Computational Science

Bachelor of Mathematics

Apply your technical skills and mathematical knowledge to translate vast amounts of complex data into meaningful insights that help shape our future.

Recent advances in technology give scientists the ability to collect and process more data than ever before.

Computational science combines fundamental principles from computer science, mathematics and statistics to solve scientific problems across any specialist field.

Develop your skills in computational thinking and apply computational problem-solving strategies to design algorithms for collecting, processing and analysing vast amounts of data from various sources.

Apply your programming skills to construct large-scale mathematical models and simulations to analyse and interpret real-world data and generate meaningful insights.

You’ll learn to create a range of data visualisations and graphics to communicate your findings to scientific and non-scientific audiences.

Skills in computational science are essential for all scientific disciplines and any career where computational techniques are required for problem-solving, forecasting, data analysis or data visualisation.
