Overview

Mathematics is humanity's most powerful tool for comprehending the universe and is essential for many fields of modern endeavour such as science, technology, engineering and finance.

About The Course

Mathematics is the language of science, technology, engineering and finance. It underpins the data analysis, forecasting, modelling, decision-making and problem-solving principles on which modern society depends. Mathematicians contribute creatively to almost every aspect of modern life and this major will equip you with the mathematical tools and techniques of at least two of the three key disciplines of pure mathematics, applied mathematics and mathematical statistics.

Pure mathematics proves theorems in a range of topics, usually motivated and illustrated by problems in physics, engineering and computer science. Applied mathematics uses the theory and techniques of mathematics and statistics to understand the real world. Mathematical statistics is concerned with the application of statistical methods. These applications can be in a variety of areas, such as medicine, business, finance, science and industry.

Career Pathways

Demand for Mathematics graduates is growing and outstripping supply. With this Mathematics and Statistics major at The University of Western Australia, employment opportunities can be found in a wide range of areas including finance (banks, insurance companies and investment analysis), government organisations (CSIRO, Australian Bureau of Statistics, Defence Science Technology Organisation, Bureau of Meteorology), public service (states and federal), teaching (primary, secondary and tertiary levels) and other industries such as computing, engineering, research and statistical consulting firms.
