-placements and industry seminars will offer connections with industry, reinforce your communication and organisation skills, and strengthen your employability upon graduation.
With the Bachelor of Science at RMIT you will enjoy a cross-disciplinary, flexible and personalised degree that allows you to pursue a range of diverse interest areas across business. You will gain practical real-world experience throughout your degree.
Solve current industry problems in your WIL capstone project with feedback and engagement from industry professionals.
Build a balanced combination of soft skills, analytical and problem-solving abilities for developing models of complex systems.
Immerse yourself in global mobility experience that gives you the opportunity to study for one or two semesters abroad.
In mathematics, we learn both complex concepts at a higher level and how it applies to real-world situations. A particular highlight is using this knowledge to solve contemporary problems during industry placements, a work integrated learning experience that prepares students for success in their careers.
