Mathematics permeates almost every discipline of science and technology. It is not only a tool for understanding the abstract models of real-world phenomena while solving practical problems but it is also the language of commerce, engineering and other sciences such as biology, physics and computing. The BSc in Mathematics program is unique among all universities in the territory.
The program offers seven tracks:
- Applied Mathematics Track
- Computer Science Track
- Financial and Actuarial Mathematics Track
- General Mathematics Track
- Pure Mathematics Track
- Pure Mathematics (Advanced) Track*
- Statistics Track
*The Pure Mathematics (Advanced) Track is specially designed for mathematically gifted students. Students in this track will study a series of mathematics courses at a deeper level, which better prepare the students to pursue postgraduate studies.
Extended Major options
Subject to quota availability, the MATH students can opt for an Extended Major in Artificial Intelligence (AI) or Digital Media and Creative Arts (DMCA). Extended Major is not a standalone major, but is adhered to a certain majors as expanded choices, enabling students to keep abreast of emerging technology and innovation that are shaping our society in a multi-faceted way.
On top of expertise in mathematics, the MATH students with an Extended Major will acquire multidimensional visions and knowledge of emerging technologies (AI or DMCA), and can apply innovative technological skills to solve real-world problems in the area of their expertise. Upon fulfillment of the curriculum requirement, the students will be awarded one of the following degrees:
- BSc in Mathematics with an Extended Major in Artificial Intelligence
- BSc in Mathematics with an Extended Major in Digital Media and Creative Arts
