Honours in Mathematical Applications & Computations

The Honours program in Mathematical Applications & Computations differs from the traditional Honours in Mathematics program in that it focusses more on the application of mathematics. This program aims to be flexible enough to allow students to work on application areas from other subjects such as physics, chemistry, environmental studies or mathematical finance etc. Students may also be interested in projects available within the our research programs.

The program is spread over 10 months from the beginning of February to the end of November. It is also possible to begin in the middle of the year and to enrol in the program on a part-time basis.

2015 - The assessment consists of course work (47.5 per cent), a thesis (47.5 per cent) and seminar talks (5 per cent). Students take four courses, and also present two seminars. It is possible to take courses outside of MSI with permission from the program coordinator.

2016 - The assessment consists of course work (50 per cent), a thesis (47 per cent) and two seminar talks (3 per cent). Students take four courses, and also present two seminars. It is possible to take courses outside of MSI with permission from the program coordinator.

Some additional information is given in the Additional Information for Mathematical Applications & Computations Students and MATH4009 Programs and Courses webpage.

Entry is at the discretion of the program coordinator. There may be additional requirements depending on the application area. For example, it would be advantageous for students to have completed the Mathematical Modelling Major if they are interested in doing a computational or modelling project. Talk to the program coordinator or potential supervisor as early as possible to ensure entry requirements have been met.
