To be read in conjunction with the program of study requirements for the degree in which you are enrolled:
- Bachelor of Science (Honours) 1 Year
- Bachelor of Science (Honours) 4 Years
- Bachelor of Science (Honours) Enhanced Program for High Achievers
The honours year in Mathematics has been designed to provide graduates with:
- reinforcement of the theoretical and the practical aspects of mathematics
- a strong ability to critically analyse and solve problems
- the ability to work professionally as an individual, particularly in terms of a large research project
- insight into advanced areas of Mathematics
- an understanding of the need to undertake lifelong learning and the capacity to do so
- preparation for future professional roles as mathematicians.
On completion of the program students will be able to:
- use professional skills and knowledge in the systematic development of complex mathematical solutions, including the development of research-oriented systems
- demonstrate a broad understanding of the mathematical sciences discipline
- demonstrate an in-depth understanding of some areas of discipline specific knowledge
- apply their skills and knowledge in a professionally responsible manner
- communicate effectively with other mathematicians/statisticians, researchers and the wider global community using a wide range of technologies
- work professionally as an individual
- develop mathematical solutions appropriate to the social, political, international, economic and environmental contexts in which they are applied
- engage in the process of continuing learning needed to retain the necessary level of professional skills and knowledge in the area of mathematics and statistics
- plan and execute a research project, applying relevant methodologies and knowledge
- have developed research skills appropriate to postgraduate research or advanced industrial investigation.
