Diploma in Mathematical Sciences  for Bachelor of Science Students
This advice also applies to Bachelor of Design (major in Civil Systems, Computing, Mechanical Systems, Spatial Systems) and Bachelor of Environments (major in Civil Systems, Physical Systems, Environmental Science, Geomatics, Landscape Management).
Students enrolled in the Bachelor of Science taking the Diploma may not have Mathematics and Statistics, Mathematical Physics or Data Science as their major in the Bachelor of Science. Students usually undertake an additional 50 points (4 subjects) of third year mathematics and statistics as well as the usual 300 points that make up an undergraduate degree. Below are possible course plans for 7 semesters (standard option). It is possible to overload and complete both the Bachelor degree and the Diploma in 6 semesters (accelerated option), but plans for this option are not given. The precise timing of subjects especially in second year depends on the area of major studies in the Bachelor of Science.

Note: ** Students intending to take the Applied Mathematics specialisation who do not already have evidence of competence in computer programming will also need to complete a computing subject to satisfy the computing prerequisite for MAST30028. These students are recommended to take COMP10001 Foundations of Computing as one of their level1 science subjects in semester 1, 2 3 or 4, or COMP20005 Engineering Computation as a level2 science elective in semester 3 or 4. Students in this situation may wish to seek individual course advice from the Mathematics and Statistics Learning Centre, ground floor, Peter Hall building.
