    This course is available for on-campus study by students with an International student visa.
    This course structure contains information about the units which comprise the course as well as the credit points required to successfully complete it.

    Stage one consists of 120 credit points(6 coursework units), stage two is the thesis component of this course, which is entirely research based and equivalent to 1 year of full-time study.

    Stage 1
    Consists of two core units and four elective units to be chosen in consultation with the Course Coordinator. Not all elective units are offered in any particular year.

    Core Units

    MAT5111    Thesis Preparation: Mathematical Research                20
    MAT5194    Thesis Preparation: Mathematical Background 1         20

    Elective Units

    MAT5101    Multivariate Statistical Analysis                                    20
    MAT5102    Time Series Analysis                                                     20
    MAT5106    Introduction to Geostatistics                                        20
    MAT5107    Advanced Independent Study 1                                   20
    MAT5114    Geostatistical Methods                                                 20
    MAT5115    Modelling and Simulation                                              20

    With the approval of the course coordinator, one of the above elective units may be replaced by a 4000 level mathematics unit.


    Stage 2
    The thesis component of this course is entirely research based and equivalent to 1 year of full-time study. Each semester students nominate if they wish to enrol into research thesis unit: MAT6200 at 50 or 100% of full-time enrolment. Students are required to continue re-enrolling in the thesis component of their study until the thesis is submitted for examination.

    During this year students write a research thesis under the supervision of a staff member. Available research areas currently include Mathematical Modelling, Image Analysis, Time Series Analysis, Spatial Data Analysis, Geostatistics and Spatial Modelling. Students who are unable to proceed beyond Stage 1 may be eligible to graduate with a Post Graduate Diploma of Science (Mathematics and Planning).
