The main reason for studying Mathematics to an advanced level is that it is interesting and enjoyable. People like its challenge, its clarity, and the fact that they know when they are right. The solution of a problem has an excitement and a satisfaction. All these aspects would be found in the ‘Mathematics’ Special Degree Program.

Wide importance of Mathematics, and the way in which it is advancing at a spectacular rate is that Mathematics is about pattern and structure; it is about logical analysis, deduction, calculation within these patterns and structures. When patterns are found, often in widely different areas of science and technology, the mathematics of these patterns can be used to explain and control natural happenings and situations. Mathematics has a pervasive influence on our everyday lives, and contributes to the wealth of the country.

Our students are in the fortunate position of having a wide range of career choices. The abilities

  • to use logical thought,
  • to formulate a problem in a way which allows for computation and decision,
  • to make deductions from assumption,
  • to use advanced concepts,

are all enhanced by this ‘Mathematics’ degree program. It is for this reason that mathematicians are increasingly in demand. With this ‘Mathematics’ degree program, a graduate gets the ability to turn his hand to finance, statistics, engineering, computing, teaching or accountancy with a success not possible to other graduates. This flexibility is even more important nowadays, with the considerable uncertainty as to which areas will be the best for employment in future years.
