Bachelor of Science in Physics and Mathematical Sciences

Double major

A Double Major programme providing a rigorous education in the allied fields of physics and mathematics.

This Double Major programme is run jointly by the Division of Mathematical Sciences and the Division of Physics and Applied Physics at NTU's School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences. Apart from providing in-depth training in physics and mathematics, the programme offers special opportunities to explore the areas in which these two disciplines intersect in profound ways, such as differential geometry and general relativity, topology and condensed matter physics, and quantum field theory.

Graduates of the programme are exceptionally well-placed to perform quantitative investigations of the natural world, as well as any other jobs requiring strong analytical, computational, and problem-solving abilities.
