The Bachelor of Science (Mathematics) will give you the skills to solve problems in areas such as computer programming, climate modelling, and transportation.
From securing sensitive communications using cryptography to calculating the geostationary orbit of a satellite - mathematics is a product of human ingenuity that allows our modern world to exist.
It is fundamental to our lives.
Massey’s strength in applied mathematics means you’ll get to combine your learning with other science disciplines to gain extensive experience in a range of applications.
You’ll use your knowledge to solve problems in the areas like computer programming, climate modelling and transportation.
Massey’s mathematics programme is taught by leading researchers and encompasses the modelling of geothermal processes, cell growth, dynamical systems, scientific computing, combinatorics, topology, epidemiology, celestial mechanics, neuroscience, industrial mathematics, number theory, geometry and analysis.
This versatility demonstrates the variety of job areas available to mathematically-skilled scientists.
Some of the topics taught in mathematics courses include:
• differential equations • analysis • algebra
• combinatorics • mathematical modelling • discrete mathematics
Note: July start will take 3.5 years to complete.

To be admitted to an undergraduate qualification, applicants will need a minimum level of academic achievement from school, or another university or tertiary institution.
The specific level depends on which country or region of the world they are from.
If you don't have the skills or qualifications you need to be accepted into your chosen study, you can do foundation qualifications.
There are no specific entry requirements for this qualification, outside of university admission regulations. However, there is some expected background knowledge.
The following pathways will get you prepared to study this major.
