STUDY WITH US

Mathematics has been a human fascination since ancient time. At our School, students are well equipped with modern computer systems and a team of experts to help unlock their curiosities and realise their potentials. Many of our graduates have landed successful careers, whether they specialised in mathematics or statistics or both. We collaborate and engage with the research community internationally.

RESEARCH IN THE SCHOOL


The School of Mathematics and Statistics has a very active research component. Further information about each research groups may be found here.

As well as the research groups the School has members in three research centres. The ARC Centre of Excellence for Mathematical and Statistical Frontiers (ACEMS), the Centre of Excellence for the Mathematics and Statistics of Complex Systems and the Particulate Fluids Processing Centre (PFPC)

ARC Centre of Excellence for Mathematical and Statistical Frontiers (ACEMS)

The Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for Mathematical and Statistical Frontiers (ACEMS) brings together for the first time a critical mass of Australia's best researchers in mathematics, statistics and machine learning. This unique group works with partner researchers to
engage in research programs that combine new methods for the analysis of data with theoretical, methodological and computational foundations provided by advanced mathematical and statistical modelling. New insights developed by the Centre will have impact for end users working in collaborative domains of healthy people, sustainable environments and prosperous societies.

Centre of Excellence for the Mathematics and Statistics of Complex Systems

The Centre's mission is to stimulate research activity in mathematical and statistical modelling of complex systems. In doing so, the Centre will conduct research on criticality and phase change, Monte Carlo methods, statistical modelling, dynamic systems, risk modelling, and advanced computation.

Particulate Fluids Processing Centre (PFPC)

Australian Research Council (ARC). The Centre develops key science for the processing of particulate fluids of all kinds, concentrating on systems involving solid and liquid particles where the dispersed phase is colloidal in nature. Through the coordination of proven international strengths in surface chemistry, continuum mechanics and non-Newtonian fluid mechanics, the PFPC effectively solves particulate fluid processing problems experienced by the agricultural, chemical, food, inkjet printing, mineral, water treatment, waste management, ceramic and pigment industries.

ABOUT US

Professor Aleks Owczarek
Professor Aleks Owczarek, Head of School

The University of Melbourne's School of Mathematics and Statistics is one of Australia's leading mathematics and statistics schools. It has achieved this status through the high quality of its research and teaching programs. The School offers a wide range of subjects to undergraduate and postgraduate students and is involved in aspects of community life that impact on the interests of the School and the discipline.

We are a broad School covering areas of pure and applied mathematics, and statistics. We have research foci in Algebra, Continuum Modelling, Discrete Mathematics, Geometry and Topology, Operations Research, Mathematical Biology, Mathematical Physics, Stochastic Processes and Statistics and are partners in the Faculty of Science's "Centre for System Genomics".

We offer an undergraduate program primarily but not exclusively as a major through the Bachelor of Science and concurrent Diploma in Mathematical Sciences, a research training and coursework Master of Science degree providing training unique in Australia at the graduate level, and PhD training. The School runs a Mathematics and Statistics Learning Centre that looks after the large number of undergraduate students taught by the School.

The School has a growing number of academic staff including postdoctoral research fellows. Several member of staff are Fellows of the Australian Academy of Science and/or been awarded prestigious Fellowships and Awards. The School hosts two ARC Centres of Excellence, and have several ARC Laureate, Future and DECRA Fellows.

We are home to the Statistical Consulting Centre that engages with industry to provide high quality statistical consulting. We have a strong external and international focus and have started the first international research institute/research station in Australia in 2015, MATRIX@Melbourne. MATRIX will run research-intensive, residential programs addressing key mathematical challenges in an environment where internationally renowned scientists can collaborate and engage with the Australian mathematical and statistical research community for a significant length of time.
