$11,441 per yearAt present, mathematical modelling is enjoying a high degree of public awareness, with real-world applications such as COVID-19 and climate modelling frequently appearing in the news. The Master of Mathematical Modelling will expose students to a broad range of realistic modelling techniques and provide them with expertise in advanced computational tools as well as fundamental knowledge of the underlying theoretical principles and assumptions. This programme is available with both 120- and 180-point pathways. It comprises core Engineering Science and Mathematics courses, and a broad range of electives. Students will also complete a research project worth 45 points. Find out what our campus locations and facilities have to offer in .

The Mathematical Modelling programme is a cross-faculty collaboration between the Department of Mathematics in the Faculty of Science and the Department of Engineering Science in the Faculty of Engineering. It is available with both 120- and 180-point pathways. The programme includes four core courses and elective courses in Engineering Science, Mathematics and Physics.

Students will also complete a 45-point research project.
