Objectives: The Major in Mathematics provides students with a solid and comprehensive undergraduate education in the subject. It aims to nurture quantitative reasoning, logical, analytical and critical thinking, innovative imagination, meticulous care to work, ability to conceptualize, skills for problemsolving, and capability to tackle novel situations and illdefined problems. Core courses in the curriculum emphasize fundamental knowledge and concepts in Mathematics and elective courses provide training in both pure and applied aspects of Mathematics. Throughout the curriculum there is also emphasis on experiential learning through guided studies, projects, seminars and summer internships. With the diversity of courses offered in the major, various specializations are available. These will lead to careers in a wide range of sectors including education, economics and finance, analytics and data science, logistics, management, research and further studies. 

Learning Outcomes: By the end of this programme, students should be able to:
 
Impermissible Combination: Major in Mathematics/Physics 



Notes: 1. Doublecounting of courses up to a maximum of 24 credits is permissible when a student with a science major opts to undertake a second major in science. The doublecounted courses must include SCNC1111 Scientific method and reasoning (6 credits) and SCNC1112 Fundamentals of modern science (6 credits). Additional credits to be doublecounted must be for courses required ('disciplinary core') by both majors. For cases with 24 or less doublecounted credits, the student must make up an equivalent number of credits by taking other courses offered by any Faculty. 

Remarks: Important! Ultimate responsibility rests with students to ensure that the required prerequisites and corequisite of selected courses are fulfilled. Students must take and pass all required courses in the
selected primary science major
in order to satisfy the degree graduation requirements.
