Prospective Undergraduates

BSc (Hons) in Mathematical Sciences 

Overview

The curriculum is designed with the objective of equipping the graduate with rigorous training needed for the new economy, and with the mindset for continual life-long learning in order to adapt to changes. Provision is made to ensure breadth in knowledge and competency in useful skills such as communication, while depth is ensured through the requirements for the major. For the Major in Mathematical Sciences, apart from analytical and reasoning skills, together with problem-solving skills, acquired through the learning of rigorous mathematical concepts, students will also be able to pick up computing skills, technical communication techniques, as well as have the opportunity to learn how mathematics is connected with other disciplines such as biology, computer science, economics and finance. Opportunities for deeper investigations in the subject are also provided for students who seek extra challenge through special Courses, supervised independent study and research projects.

Given the broadness of mathematical sciences, four distinct tracks – in...

  1. Pure Mathematics,
  2. Applied Mathematics
  3. Statistics, and
  4. Business Analytics

are offered within the Major in Mathematical Sciences, catering to students with different interests.
