# Undergraduate Degree Programmes

The School of Mathematical Sciences was established on May 29, 1974. As with the other Science Schools, the School offers the Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Applied Science degrees. In addition, the School is also involved in the Bachelor of Science with Education and Bachelor of Education degrees.

The Bachelor of Science (Mathematics) and Applied Science (Mathematics) programmes were formulated in an effort to produce graduates who are well-trained in the Mathematical Sciences to meet the nation’s manpower needs. The curriculum was devised so as to provide a broad-based and rigorous mathematics education. The skills obtained at the end of the program will provide a firm foundation to enable the graduate to further advance their knowledge in the Mathematical Sciences and provide specialized and solid applied mathematical sciences education.
