Mathematics is the basis for successful decision-making and problem-solving independent of sector or industry. Mathematical and statistical models help us analyse and forecast results in economics, finance, medicine and industrial processes. This analysis helps governments and businesses understand the factors behind important decisions.
Graduates of UOW’s Bachelor of Mathematics will gain highly transferable skills in problem solving, data analysis, probability and variability, mathematical modelling, logistics and logic. The degree is flexible, so students can take up to one third of their subjects from other disciplines to expand their career options.
Applied Statistics uses mathematical concepts and methods to develop scientific experiments, sample surveys, medical clinical trials and environmental studies. It uses mathematical models of variation to enable analysis and forecasting in many industries.
