Thesis and Presentations in Mathematical Applications and Computations (MATH4009)

Models are becoming an increasingly important tool in many branches of modern society due to advances in science and technology. As our understanding of these models improves, the complexity of the types of questions being asked increases. The objective of this major is to train students in techniques of model development, use and assessment.

A key requirement for future scientists, industry leaders, resource managers, and policy makers is an ability to build and evaluate models and/or interpret model outputs. Career opportunities for graduates extend into every part of society, including: research (e.g. CSIRO, Universities); public sector (e.g. Bureau of Meteorology, Murray Darling Basin Authority, state government agencies); and private sector (e.g. engineering, finance).

This honours program will provide students with the necessary skills to tackle the problems facing tomorrow's society.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

On satisfying the requirements of this course, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

1. Plan and engage in an independent and sustained critical investigation of a chosen research topic and its role in modern mathematics and its applications.
2,  Understand how relevant theory and concepts may be applied to a congate discipline.
3. Demonstrate capacity for mathematical reasoning through analysing, testing, and explaining concepts
from the chosen research area.
4. Communicate and explain complex concepts clearly and effectively to a variety of audiences.

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students.
