The School of Mathematical Sciences at Monash University is leading the way towards finding effective solutions to some of society's most pressing problems. Maths is the language of science and forms the basis of most of modern science and engineering. Our enthusiastic mathematicians love finding the true magic and beauty in maths and subsequently pass this passion on to their students.

Mathematics and statistics are also the two cornerstones for decision making and various quantitative activities in commerce, industry, education and defence. From direct and daily experience, most companies and organisations have realised that success depends critically on the level of analytical, quantitative and statistical skills of their workforce and they therefore seek employees with a sound mathematical training.

By studying mathematics at Monash, you will also develop general skills in problem-solving, critical thinking, modelling, learning, analysis, research and creativity, which can be used wherever your career may take you.
