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 BSc in Mathematical Sciences degree programme, run by NTU's School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, offers a rigorous but flexible approach to the mathematics education. All students in the programme receive training in the fundamental subjects of mathematics, such as calculus, statistics, and discrete mathematics. Thereafter, individual students can tailor the curriculum to their interests by choosing one of four tracks of study: Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Statistics, and Business Analytics. Our graduates have good career prospects across a highly diverse range of jobs.
