Whether you plan to work in a scientific field or industry like biomedicine, fisheries or mineral processing, or climb the corporate ladder as a business analyst, mathematical and statistical skills are in high demand.
Learn to develop a flexible outlook, a range of technical skills and a deep understanding of how mathematics and statistics are applied in a variety of contexts. You can focus on mathematical modelling, which covers methods and applications in the physical, environmental and life sciences and engineering, or applied statistics exploring the life and health sciences, the environment, commerce and industry. You can also combine units from both areas to give you a broad skill set.
With quantitative skills being highly desirable across a broad range of industries and fields already, the demand for graduates proficient in data analysis and modelling is likely to continue to increase as technology and the internet create a data explosion.
