Applied Mathematics

Building problem-solving models that are the foundation for true innovation.

We understand mathematics reinforces much of our everyday world, from music on our mobile phones to models of weather and finance. That’s why we offer applied mathematics courses at Swinburne.

Applied mathematics courses are an opportunity to gain a foundational and practical understanding of mathematical and numerical methods. These are key components used to describe the phenomena within physical sciences and data analysis. We also explore molecular dynamics and statistical mechanics, geophysical fluid dynamics, earth sciences, computational biology and more.

By the time you graduate, you’ll have the confidence and skills to apply your wisdom to the workplace. Future careers can be found in research, government and industry.

I don’t think I would have had such amazing opportunities presented to me at other universities. I chose Swinburne because experience can never be replaced by academic ranking.
