The Mathematical Applications and Computations specialisation is for students who wish to apply mathematics to a given field and are interested in undertaking an independent research project under the direction of a supervisor. The honours specialisation is usually taken full time for two consecutive semesters and includes research training, in-depth analysis of contemporary topics, and a substantial research project culminating in the production of a thesis. The specialisation is a solid foundation in the application of mathematics and can provide a pathway to a PhD or an entry into a career. A key requirement for future scientists, industry leaders, resource managers and policy makers is an ability to build and evaluate simulations that allow us to better understand real life events.
