This specialisation of the Graduate Certificate allows students who have completed an undergraduate degree to refocus or expand their body of knowledge by completing the requirements of the Statistics & Stochastic Processes specialisation in the Mathematics and Statistics major of the Bachelor of Science. It provides a pathway into the Master of Science (Mathematics and Statistics).
Intended learning outcomes
Upon completion of this specialisation, students should be able to:
Construct detailed, logical, clearly presented and justified arguments;
Formulate and model practical and abstract problems in mathematics, including the use of information technology where appropriate;
Solve complex problems through the Identification and application of appropriate mathematical tools;
Communicate advanced mathematical ideas to an audience with a heterogeneous background in sciences;
Utilise a broad range of mathematical methods, with a particular emphasis on Statistics & Stochastic Processes;
Investigate the universal utility of mathematics within all fields of science;
Explain how mathematics is a discipline based on rigorous proofs and logical deduction.
