BSc (Honours) Degree Programmes

The Division of Mathematical Sciences offers the following degree programmes:


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

BSc (Hons) in Mathematical Sciences
with Minor in Finance

In this special minor programme, students studying Mathematical Sciences take additional courses in finance and economics offered by the Nanyang Business School.

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

This Integrated Degree Programme allows students to complete a BSc in Mathematical Sciences and an MSc in Financial Engineering from the Nanyang Business School over four years.

The programme is by invitation only. Students enrolling in Mathematical Sciences with a strong academic record may be invited prior to starting their first year of study.

BSc (Hons) in Mathematical Sciences and
MSc in Financial Engineering (Direct Admission Programme)

In this Direct Admission Programme, high-performing Mathematical Sciences students may apply for direct admission to the MSc in Financial Engineering programme at the Nanyang Business School. Exemptions may be granted for up to three mathematical courses in the MSc curriculum. Invitations are sent to qualifying Year 3/4 Mathematical Sciences majors.

BSc (Hons) in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence

In this programme, run jointly with the School of Computer Science and Engineering, students explore the emerging field of data science and artificial intelligence, by mastering the synergistic disciplines of computer science and statistics.

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. 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.

BSc (Hons) in Mathematical Sciences and Economics
(Double Major)

This Double Major programme is run jointly with the Division of Economics at the School of Social Sciences. Students learn about how to apply mathematics in economics and financial modeling. It is ideal for students who are planning to pursue careers in the financial services industry, or professional or graduate programmes in finance, economics, actuarial science, or related fields.

BSc (Hons) in Physics and Mathematical Sciences (Double Major)

This Double Major programme is run jointly with the Division of Physics and Applied Physics. Students receive a rigorous education in physics and mathematics, and learn how to explore the intersections of the two fields, including topics such as differential geometry and general relativity, topology and condensed matter physics, and quantum field theory. The programme provides the skills needed to perform fundamental investigations of the natural world, as well as computational and problem-solving skills.

BSc (Hons) in Mathematics and Economics

As of Academic Year 2018/2019, this combined degree is no longer offered, except to returning NSmen who were previously offered the programme. New students should refer to the BSc (Hons) in Mathematical Sciences and Economics (Double Major) programme.
