Mathematics and Physics

Mathematics and Physics Subject Area   math_cs


The mathematics and statistics modules provide a solid foundation in the mathematical concepts and techniques needed to tackle problems related to computing and information sciences in both two and three dimensions.

This foundational skillset will ideally position the graduate with problem solving strategies required to develop challenging solutions in a computing environment.

There is a strong emphasis on the investigation of the concepts using mathematical software. Python is used for interactive computing both to re–inforce mathematical concepts, to study problems that are too large to solve by hand and to make real the connection between mathematics and programming. In later years R is used for statistical analysis. Applications of topics will be presented in a computing context where appropriate which will enable students to cultivate their problem solving capabilities.
