Degree Programmes

BSc in Mathematical Sciences

This programme equips students with an understanding of modern mathematics and strong analysis, reasoning, computing, and communication skills. Students tailor the curriculum to their interests by choosing one of four tracks of study, and optionally pursuing concentrations in Computational Mathematics or the Mathematics of Information and Communication.

Students have the chance to specialize in a Business Analytics track, combining foundational mathematics courses with business and finance courses from the Nanyang Business School and the School of Computer Science and Engineering. Students can be admitted to the Business Analytics Track based on performance and interviews after the first year of study.

BSc in Mathematical and Computer Sciences (Double Major)

In this selective Double Major programme, run jointly with the School of Computer Science and Engineering, students take courses in both Mathematical Sciences and Computer Sciences. Graduates are equipped to work in the rapidly-developing fields of financial technology, cybersecurity, and data analytics, or postgraduate degrees in mathematics, computer science, and other related disciplines. The programme allows for in-depth training in one of four areas at the interface of Mathematical Sciences and Computer Science: Theoretical Computer Science, Cryptography and Cybersecurity, Financial Modelling, and Data Science.

BSc in Mathematical Sciences and Economics (Double Major)

In this Double Major programme, students learn how to apply mathematics in economics and financial modeling. The curriculum is geared towards students who plan to pursue careers in the financial services industry, or professional or graduate programmes in finance, economics, actuarial science, or related fields. The programme is run jointly with the Division of Economics at the School of Social Sciences.

BSc in Physics and Mathematical Sciences (Double Major)

In this Double Major programme, students explore the intersections of physics and mathematics, learning the skills needed to perform fundamental investigations of the natural world, as well as computation and problem-solving. Topics covered include differential geometry and general relativity, topology and condensed matter physics, and quantum field theory. The programme is run jointly with the Division of Physics and Applied Physics.

BSc in Mathematics and Economics

As of Academic Year 2018, this combined degree is no longer offered, except to returning NSmen who were previously offered the programme. New students should refer to the BSc in Mathematical Sciences and Economics (Double Major) programme, described above.
