Overview

In addition to its more traditional role in modelling in the physical sciences, mathematics is now a key component in the analysis of financial markets, coding and cryptography, the design of computer networks and weather and climate modelling. Mathematics can be used to solve problems in fields that range from psychology to biology, chemistry and physics to engineering and commerce, to information technology.

The need for mathematics in the biological sciences, economics and medical technology is ever increasing. Mathematics would be a suitable option for the science component of a combined degree such as arts, commerce or law.
