Department of Mathematics and Statistics partnerships

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics partners with a range of national and international organisations to advance mathematical sciences in education and research.

Together we are shaping the future of the discipline, ensuring that the mathematical sciences contribute to the dynamic and technologically driven environments of industry, business and health.

Our students are technically trained, industry focused and job ready. We also support, and advocate for, mathematics as a key component of the education curriculum at all levels, from primary and secondary, to tertiary.

Our key partners include:

Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute

The Department is a founding member and Joint Venture Partner of the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute, the peak body representing mathematics research, engagement and education in Australia.

Our membership provides students with a range of opportunities, including winter and summer schools, and summer vacation research scholarships.

The Department works in collaboration with the Institute to produce the MathsAdds Careers Guide, featuring job advertisements and profiles that showcase opportunities for graduates. The partnership also allows us to contribute to strategic directions for mathematics, both nationally and internationally.

Data science industry

Work Based Learning is a feature of our Master of Data Science. Students gain practical experience in a range of industries – from science to finance – where the questions are not always clear cut and solutions need to be built from the basics learned in class.

A range of industry partners, including our Centre for Technology Infusion, provide students with hands-on work experience that complements the technical and theoretical learning undertaken in class, and enhances their career prospects.

Kyushu University - Institute of Mathematics for Industry, Australia Branch

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics hosts the Australia Branch of Kyushu University’s Institute of Mathematics for Industry.

Opened in 2015, this partnership supports collaborative research between Japan and Australia in the mathematical sciences. It provides researchers and students with exchange opportunities and knowledge advancement via access to joint subjects, seminars and workshops.
