This degree enables students to upgrade their expertise in the mathematical sciences, either as a route to further study or to upgrade their quantitative skills in areas that are rapidly becoming more reliant on advanced techniques from the mathematical sciences, such as the biological and computational sciences. Graduates find careers in academia, government and consulting. [+]
A single two-year graduate degree offered by the ANU College of Science
ANU is ranked number one in Australia for maths teaching and research*.
We offer our students small class sizes and access to some of the best mathematicians in Australia, currently including 15 fellows of the Australian Academy of Sciences, two fellows of the Royal Society, ten recipients of the Australian Mathematical Society Medal and three ARC Laureate Fellows. Our researchers have access to up-to-date computing facilities including the National Computational Infrastructure supercomputer. We fulfil both a national and international role as a “research institute” in the mathematical sciences, working cooperatively with the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI) and a number of international centres....
