Why study Computational Science and Marine Science?
Would you like simulate how climate change will affect our ocean environments? Or demonstrate how our marine ecosystems are changing over time? What if you could create programs to aid sustainable marine management?
Computational Science is an interdisciplinary field which uses skills from mathematics and information technology to tackle real-world scientific problems which can only be solved through computation.
Marine science investigates our oceans and coastal habitats to understand the complex interactions that occur in marine ecosystems. UQ has the largest marine research facilities of any Australian tertiary institution, equipped with the most up-to-date technology to explore the unique marine environments on the doorstep of our research stations.
In this dual major, you will learn to construct realistic mathematical models and simulations, perform quantitative analysis of scientific problems using computers, and develop skills to solve real challenges in the marine sciences.
