BSc in Mathematical Sciences with Second Major in Data Analytics

Bachelor of Science in Mathematical Sciences with Second Major in Data Analytics

Single Degree with 2nd Major

Combine a rigorous education in mathematics with foundational and practical skills in data analytics.

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.
