In high demand across all industry sectors, the mathematical sciences are central to powering Australia’s STEM capability with the skills to drive new technologies and innovation. As Australia’s only not-for-profit national voice and champion for mathematics and statistics, we work with schools, universities, industry, philanthropy, government and the community to help shape policy and skill Australia for the future.
Building engagement and capability, we drive programs to strengthen the discipline and enhance its impact and role in Australian education, research, innovation and industry. A collaboration of Australia’s university mathematics departments, our growing membership network includes over 41 Australian universities, mathematics societies and government agencies.
As the demand for technology and innovation increases, so does the demand for STEM occupations. It is estimated that 70% of the fastest growing occupations will require STEM skills and maths is undoubtably the tool students will need to take advantage of these jobs of the future and for those wanting to make a difference in our world.
Research and Higher Education
The AMSI Research and Higher Education program focuses on the provision of online and face-to-face mathematical sciences research training, primarily supporting undergraduates through to early career researchers. Our national programs aim to enhance the student experience by supplementing university curriculums with opportunities to receive discipline-specific careers advice, build strong science communications skills and create new personal networks to facilitate future collaborations.
Australian Postgraduate Research (APR) Intern is Australia’s only all-sector all-discipline PhD internship program, transforming Australian businesses through short-term 3-5 month university research collaborations. The Program doesn’t just open doors, it opens up new PhD talent, skills and thinking to industry by tapping into new worlds of innovation and opportunity.
