Overview

  • Mathematics and statistics play an integral role in the world around us and is a big part of business decisions, technical developments, and scientific discoveries. Whether it’s developing a new product, business model, call-centre strategy, medical procedure or video game AI, you often need to gather data, perform testing and analyse performance before revealing the final outcomes. Mathematicians and statisticians get the first peek at the results and are at the forefront of predictions and forecasts in everyday life.
  • The logical thinking, problem-solving and interpretive skills you’ll gain while studying UniSQ’s extended Mathematics and Statistics major are highly valued by employers across many job sectors. 
  • You’ll examine the fundamentals of pure and applied mathematics, theoretical and applied statistics, mathematical modelling and operations research, and learn how to use computational methods as an aid to the processes of analysis, modelling and decision-making.
  • Establish a unique university qualification by combining your major with a second Bachelor of Science major (such as Environment & Sustainability, Information Technology, Astronomical and Space Sciences or Geospatial Science perhaps) or a set of minors and elective courses to suite your interests and career goals.
