Mathematics Internship Program

CareerDC coordinates internship programs by connecting students with host organisations all over Australia.

The internships, which are practical work-placement programs designed to provide the intern with professional mathematical experience with the aim of providing industry specific opportunities is to enable the intern to develop skills that will enhance their prospects of gaining meaningful employment, building the student’s career and starting their future.


An internship within the mathematics field will allow students gain experiences in solving mathematical problems within businesses, industry and for the government. Though a small field, there are many areas of specialisation that students could appreciate and build better relations with organisations around.

Mathematics is present in daily life; You can contribute in areas such as engineering, environmental and statistical. The internship experience would provide the opportunity to gain the practical skills and the different stages of mathematical methods in business operations.

Students who search for internships within the mathematical field come from various study backgrounds. These include and are not limited to: 

  • School of Mathematics and Statistics
  • School of Mathematics and Applied Statistics
  • School of Mathematics and Physical Science
  • Any relevant Bachelor and or Postgraduate in Mathematical Science

Many degrees are generalist degrees that allow you to major in specific fields. As a result, the internship will be arranged to suit your area or areas of study such as:

  • Applied Mathematics
  • Computational Mathematics
  • Financial Mathematics
  • Industrial Mathematics
  • Informatics
  • Mathematical Modelling
  • Mathematical Sciences
  • Medical Mathematics
  • Pure Mathematics
  • Statistical
  • Research and Development

In this field of mathematics, the understanding of fundamentals and practices of mathematics would be at a reasonably proficient level. This would include the main subdivisions in pure mathematics, applied mathematics as well as, statistics and operation research. Student can look forward to integrate their university learning on industrial cases through:

  • Differential and Integral calculus, mathematical logic and linear programming
  • Environmental and financial mathematics
  • Vector calculus, dynamics and probability
  • Sampling theory, nonparametric statistical inference and stochastic processing.
