Mathematics is a critical tool for understanding and shaping the increasingly complex world around us. Those trained in quantitative methods have an edge in multiple fields of human endeavor including business and finance, information technology, and R&D.
The Mathematical Sciences programme, run by NTU's School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, offers a rigorous but flexible approach to mathematics education. All students receive training in the fundamental subjects of mathematics, such as calculus, statistics, and discrete mathematics. Thereafter, individual students tailor the curriculum to their interests by choosing one of four tracks: Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Statistics, and Business Analytics.
This Second Major programme equips Mathematical Sciences majors with additional training in data analytics, a discipline that is increasingly pervasive in science, technology, and business. The data analytics courses for the Second Major are offered by a wide range of Schools in NTU's College of Science and College of Engineering.

The Mathematical Sciences major is divided into four tracks: Pure Mathematics (PMAS), Applied Mathematics (AMAS), Statistics (STAT), and Business Analytics (BA). The distribution of Academic Units (AU) varies between the different tracks.
|Course Type||Academic Units (AU)|
|Prescribed Electives for chosen Track|
Choose one of the two options:
|24 (19)||24 (19)||23 (18)||26 (21)|
|Second Major Courses:
|Interdisciplinary Collaborative Core: Common Core||17|
|Interdisciplinary Collaborative Core: Foundational Core||10 (15)|
|Broadening and Deepening Electives (BDE)|
Can take BDEs offered by any School.
- AU figures in parentheses (x) indicate the number of AU if the option with PI is selected.
- A grade of A- or better in the Final Year Project (MH4900) is required to be eligible for Honours (Highest Distinction).
- Professional Internship (MH4912) is not available to students who take the Final Year Project.
- Students who do not take the Final Year Project can opt to do either Professional Internship (MH4912) or Professional Attachment (MH4913).
