Why study mathematics?
Mathematics is at the root of many of humanity’s proudest achievements. It supports innovation and progress in science, engineering, technology, finance and economics.
For some mathematicians, solving a complex problem is a goal in itself. But Mathematics is also a practical subject that has many real-life applications.
We use mathematics to model and predict outcomes, from community health to the length of queues in communication networks. And because of the increasing availability and potential of large data sets, graduate mathematicians are in high demand across a variety of industries.
