Keen mathematician and programmer, Borce Koteski will leave RMIT with some impressive industry experience under his belt, as he considers further study in the field of mathematics or statistics.
Bachelor of Science (Mathematics)
The highlight of my studies has been my CSIRO placement which has enabled me to apply my knowledge in a real industry situation.
I liked mathematics from an early age and I find a great deal of satisfaction from solving challenging problems.
I chose to study at RMIT because it offers a degree in Mathematics with the option to specialise in statistics.
I have learned to think critically and logically when approaching problems. I have also gained good working habits and extremely important IT skills through the use of industry software packages.
My favourite subjects are programming related and I love using computers to solve mathematical problems.
The program focuses on the theory and application of mathematics through work related projects and the use of industry software. These skills are highly sought after by many organisations.
The highlight of my studies has been my CSIRO placement which has enabled me to apply my knowledge in a real industry situation. My goal is to predict future fire occurrences in Victoria based on historical data. It is very rewarding to see how my skills can be applied on a real project.
As a student representative, I have been able to provide feedback to coordinators in an attempt to improve student experience.
My advice to prospective students is to make the most of the next three years. Ask a lot of questions, learn as much as possible and make friends, because in doing so it will open a lot of doors.
I plan to undertake further study in the area of computational mathematics or statistics. A holiday to the USA would be nice too. I hope that this program will be the pathway to further study in the field of mathematics or statistics.
Three words to describe me are: approachable, ambitious and adventurous.
I love what I do because it empowers me with knowledge. With knowledge come better decisions.
