BSc (Honours)


Programmes Overview

MAS offers the following degree programmes:

  • BSc (Hons) in Mathematical Sciences

    This curriculum equips graduates with analytical and reasoning skills, a broad understanding of modern mathematical concepts, and skills in computing and technical communication. Students can tailor the curriculum to their interests by pursuing one of four distinct tracks of study: Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Statistics, or Business Analytics. Students are also given the option of pursuing concentrations in the Mathematics of Information and Communication, or in Computational Mathematics.

    Students in this programme have the opportunity to specialize in a Track on Business Analytics, a specially-designed curriculum combining foundational mathematics courses with a selection of business- and finance-related courses offered by the Nanyang Business School (NBS) and the School of Computer Engineering. Students can be admitted to the Business Analytics Track after their first year of study, based on performance and interviews.

  • BSc (Hons) in Mathematical and Computer Sciences (Double Major)

    In this selective double major degree programme, run jointly with the School of Computer Science and Engineering, students take courses in both Mathematical Sciences and Computer Sciences, with an emphasis on the rapidly expanding fields of data science and artificial intelligence (AI). Graduates are equipped to work in the rapidly-developing fields of Financial Technology, Cybersecurity, and Data Analytics, or postgraduate degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science related disciplines. The programme provides in-depth specialized 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. Finally, the programme ends with a Professional Internship and a Final Year Project.

  • Integrated Degree Programme: BSc (Hons) in Mathematical Sciences and MSc in Financial Engineering

    This Integrated Degree Programme is by invitation only. Modern financial engineering makes heavy use of mathematical concepts and tools, including statistics, probability, computing, differential equations, optimization, etc. For those reasons, a mathematics curriculum is an ideal preparation to pursuing a career in finance and quantitative analysis. Year 3/4 MAS majors with very good academic results will be invited to apply for direct admission to the Master in Financial Engineering (MFE) programme.

    Exemptions may be granted for up to three MFE math courses (Calculus & Linear Algebra, Probability & Statistics, and Object Oriented Programming I) to students demonstrating strong knowledge in those topics.
