Mathematics teaches you to think logically and approach problems in analytical and creative ways.
RMIT offers one of the only stand-alone applied mathematics undergraduate programs in Australia.
Mathematics graduates apply their problem-solving skills to a wide variety of fields, including:
- banking and finance
- environmental modelling (resources, biodiversity, weather and climate)
- information security (coding, cryptography)
- engineering (fluid mechanics, optimising industrial processes).
This program focuses on applying maths to real-world problems to enhance your employment prospects.
Theory is linked to practical projects and applied to real scenarios. You'll make practical use of industry-relevant computer software packages and programming tools.
RMIT differs from many universities as you are enrolled in a mathematics program from the first day, as opposed to a generalist science degree.
You'll be well supported by a peer-mentoring system, and many of our final-year students get a head start in the job market by doing an industry placement.
This program is ideal if you're interested in:
- using numbers and formulas to solve problems
- finding logical and creative solutions
- advanced numerical skills that will set you apart from graduates in business or commerce.
You must have successfully completed an Australian Year 12 (or equivalent senior secondary school qualification) with a minimum 65% average (check calculator below).
Equivalent qualifications may also include completion of the RMIT Foundation Studies program or a recognised post secondary diploma in the relevant discipline with the required grades.
Meeting the minimum academic requirements does not guarantee entry. Your application will still need to be assessed and accepted.
